Pure Spirulina Flake



NEW UNIQUE PRODUCT: Not your typical fish food which is processed using fillers and ‘extra’ cost saving additives Our PURE 95% SPIRULINA ALGAE is a large conventional flake size suitable for a large variey of species. NO other commercially prepared foods approach this level of Spirulina concentration. Spirulina is generally the costliest ingredient in commercially prepared fish diets. Many flakes are called Spirulina Flake even if it has only 3% Spirulina in it. Some of the best have no more than 14% Spirulina! Often dyes are added to make it look ‘greener’. Many will also add fillers and fish meal or even rudiment animal byproducts and bloodmeal to boost protein levels.

It has a wonderful fresh “ocean green” aroma which your fish will know is different too. Tropheus and other herbivores can be given a diet of this flake with supplements of live food (Daphnia and newly hatched Brine Shrimp) and some Freeze Dried foods such as FD Plankton. This PURE SPIRULINA FLAKE can also be mixed in with conventional Spirulina Flakes or other flake foods to boost the nutritional value of your feeds while providing a cost savings over using it 100%. The PURE SPIRULINA FLAKE is processed unlike other flake foods in that the Spirulina is not subjected to multiple processing steps thereby providing much higher carotenoid content. In other words; most of the nutrients which Spirulina is famous for, are left intact. Only the highest grade of raw Spirulina algae processed in an unique method provides a product unequaled by cut & paste imitatiors. Once you feed this product for a period of time you will feel guilty if you ever give them anything else!
Spirulina is an indispensable ingredient for many species of fish and should be a staple in the diet of all Herbivorous ones. Spirulina is a naturally occurring micro-algae which provides nutrients not found in other feeds. It contains high levels of protein to provide the nutrition your fish need to thrive but in a form appropriate to herbivores. There are no cereals or fillers in this product to potentially bind up and “BLOAT” delicate herbivorous fish. Aids the digestion process for fish with long instestinal tracts. It is loaded with minerals and color enhancing Carotenoids.

Contains natural immune stimulating compounds that increase the health of fish. The new larger flake size can be easily crumbled into smaller pieces for small fish or left large for full size ones. The unique “ALL SPIRULINA” nature of this food also gives it the distinction of being the only Spirulina flake product that you can actually overfeed to your fish without worry of complications typical of overfeeding with conventional fish foods. Excess food does not ‘rot’ or ferment in the tank within a short period of time like other foods with cereals or fish meal in them do. Our PURE SPIRULINA FLAKE passes through their digestive tract quickly and easily and visibly! Yes, you will see the differences in the fish’s feces too! When fed this food, the feces appear dark, almost black and dense, as it should be for herbivorous species. Applications are many including but not limited to;
Tropheus, Pseudotropheus, other Mbuna type cichlids from the Rift Lakes of Africa, Plecos, Whiptail Catfish (sp. Farlowella), Ancistrus many Marine Hrbivores such as Tangs and more. If you have experience with other fish not listed, let us know, we will certainly add them to the list.
