We're always on the lookout for new, high-quality foods for our fishes. After much research, literally scouring the world, we’re proud to offer the Ebita Breed line of foods, imported from Japan. Wildly popular in a country where tropical fishes are wildly popular, it’s a high-quality, premium line of foods specifically formulated by passionate tropical fish lovers to provide for the specialized nutritional needs of your fishes. It's NOT simply a re-packaged hatchery feed, like so many specialized foods on the market seem to be these days.
We're not 100% certain, but we think that this may be the first time that Ebita Breed's fish foods have been offered to US hobbyists. These foods are of the same high quality as their well-regarded shrimp foods, and we've been very pleased with them during our testing! "Medaka Gozen" is a unique and highly nutritious food. It was developed originally by Ebita Breed in Japan to improve overall health, appearance and coloration in the Medaka (Oryzias latipes), a well-known killifish native to Asia. This food has some parallels to the "Lefish" series, and was developed around the concept of supporting beneficial digestive bacteria, and to help boost the immunity of fishes.
"Medaka Gozen" contains benefical Bacillus natto, and other bacteria to aid in digestive health and immunity, as well as nutritious krill meal and shrimp meal for protein. In addition to its immunity-supporting properties, the food offers pigment-supporting zeaxanthin and lutein, which intensify yellow pigments.
Although specifically formulated for the Medaka and other killies, this food can be fed to all kinds of freshwater fishes, ranging is size from juvenile to adult. The particle size of this unique food is perfect for smaller-mouthed fishes, such as Apistogramma, Rasbora, Tetras, Angelfishes, and Betta species, and the color-enhancing properties are useful for all sorts of fishes. In our trials, fishes seem to really take to this food.
It's a great food to use to supplement frozen or live foods, and may be fed several times weekly to help keep your fishes in peak health and color. The resealable container lets you store the unused food in a refrigerator for up to 6 months after opening, while still retaining its beneficial nutritional and immunity-boosting properties.
