NutriDiet® Shrimp Flakes is a premium and nutritionally balanced diet formulated to meet the requirements of marine and freshwater fish. Shrimp Flakes include both shrimp and krill, providing the fish with maximum aquatic protein content to support healthy growth. They contains a broad spectrum of all the important components needed in marine and freshwater fish diets: protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.
Also included in Shrimp Flakes is the Seachem’s product, GarlicGuard™, which is not only a natural attractant, but also helps to protect the fish against bacterial and parasitic infections. Vitamin C is an especially important factor in the growth and health of aquatic animals, and is present in high levels in NutriDiet® Shrimp Flakes. This vitamin is a cofactor in the processes necessary for the formation of connective tissue, scar tissue in wound repair, and bone matrix. In a natural diet, vitamin C is hard to obtain but critical in addressing healing and growth in many fish. Like all the formulas in the NutriDiet® food line, Shrimp Flakes contain Chlorella Algae as an exceptional source of vitamins and minerals. This algae contains extremely high levels of enzymes, vitamins, and minerals including the full vitamin B complex. It is far superior to the Spirulina algae common to many flake foods available on the market.
Shrimp Flakes contain probiotics which allow for more rapid and simplistic digestion of the partner nutrients. Less energy is required by the fish to digest the food. The food is more completely digested allowing for less waste production in the aquarium. This also allows for more nutrient uptake and increased immune function. Lastly, patent pending compounds complete the formulation to enhance immune function further as well as extend life potential, promote natural growth, and enhance the color of fish.
