Diets deficient in omega-3 fatty acids can promote head and lateral line erosion (HLLE) syndrome in freshwater and marine fishes. Zoecon provides essential marine omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Enriches foods for saltwater and freshwater fishes. Contains shark liver oil, which contains natural immune system stimulants. Useful in raising fish and invertebrate larvae, as well as fortifying live food for juvenile and adult fishes and invertebrates. Phosphate and nitrate free, and contains no yeast or sugars!
Shake well before using. To use as a food soak, in a small container add 1 drop (0.5 ml) Zoecon and 4 drops (2 ml) Zoe to dry or frozen food, and soak for 5-10 minutes. Then add the contents of the container to the aquarium. When raising brine shrimp and other live aquatic foods, add 2 drops (1 ml) Zoecon and 8 drops (4 ml) Zoe per liter water to the rearing container, and allow 12-16 hours for maximum nutritional enrichment. To benefit invertebrates, Zoecon can also be added directly to an aquarium at the dosage of 1 drop per 50 gallons water daily.
Considerations for use:
Kent Zoecon is a properly preserved food enrichment product designed to provide freshwater and saltwater fishes with essential marine lipids and the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Zoecon will benefit fishes that have a diet deficient in lipids, and in which signs of head and lateral line erosion are present (pitting of the skin in the facial region and lateral line). Using Zoecon as a food soak and fortifier of live foods increases the portion of lipids and highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA’s) in the fish’s diet. Also, the addition of deepwater shark liver oil containing alcoxyglycerols enhances fishes’ immune systems, and is useful in treating fish with injuries caused by rough handling and fighting with other aquarium inhabitants. Regular use of Zoecon can help prevent nutritional imbalances in fishes and invertebrates (both passive filter-feeders and active foragers). When used in conjunction with Kent Zoe Freshwater or Zoe Marine, fishes and invertebrates are provided with sources of marine lipids, omega-3 fatty acids, bio-available vitamins, and minerals.
Deionized water, marine lipids, ascorbic acid, thiamine, niacin, tocopherol, vitamin B12.
