Vitalis Cichlid Carnivore Pellets are a complete pet food suitable for all carnivorous cichlid species. These pellets are about 1mm in diameter, making them best for small to medium fish. If you have medium to large cichlids we also stock this product in a pellet size of around 4mm in diameter.
This food is especially designed for cichlids from Central/South America and Africa. However, carnivorous cichlids will also benefit from some green food in their diet too. Green foods can help to improve digestion and colouration of your tropical fish. If you have carnivorous cichlids you should also feed some Vitalis Cichlid Herbivore Pellets as part of their diet.
This unique soft, sinking pellet formulation is very palatable and highly digestible. Which means that there will be less waste in your aquarium compared with lower quality cichlid foods. Less waste equals improved water quality!
It is important not to overfeed. Ideally test your water once a week so that you can keep an eye on the water quality. If your ammonia and nitrite are each consistently staying at 0ppm and your nitrates are always under 30ppm it most likely means that your feeding is about right.
What are Vitalis pellet foods made from?
Vitalis Cichlid Carnivore Pellets include a tailored blend of fish and fish derivatives, derivatives of vegetable origin, oils and fats, molluscs and crustaceans. Designed to maintain peak health and condition in your fish.
These pellets come in a handy sized recyclable plastic tub that is water resistant. To keep the food in best condition, always make sure your fingers are dry before picking up a pinch of fish food. Also, replace the lid after use and store in a cool, dry place.
Each of Vitalis’ pellet diets are soft for ease of digestion and designed to sink in water. This is to encourage a natural feeding experience for fish.
Vitalis pride themselves on high quality, sustainably sourced ingredients.
