Aquarium Life Support Systems continues to offer the highest quality, scientifically formulated products at price points reflecting true value. Our CS-Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet fish food is no exception. Formulated from the best ingredients, and fortified with vitamins and probiotics, CS-Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet provides an ideal diet for all herbivorous and omnivorous aquarium fish, both freshwater and saltwater. Pairing Calanus with Spirulina, this new flake food offers a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids [eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)] together with astaxanthin, for healthy growth and maximum coloration. Plus, every batch is packed with a triple dose of immune-boosting vitamins. And to make sure it delivers the maximum nutritional support to all aquarium fish, CS-Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet contains probiotic supplements that have been shown to support growth and disease resistance.
Recent understanding of the role played by omega-3 fatty acids in the vertebrate diet reveals a plethora of beneficial effects, including development of the nervous system and suppression of inflammation. While fish are themselves the main source of these beneficial fatty acids in the human diet, like us fish are unable to synthesize these compounds and must obtain them from dietary sources, primarily algae and phytoplankton. In captivity, fish are typically unable to obtain sufficient algae and phytoplankton and should therefore receive a nutritionally complete formulated diet such as CS Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet.
Scientific research recently demonstrated the value of supplementing the diet of captive fishes with probiotics. (Probiotics are certain beneficial micro-organisms.) Fish that received probiotic supplements grew faster and healthier than control fish that received only standard dry food. Now, CS Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet food puts the power of probiotics into the hands of aquarists everywhere. When fed along with added vitamin C, probiotics resulted in even better growth.
[ Note: the heat necessary for processing pelleted and flaked foods destroys living probiotic microorganisms. However, research has been done that would suggest the dead organisms retain surface antigens that boost growth rates by stimulating the fish immune system.]
Biotin plays a crucial role in fish energy metabolism, while vitamins A, D-3 and C are essential for a variety of physiological processes within animal cells. Methionine is added to help balance the amino acid content of plant-derived proteins, to provide a nutritionally complete diet containing all essential amino acids. With its high levels of immune-supporting and growth promoting ingredients, CS Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet supplies an ideal diet for finicky species that are transitioning from live to prepared foods. No other aquarium food contains both Calanus and probiotics.
Best results with CS Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet will be obtained when the aquarium is maintained according to commonly accepted standards of water quality, space, lighting and water movement appropriate to the species housed in the tank. CS Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet can be used in combination with any other aquarium supplement or additive.
CS Pro Calanus Spirulina Pellet is available in both large and small pellets, in convenient 5-ounce and 1-pound containers and a 5-pound bag for store use or refill sales.
