Fish love a varied diet
An unbalanced fish diet can lead long term to deficiency symptoms, diseases and fatty degeneration of organs. Provide your aquarium dwellers with a varied died in the form of live food. When catching or purchasing live food there is a risk of introducing bacteria and parasites into the aquarium.
Producing your own live food has many advantages:
• Free of parasites
• Rich in fibre & healthy
• No need to catch in ponds
• Promotes the fish's hunting instinct
• Increases spawning readiness
• Simple, quick and convenient
• Cheap alternative to frozen food
• It’s fun to do it yourself
Place breeding container in the stand provided. Fill it with water, add special salt and Artemia eggs (not included) to the container. Close the breeding container. Connect air pump and let it aerate for 24 – 48 hours. Open stopcock at the bottom of breeding container. Breeding water flows through the sieve and separates water from the live food. 1 spoonful of Artemia eggs (JBL ArtemioPur) contains approx. 0.3 g Artemia eggs. 2-3 spoons of Artemia eggs are added to the JBL culture device per batch.
