GlasGarten Shrimp Baby Food is firstly a powdered rearing food for ornamental shrimp. It is rich in protein and it contains zooplankton, natural vitamins and minerals. It also has high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids. As a result, all of the before-mentioned provides the young shrimp with everything they need for healthy growth, sufficient power and energy. Furthermore, the content of 300 ppm astaxanthin forms especially in red, yellow and orange shrimp. The color pigments cells from the beginning good, so they may show up in a blaze of color.
Newly Hatch Shrimp Larvae
In addition to the above-mentioned, newly hatched shrimp larvae need an ample range of different nutrients after their first moult. [That is to say, after hatching and until the first molt, they do not eat anything as they get their nutrients from their yolk sac.]
GlasGarten Shrimp Baby Food, in essence, contains all essential proteins and amino acids that are very important for healthy growth. In addition, the highly digestible carbohydrates and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) deliver the necessary energy for successful molting. Moreover, the carefully chosen algae, vegetables and herbs, for instance, supply the baby shrimps with micronutrients. Green-lipped mussels are furthermore well-known for their high content of glykosaminoglykans, which form a very valuable component of the shrimp carapace.
The multivitamin mixture we have also added provides your shrimps with all the vitamins they need while preventing deficiencies. The vital minerals and trace elements are provided by a concentrate of red coralline algae containing over 50 different minerals and trace elements.
Shrimp Baby Food is a full extrudate. This manufacturing method guarantees high digestibility. All the nutrients contained in this food are also highly bioavailable. The powdery micro granules form a fine filmlike layer on all the surfaces in the tank which is necessary as baby shrimp are quite fragile in the beginning. In other words, they usually remain in the place where they hatched and wait for the food to come to them. In essence, if the food does not come to them, they risk starvation which can cause death.
Shrimp Baby Food is manufactured with the utmost care. It is a fully extruded and 100% conglomerated powdered food. It further contains 300 ppm of astaxanthin for more brilliant colours.
