Goldfish - the most popular ornamental fish of all!
About 1000 years ago, the beautiful colours were bred out of crucian carps (cold-water fish) in China and the goldfish was created, complete with its own scientific name (Carassius auratus). Goldfish and its related breeding forms have no stomach and are omnivores that can develop a healthy appetite for aquatic plants. JBL PRONOVO RED INSECT goldfish food contains a high proportion of vegetable ingredients which reduce the hunger for aquatic plants. Insects and insect larvae form an important part of the diet alongside plants. This has also been taken into account in the JBL PRONOVO food by adding black soldier fly larvae.
Why do we need a special goldfish food? Goldfish are descended from the crucian carp, which comes from quite cool waters. In a cold environment, the metabolism is slower and therefore the main food requires a lower protein content than food for tropical ornamental fish. In addition, the goldfish likes to eat plant food. The goldfish enthusiast may have noticed this at the latest when his goldfish have wiped out all the plants. The JBL goldfish food PRONOVO RED therefore contains a high proportion of plants. Often, but not always, this reduces the fish's hunger for plants...
Probiotic or prebiotic - which is better?
Prebiotics are "substrates that are selectively used by host microorganisms and impart health benefits." Here, scientists agree that they promote digestion and thus health. In the case of our fish, there is another essential aspect: With a better digestive system, less food is excreted and thus the water is less polluted, causing fewer algae problems and keeping the water cleaner.
