Zueflo - Grower-Flakes with Spirulina and Octopus

Zueflo - Robert Guggenbuehl's Top Aquaristics Grower-Flakes with Spirulina and Octopus

General information

Robert Guggenbuehl (Honorary President of Aquaria St. Gallen, Chairman of DCG Switzerland) wrote following report in the journal DATZ:

"My chichlids and killi fish in nearly 40 tanks want to be fed appropriate to their species. Moreover, the wild species which I caught during my tropical journeys are much more sophisticated than fish born in captivity."

Therefore, his long-time dedication to feeding fish in tanks has led to a developing idea of producing a high-qality food which is still affordable.
He tried to do without artificial colourants and flavourings. For a good durability, he added high doses of Vitamin C and E. In order to cover as many different proteins as possible, many different sources are combined.

Those different sources of protein promise good growth. By adding canthaxanthin as colourant, the pigments in fish will develop an intensified red, but also yellow, green and blue colour.

Meanwhile I have a three-year experience with this product. The fish have a beautiful colour, grow well and are very healthy. The high-quality ingredients are utilized very well and therefore strain the water less than cheap food which contains a high amount of undigestable ingredients.

Use

Sprinkle small amounts onto water daily, do not use too much.

As we do not add any attractants, scents of flavourings, it is possible that the fish might hesitate to eat the flakes, especially when they were used to food with additives. You need to be a little bit patient here; after 2 - 3 days this hesitation will fade. You can also make the change easier by blending in preferred food (e.g. frosted bloodworms) in the beginning.

Hallo zusammen, in einem 200 L Becken halte ich Zitronensalmler, blaue Neons, schwarze Neons, ein paar Antennenwelse, Prachtschmerle und ein Päärchen Königscichliden. Seit dem 15.10. füttere ich abwechselnd Frostfutter (weniger) und die Züflo von Drak. Das Ergebnis spricht für sich. Deutlicher Farbzuwachs ist zu erkennen. Dieses Futter kann ich wirklich nur weiterempfehlen !!
