Fish Feeding FAQs
Answers to the questions most commonly asked about our Fit & Wild Food Range
No, Fit & Wild is expertly formulated to provide your fish with the daily complete nutrition they need to be fit and healthy.
Yes! The food pots and lids are made from polypropylene (PP) and the seal is made from foil. Both are recyclable. Many local authorities will accept these in their “kerb side recycling” – check with your local authority.
Salmon oil is used in Fit & Wild for many reasons such as providing important omega 3 fatty acids – EPA and DHA. We make sure our salmon oil is sourced as a by-product from the farmed salmon filleting industry to ensure no fish are directly taken from the ocean to produce Fit & Wild food.
More fish are overfed than underfed so be careful not to feed too much.
For flakes, feed 2-3 flakes per fish, 2-3 times a day – approximately enough for 2 minutes of feeding. Crush larger flakes to suit fish size.
For pellet, feed as much as fish will eat in 2 minutes, 2-3 times a day.
For wafers, feed as much as your fish will eat in 2 hours.
Always remember to remove uneaten food with a net.
Occasionally, fish that are used to the taste of their current food, may take a few feeds to recognise the taste and texture of Fit & Wild. Try feeding ¼ Fit & Wild with ¾ of the current food and gradually increase the ratio of Fit & Wild over a few days to give your fish time to get used to it.
