Robert Guggenbuehl’s Top Aquaristics Grower-Bits with Spirulina and Krill
Robert Guggenbuehl (Honorary President of Aquaria St. Gallen, Chairman of DCG Switzerland) wrote following report upon the introduction of grower-bits:
“First of all, a sincere thank you to all our loyal customers buying the approved grower-flakes. The quality of our fish food has gotten around. The clientele of pet shops and breeders of ornamental fish is becoming bigger every day. The end customers are nearly always giving us a positive feedback. Sometimes, it takes a little time until fish get accustomed to this food and start to eat it greedily. We do not use any artificial flavourings.
The large success of the flake has encouraged us to produce an extrudate in the form of bits (approx. 1.5 × 0.5 mm) now. Again, we are working together with the approved animal food producer Interquell. The bitshave a slightly higher protein- and fat content and are therefore very suitable for growing fish. A real novelty of the extrudate is the addition of a little amount of cocoa. The enclosed product brochure displays the entire the high-quality ingredients to you, as already done before with the flake. The quality criteria apply to both products.”
Different protein supplies (fish meal, krill, spirulina, yeast, etc.) promise good growth. The addition of the colour enhancer Canthaxanthin results in a clearly intensified colouration of the red, yellow, green and blue pigments of your fish.
