Based on the color-rich, Veggie Deluxe formula, VEGGIE FX is fortified with an addition of a Cyclop-eeze® and NatuRose® coating and is one of our most exotic foods to date. Encapsulated with 100% pure cultured spirulina, freeze-dried Cyclop-eeze® (a crustacean with the highest known levels of carotenoids and "omega-3" fatty acids), NatuRose® (Haemato-coccus algae with a 15,000 ppm astaxanthin content) and E.superba krill, VEGGIE FX contains all natural minerals, nutrients and pigments designed to enhance the color and luster of your cichlids. With six seperate applications of color enhancing ingredients, the color promoting properties are rivaled only by our other specialty formula, COLOR FX.
At the same time, there are absolutely no compromises in the nutritional qualities. Raw, fully potent vitamins, digestive enzymes and garlic ensure that the fish are healthy and free of internal parasites. As in all Dainichi foods, we included calcium montmorillonite clay to simulate the natural uptake of mineral particles as well as to bind and neutralize metabolic toxins. Furthermore, the scouring action of the clay enhances the rejuvenation of the digestive tract which when combined with only two sources of starch (flour as binder and wheat germ as a source of vitamin E and B) ensures the maximum rate of digestion and assimilation of nutrients. The veggie formulas, VEGGIE DELUXE and VEGGIE FX are designed to prevent bloating. Rather than swelling to two or three times their original size, the pellets will break down to their granular state in the digestive tract of a fish. This feature makes it virtually impossible to cause "bloat" in even the most strictest of herbivores such as Tropheus species.Ingredients:

Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 4 times daily. Smaller, more frequent feeding are preferred over a single large one. Do not pre-soak the food prior use! Pre-soaking washes out vitamins, color enhancers, other nutrients, and lowers the performance of the food. All Dainichi foods have a low inclusion of starches to prevent excessive swelling in the digestive tract. Pre-soaking of Dainichi cichlid food is absolutely not required nor beneficial!
