If you’ve been following us a while, you know we’re really into offering our customers unique aquarium experiences, products, and ideas that they may not have seen before. And of course, we love bringing you new form factors of things you might be familiar with…like foods, for example!
We receive quite a few questions about Paradigm Fish Foods…We admit, this brand was new to us not all that long ago, and we had many of the same questions that you did. However, it only took a little research and a bit of trials of our own on our fishes to realize just how good this stuff is!
As you probably realized. we’re HUGE fans of Paradigm Fish Foods! We love these foods because they’re formulated to maximize net energy gain. This means you can feed less food and your fishes will realize as much energy gain as possible. When the fishes are utilizing more of the food, it translates into less waste in your aquarium! Always a good thing, especially with big, active, and rapidly growing fishes!
Paradigm is all natural, 100% grain and gluten-free, which puts it into a very unusual category of being the ornamental aquarium fish equivalent of “health food!”
Of course, to a lot of our customers, this food is brand new, and unlike any they’ve experienced before. It’s a “crumble”, which means you don’t simply sprinkle the stuff into your aquarium. You feed to your fishes by smashing it up, either manually, or with a cool gadget like the Innovative Marine Auqa Gadget Gourmet Grinder. How finely your grind this food up depends upon how small your fishes mouths are. The beauty is that you’re in control of the particle size you feed!
How much to feed is simply a function of trial and error. Paradigm recommends that you always start off feeding a bit less, because remember, this food is very nutritious, and you can still get the appropriate daily dietary requirements for your fishes by feeding less- seriously!
All in all, we find Paradigm to be one of the best values in fish foods, because not only do you get what you pay for- you get maximum nutritional value as well!
