Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 3 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!
The unique properties of Dainichi's encapsulation process enables us to apply the spirulina and the vitamins (especially vitamin C), in their raw, uncooked state which produces exceptionally deep reds (hi) and bright whites. A higher proportion of vegetable proteins ensures a fast rate of digestion. This is an important feature during cold weather where a cold spell can drop the water temperature to a level where the metabolic rete of the fish drops to a virtual stand-still.
