Product information

There are hardly any fish that don’t eat insects and/or shrimps in their natural habitats! There are only a few highly specialised fish species, such as scale eating fish in freshwater (Plecodus straelini) or coral polyp eaters in marine water (a lot of butterfly fish) which don’t. However, if you offer them in the aquarium, these fish will often accept this food. All other fish species eat insects directly or indirectly (e.g. insect larvae in algal turf) and/or shrimps. For many fish, this is even demonstrated in the name of their diet - they are called "insectivores". The famous archerfish, which spits insects off leaves, is perhaps the best known example!

JBL therefore features insects to a much greater extent in the food compositions of the JBL PRONOVO range, but only if the fish target group has insects in its food spectrum, of course. Mixing insects into EVERY fish food for fashion reasons would be pointless! JBL PRONOVO INSECT is now available to focus on feeding insects to your fish!

Whole insects or insect larvae as fish food? It’s obvious we shouldn’t use large beetles as insect fish food. The chitin content of the shells would be far too high! Mealworms would be easy to obtain - but contain too much fat. The search for the "ideal" insect led to black soldier flies (Hermetia illucens, Black Soldier Fly abbreviated = BSF), but in larvae form. Larvae have 12 times the nutritional value of adult flies and a consistent composition. Black soldier flies are bred on a large scale and do not have to be taken from natural habitats. Since the larvae feed on animal and vegetable protein, their composition is perfect for fish. The protein of the larvae is characterised by a high vitamin concentration, a high biological value (amino acids) and very good digestibility.

FAQ
How long does the food keep after opening?

Please ensure you buy a packaging size suitable for your aquarium/terrarium/pond so that the quantity contained is used up within 4 months. Compare it with a tin of biscuits lying around for several months. When properly stored they are not necessarily soggy, but they are not quite as tasty as when the packet was opened. Therefore it is not advisable to use the food after this time.

The repeated opening and closing of the packaging brings the food into contact with bacteria and humidity over a longer storage period. Thus the quality of the premium food reduces continuously and this influences the vitamin content and the freshness of the food. For the benefit of your animals you always should feed them fresh food.

Really good food, especially for fish who prefer to swim near the water surface. My Hatchet fish seem to like it a lot!

Empecé probando este alimento en sobre y terminé usándolo en botes. Me encanta el tamaño que tiene y no ensucia el agua. En bote de 100ml trae bastante cantidad

Ich finde es sehr gut und es wird gerne von denn Fischen gefressen. Aber auf länger Sicht lohnen sich diese kleinen Tütchen nicht wenn dann benötigt man dir richtige Packung.

Wird von meinen Corydoras sehr gern gefressen. Da es schwimmenden Futter ist, ist es für Bodenfische wie Welse eher nicht geeignet.

Gutes Produkt.

Wird auch von den Guppys angenommen.

Leider nur die Stücke, wenn sie aufgeweicht sind. Ansonsten sind sie zu Hart für unsere Guppys und spucken sie immer wieder aus. Deshalb 1 Stern Abzug.

My fighters (betta) are very picky about dry food. I have now finally found the miracle product for them. Advantage of giving the appearance of a maggot and revealing a fish hunting instinct, thus reproducing reality. The only drawback is for some fish the size of the tubes, I recommend cutting them in half, but. I guarantee your fish will enjoy it!
