JBL PRONOVO BEL staple food, the perfect nutrition for all omnivorous fish and fish communities. With a protein/fat ratio of 6.3:1, exactly the right ratio is achieved which is ideal for most tropical fish species. Higher fat contents lead to fatty degeneration in warm water fish’s (23-30 °C) organs! In fish communities, as in most community aquariums, the 15 main ingredients of PRONOVO BEL form a perfect nutritional base that can (not must) be supplemented with species foods to individually adapt and further diversify the diet of fish species. It’s no problem if, for example, your bettas also eat the food for your barbels and vice versa. It is only important that you offer the right food for each group of fish. Variety is always good!
It is really important to choose a food size that fits the mouth size of the fish species. Flakes soften quickly and can be eaten by almost all fish species. It is different with granulate where the smallest mouth size of the fish you keep decides which food size you buy. You’ll find the fish size the food is suitable for written on the bottom left of the tins. It is better to choose a food that is on the small side rather than one that is too large!
About garlic: Fish, of course, are not familiar with garlic from their habitats. But observations we made during the JBL expeditions in the South American Pantanal showed that fish reject underwater plants and prefer to jump out of the water to eat the apparently tastier leaves of the bushes and trees at the water’s edge! These contain more flavour than the “slimy” underwater leaves. This is exactly the effect that adding garlic achieves.
