The Scientifically Formulated Cichlid Flakes provide a nutritionally balanced diet for all cichlids. This scientifically developed formula contains a special blend that combines select vitamins, nutrients, biotin, and Omega-3 fatty acids to support metabolism, immune system health, energy, and growth. These hearty flakes stay firm and won’t disintegrate when fish strike them – meaning cleaner and clearer water. The flakes are ideal for top and mid-water feeding cichlids, including South American and Central American Cichlids and all African Cichlids. Feed 3 – 4 times per day as much as your fish will eat in 2 – 3 minutes.
