Fish Food Flakes

Having pet fish is a fun and fascinating experience. You can become mesmerized when staring into your fish tank and watching your fish just swim around and interact with each other. But like any other living thing, fish require tender, loving care, and they need to be fed on a regular basis. Zen Pet Supplies has a huge selection of all different types of fish food, and our choice of fish food flakes is extensive. Fish food flakes are inexpensive and they provide your fish all the nutrients they need. We have fish food flakes for certain species of fish, and we also carry fish food flakes that can be feed to just about any type of fish you can think of. If you are looking for a particular brand or type of fish food and cannot find it on the Zen Pet Supplies website, please check back soon because we update our inventory on a regular basis. You can even contact us to inquire about what you’re looking for, and we’ll do everything we can to find a particular fish food for you.
Protein is an essential nutrient in any fish’s diet, so when you’re looking for fish food flakes here, be sure to choose flakes with fish meal, shrimp and other types of seafood on the label as these are loaded with protein. The nutrients in fish food flakes lose their “punch” rather quickly, so we recommend that you buy the amount of fish food flakes you’ll need to use over the next month. Fish food flakes more than a month old will not have the same nutrient power as fresh flakes. You can increase the chances of providing your fish the nutrients they need by choosing a variety of fish flakes and rotating them; this not only ensures your fish will get the nutrients they need, but it will give them a variety of flavors they’ll enjoy.

Some of the fish flake containers on sale now at Zen Pet Supplies have several different types of flakes including vegetable matter. Some fish only eat vegetable matter so it’s important to get this kind of food for those species. Almost all fish will enjoy some algae, so this is a great product to have on hand. Fish flakes from Zen Pet Supplies are perfect for top or mid level feeding fish, while algae is best for bottom feeders. When feeding algae discs to your fish, be sure to feed them only one disc at a time and watch how long it takes your fish to eat them. If the disc (or wafer) hasn't been eaten within a 24-hour period, you should take out the remaining disc so it doesn’t turn rancid and ruin your fish’s aquatic habitat. However, if it’s eaten quickly, it’s safe to feed more than one disc at a time to your fish. Be sure to check out all the other types of fish food available here at Zen Pet Supplies.
