What are frozen food and how they feed the fish

How to feed the fish frozen food? Before answering this question, you need to know what are frozen live food?

What aquatic organisms are suitable for freezing, and which are not? And when buying frozen food, be able to determine its freshness and suitability for feeding to fish.

Why is this so important?

The fact is that employees of pet stores are usually not aquarists and you absolutely buy them from sick or healthy fish, as well as high-quality or low-quality feeds. Therefore, in order not to throw money down the drain, and also not to spoil the water and not undermine the health of your fish, you need to have some knowledge.

For what live food is frozen at all? Live food is frozen in order to preserve the nutritional value and essential amino acids, which are so important for the body of fish.

But that is not all!

When they feed frozen live food to fish, they instinctively feel that this food is intended for them by nature and is happy to eat it. And the better the frozen food, the more it will be useful and enjoy the fish.

Frozen live food is significantly inferior to live non-frozen food, but frozen food is always better than dry or artificial.

Frozen feeds have several undeniable advantages:

  • – shock freezing of natural raw materials allows preserving the natural concentration of nutrients in the feed, which provides the feed with high nutritional value and good digestibility;
  • – frozen food with proper storage retains its nutritional qualities for a very long time, about a year, thereby allowing to diversify the nutrition of aquarium fish year-round. Live foods are available only in certain seasons;
  • – deep freezing kills almost all the bacteria causing the fish, but dried under the sun and live food is the cause of infection in the aquarium;
  • – Frozen feeds are available in a large assortment and allow you to choose the appropriate feed to meet the nutritional needs of any kind of fish.

Table of approximate correspondence of different types of frozen food to different types of aquarium fish:

When mass catching of live feeds, they can be prepared for quite a long time using freezing. All feed objects are suitable for freezing, provided that they are suitable for aquarium fish feed.

Of the most famous live feeds for freezing, they are: the larva of the Perestos mosquito, the corelet, the larva of the bell ringing mosquito, the bloodworm, the mosquito larva, the kuleks (“devil”), etc. Cyclops are among copepods, and among branchy daphnia Magna, Moin, ceriodaphnia, and others.

It is worse suited for freezing pipemaker (a type of malleech worms of the Tubificidae family). After freezing, the gentle tubeworm worms lose their original appearance and turn into a mushy mass.

It is very easy to dilute ciliates and rotifers at home, so there is no need to freeze such feed objects.
