Spirulina is a blue-green plant plankton rich in raw protein and seven major vitamins: A1, B1, B2, B6, B12, C and E. It naturally contains beta carotene, color-enhancing pigments, and a whole range of minerals. In addition, it contains all essential fatty acids and the eight amino acids required for complete nutrition. Zoo Med Spirulina 20 Flakes contain a full 20% Spirulina and provide a complete high protein diet for freshwater fish, marine fish, goldfish, crustaceans and invertebrates. Research has shown that fresh and saltwater fish exhibit superior growth, maturity, energetic behavior, and more elegant coloring when fed Spirulina. It is also well documented that Spirulina improves egg production and hatching rates, stimulates the reproductive processes, increases survival rates of younger fish, and arouses the appetite of fish. You’ll see an amazing difference when you feed Spirulina 20! Feed 2 to 4 times daily. Do not feed more than can be eaten in a 5 minute period. Zoo Med’s Spirulina 20 fish food flakes are perfect for African Cichlids, Swordtails, Platies, Guppies, Mollies, Saltwater Angels and Tangs.
Over 30 Years of Innovation. Started in 1977 by 19 year old Gary Bagnall and college friend Mark Lemke, ZooMed started as a reptile company out of a one car garage located in Costa Mesa, California. It has evolved into a company that introduced the first American reptile vitamin in 1982 and never looked back! Today the company holds 3 reptile product patents with 3 more pending. Zoo Med`s greatest accomplishment has been the invention of UVB lighting for reptiles, which took place in 1993 and became the standard the world over for Zoos, Veterinarians and the reptile hobbyist.
