Our recommendations on how to get the most out of your Vitalis diet as well as answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
How should I feed Vitalis Platinum Marine Range to my fish?
What are the benefits of a soft pellet diet?
Our soft, sinking pellets are uniquely designed for ease of digestion. Their soft nature means they compress within the buccal cavity of the fish, making them easy to swallow. Once the pellet reaches the gut, its malleable consistency ensures that is then easily digested.
What ingredients go into Vitalis diets?
All of the high quality ingredients that go into our fish food are sustainably sourced and are mostly human-grade. These include:
Whole Fish Meal - Our fish meal uses the whole fish, not trimmings and off-cuts. This ensures carnivorous and omnivorous species receive the correct nutritional profile they reuire for optimum growth.
Algae - We source a variety of types of sustainably harvested algae to ensure our products include a high quality blend of nutrients, minerals and trace elements required by herbivorous and omnivorous fish. We also include spirulina in our freshwater diets.
Shrimp, Mussel, Krill & Squid - Incorporating specific natural proteins to our diets, these bio-available components also aid in making Vitalis feeds more attractive and palatable to carnivorous and omnivorous species.
Fish Oils - We utilise a blend of fish oils, which are food grade ingredients for maximum quality. These aid the production of our unique soft pellet and deliver your fish the energy and essential fatty acids they require for growth.
Natural Pigments - Astaxanthin and canthaxanthin, found in crustaceans, which promote a healthy colouration in your fish.
What is "Inorganic Matter"?
Inorganic Matter - also know as Crude Ash or Incinerated Residue - is a legal term that all pet food manufacturers must declare on their label. It is not an added component, but simply the amount of minerals present within the food, as determind by a set analytical technique.
Why are Vitalis flakes all one colour?
We do not add any artificial colours to our products. All the pigments within our diets are natural to the ingredients used and are what the fish would consume in the wild. These are, by their very nature, not particularly bright and varied colours.
