Food Sticks are a complete, scientifically formulated nutrient mix, developed for top-feeding carnivorous fish whose main diet of live food tends to cause nutritional deficiencies. Using Food Sticks instead of live foods reduces the chance of infection from parasites or bacteria which tend to hitchhike in live foods.

    Feeding:

    Feed two (2) to three (3) times daily only the amount your fish will completely consume within a few minutes, feeding one stick at a time. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding and always remove uneaten food after feeding period. Carnivorous fish many resist a new type of food when changing their diet from live foods to a stick type food, continued use will ensure acceptance. Throwing the stick at the surface of the water causing a splash can sometime improve acceptance as this mimics the action of a live fish.

    Note: Hikari® Tropical Food Sticks contains higher levels of natural ingredients which may cause a slight change in color from one production lot to another. Rest assured because of our rigid quality standards each package meets our superior nutritional specification.
