Flakes are an indispensable ingredient of most fish tanks, often tailored specifically for specific types of fish or featuring color-enhancing agents.
Some species of tropical fish require specific levels of nutrients in their diet to thrive, making it essential to understand which fish to feed and how. Here are a few suggestions.
Tropical Discus Gran Wild
TROPICAL DISCUS GRAN D-50 PLUS is a multi-ingredient food in granular form that slowly sinks, composed of algae, krill and fruit for daily feeding of discus fish and other demanding species from wild catch. Its delicate texture softens quickly in water and is enthusiastically accepted by wild-caught species. Unsaturated fatty acids, protein (rich in essential amino acids) vitamins from Spirulina and chlorella provide essential amino acids while trace elements (including Iodine, Chromium selenium and Iron) help promote excellent condition intensive growth vitality while natural astaxanthin intensifies coloration while beta-glucan helps strengthen immunity systems.
High quality flake food designed to enhance discus fishes’ colour. A high dosage of natural carotenoids such as astaxanthin can help intensify all spectrums of intense and vivid hues in subcutaneous fat-laden fish, especially discus species with thick layers. Furthermore, adding zeolite helps ensure healthy digestion and release of toxins from their bodies.
Slow sinking granules for large species of labyrinth fish, made from herring and insects (source of high quality protein and Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids). Highly palatable.
Tropical Green Algae Wafers
Loricariidae are fish species which require high proportions of vegetable components in their diet and feed by scraping hard surfaces for food sources in nature. Spirulina and Ketapang leaves can aid digestion while zeolite helps release toxins while kelp algae boost immunity.
Pellets are larger than fish flakes and designed to float, making it easier for bottom dwellers to consume them. This makes them the ideal food source.
TANGANYIKA CHIPS are multi-ingredient sinking chips designed specifically to meet the nutritional needs of larger cichlid species from Lake Tanganyika (Genera Altolamprologus, Julidochromis, Lamprologus, Neolamprologus and Lepidiolamprologus etc.). Each food item contains 70% marine-sourced ingredients such as shrimps, krill and squid to provide these fish with quality proteins and essential amino acids essential for their wellbeing.
Lake Tanganyika, Malawi and Victoria boast some of the richest cichlid communities found anywhere in East African rift lakes, featuring many species that are diverse phenotypically, behaviorally and genetically.
Tropical Malawi Chips
TROPICAL Malawi Chips are slow sinking flakes formulated specifically to meet the high nutritional requirements of Lake Malawi cichlids and other tropical fish with complex diets, such as herbivorous or omnivorous species with higher nutritional needs such as wheat germs providing valuable unsaturated fatty acids or l-carnitine supporting fat metabolism. These chips feature easy digestion vegetable proteins from green peas, spirulina and kelp algae which easily digest. Wheat germs provide valuable unsaturated fatty acids while wheat germs provide vital unsaturated fatty acids while L-carnitine helps support fat metabolism.
It also contains natural color enhancers.

Fish that feed at the surface need food that slowly dissolves without clouding up their environment. Our floating flakes for these fish provide herring, squid, calanus and insect proteins as well as natural carotenoids and stabilized vitamin C to strengthen immune systems and boost health.
Tropical Ovo-vit strengthening egg flakes are an invaluable supplementary food source, providing fish with essential proteins, unsaturated fatty acids and easily absorbable lecithin from egg yolk. As they support growth, maturation and spawning processes they make the perfect supplement for fry or young fish with high nutritional demands.
