As a breakdown of the specific features of this fish food:

  • Premium Spirulina flakes with 40 % protein-rich Spirulina algae (Spirulina platensis).
  • Spirulina platensis has a protein content of over 65 %!
  • Special features: Ensures perfect acceptance with finely ground whole shrimp (6 %)!
  • Garlic (1 %) promotes the health of the fish

JBL Spirulina contains gently spray-dried algae (spirulina platensis), raw vegetable material and plant fibre, yet also has a small proportion of animal proteins specially balanced to meet the specific feeding habits of algae-grazing fish in freshwater and saltwater. When grazing on algae beds these fish regularly consume small animal organisms (2% shrimp). Over 4000 proven vital substances in spirulina algae as well as essential carotenoids promote health and fast, long-lasting natural colouring. Essential minerals and vitamins ensure healthy growth and increased resistance to diseases. The addition of 1% garlic in JBL Spirulina helps promote growth.
