Indeed, over the years, the mark is necessary in the field of’food frozen fish with more of 45 references ! Known of the Marine Aquarium ; Ocean Nutrition not long before mark the minds with regard to the quality and diversity of its products.

The mark will be speak it frequently with very specific lines. So, Atison's Betta range was a real success, as nauplii of brine instant !

A pellet-shaped to vase…

When I view the box for the first time, I remember having found her attractive, but also spontaneously, I said to myself : "Another one". granulate In addition ! "
But what a surprise when I discovered with surprise the English term "Bloodworm shaped." (In form of bloodworms)

The arguments of the mark :

Form of bloodworms

-Enriched with garlic, Spirulina and stabilized vitamin C

-Enhances the colors of fishes, Boosts the immune system

-Increased mucus production during the larval phase

The formulation seems to me as relevant as found in the main ingredient of nauplii of Artemia (I don't remember having already seen this). Then is of the fish meal or of krill. For colors, the canthaxanthine and the Spirulina (among others) are present.

The overall analysis gives this : Protein 41.8%, Humidity 11%, Fat matters 8.5%, Ash 8%, fibres 3%.

L’essai sur mes discus

The first thought that came to me at the opening of the box was intended for the discussophiles who have difficulty feeding their fishes with granules.

My red melons have not remained indifferent…


Despite all, regards my discus, they have never seen one bloodworms ! I was so curious of their reaction. I was surprised by the incredible likeness of granulate with the worms. It seems also ringed as its counterpart ! In the water is also interesting ; may be a little "harsh" but in the water, the granulate seems quickly soften making it more attractive for the fishes. However, even after several minutes in the water, It retains its original form.

On the left of vases, right pellets…


Being accustomed to eat small granulates, I started by lightly crush them the «» Discus formula pellets ". Quickly, They agreed that such food what.
Its formulation and its size, I think that this food is most suited to the discus adults or subadults.

The appetite is relatively good because fish throw themselves on this food After a few days. I was also able to test them in the phase of reproduction with my couple of red cover. I would say that mucus production was superior but I must say that larval rearing was very well déroulé…

  1. Hello Yann,

    When you return to the "Discus formulated pellets" Ocean Nutrition, distributed to wild discus.

    I have introduced this food (dry and damp) two months into their meal.

    After long weeks (1 and a half months), they begin to consume moderately with a preference when it is softened.

    The result is therefore the very conclusive moment.


    Good end of day.

    A more.
