Ocean Nutrition`s new frozen Trigger Formula is made especially for Trigger fish ( Order Tetradontiformes, family Balistidae). It is a carnivorous diet that contains fresh unprocessed hard-shelled sea urchin, invertebrates and fish.
The special inclusion rate of Sea urchin provides a source of nutrition and unique chemistry of magnesium-rich Calcium Carbonate, that is higher than in corals and important for Triggerfish. It contains natural color enhancing components that also work as an attractant.
Ocean Nutrition`s new frozen Trigger Formula is based on a unique binding gelling system that is marine in nature, with a specific amino acids profile that is highly digestible by fish.
It has a high biological affinity to aquatic animals. It is a unique hydrocolloid system that we have found with a certain concentration, keeps our frozen product from collapsing in the aquarium, but is easily consumed by fish. Because of specific ionic bonds between the ingredients, the flavor of the food is enhanced attracting many different fish species. Melting and gelling temperature of the formula is low, which makes it adventitious for various warm and cold water species.
The product floats and sinks slowly, providing food for fish at different levels. The food is easily consumed without using extra energy in order to break up food for digestion. This increases anabolic-positive energy for better health.
Ocean Nutrition`s new frozen Trigger Formula with the gelling system does not contain synthetic preservatives, and keeps vitamins, fatty and amino acids intact eliminating possibilities of toxicity.
Ocean Nutrition`s frozen gel diets have been designed to maximize the presence of natural unprocessed intact ingredients and minimize the presence of gel binders, the purpose of which is to bind ingredients and add a specific pattern of amino acids that are highly digestible and synergic with aquatic organisms, therefore it is not recommended to thaw or heat our frozen formula diets for feeding, just drop the cube in the aquarium.
