Cichlids are an incredibly diverse group of fish with 1700 species. They range in size from a few centimetres (checkerboard cichlid) to 80 cm Crenicichla species. All cichlids are brooders. Their food spectrum ranges from microorganisms to plants and other fish. It is therefore important to be well informed about the species kept in the aquarium!
JBL PRONOVO CICHLID S has been specially developed for smaller species up to about 10/12 cm in length. The most common of these species kept in the aquarium are
Microgeophagus, Apistogramma, Pelvicachromis, Pelmatochromis, Nannacara, Nanochromis, Crenicara, Laetacara, Dicrossus und Ivanacara. Eartheaters of the genera Geophagus and Satanoperca grow large, yet also prefer small-sized food, which they seek out from the sand (hence the name eartheater).
JBL PRONOVO CICHLID M is suitable for all medium-sized cichlids from 8-20 cm. This includes many species of the genera Cichlasoma, Acarichthys, Aequidens, Thorichthys, Amalatitlania, Crytoheros, Heros, Andinocara, Pterophyllum, Uaru and many more.
JBL PRONOVO CICHLID XL is then ideal for the big guys between 15 and 25 cm. This includes many species of the genera Crenicichla, Cichla, Amphilophus, Astronotus, Mayaheros, Cichlasoma, Rocio and several others.
Advantages of JBL foods:
Use of pure fish protein without cheap fish meal. Thus less phosphates and fewer algae problems.
Optimum protein/fat ratio leads to healthy growth.
Mainly proteins from aquatic animals. Meat from warm-blooded animals is NOT processed at JBL!
Prebiotic: Scientists are agreed on this that prebiotics promote digestion and thus health. In the case of our fish, there is another essential aspect: with better digestion, less is excreted and the water is thus less polluted, causing fewer algae problems and keeping the water cleaner.
