Product details

Catfish and especially Plecos need a different diet.  Cellulose is a part of that diet in the wild as they feed off the roots and branches of dead and live trees and shrubs.  To provide those nutrients in an aquarium we added cellulose in the form of Stinging Nettle.  Just enough to provide what is needed.  We also made the wafer hard and with some weight to encourage the natural scraping habits found in the wild.  As these fish are nocturnal, most of the feeding is at night, so this pellet will hold up for hours in the tank and will not foul the water. 

We use Green Pea as our primary protein and add fish, herring, kelp, shrimp and spirulina to round out the diet.  And, over the years users report that this formula is a favorite of lots of other fish.  So, you should try it in a tank with some finicky eaters.

Quarantine Procedures

All fish are inspected to ensure quality upon arrival at Killick Coast Aquarium. If there are issues with any of our livestock, it will be quarantined and treated according to best practice.

Your Responsibility

It is your responsibility to follow acclimation procedures and ensure that your tank is cycled and set up appropriately for the species purchased. It is also important to research tank mate compatibility prior to purchase.

If possible, a good practice that we highly recommend is setting up a separate quarantine tank for you to monitor your new livestock before introducing it to your tank.

Remember to always acclimate your livestock.

Acclimation

Once you receive your livestock, it is important that you follow the below protocol to acclimate your fish.

1. Float the unopened bag in your aquarium for 10-15 minutes. This allows the temperature in the bag to match the aquarium temperature.

2. Open the bag and add about 1/2 cup of aquarium water to the bag leaving the fish inside the bag.

3. Continue to add 1/2 cup of aquarium water to the bag every 10 minutes. Usually 3 additions are sufficient.

4. Place the fish in the aquarium using a net. Discard the water in the acclimation bag.

IMPORTANT: Please watch fish carefully while acclimating for signs of distress or oxygen deprivation (gasping, loss of balance, lying on their side on the bottom of the bag, etc.). If fish exhibit any of these symptoms, remove them from the bag immediately and place them in the aquarium.
