Along with the larger fish, these aquariums may also have predatory or scavenging crustaceans such as crabs, lobster, shrimps, and mantis shrimp.
These critters are perfectly adapted to this same category of foods and when everybody in the tank is finished eating, the scavengers will keep up their end of the deal and clean up all the un-eaten pieces of food on the bottom until the tank is “squeaky” clean….or close to it anyway.
The foods in this category include the very popular Krill superba which we produce in an IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) form as well as the standard flatpack. The Krill pacifica is a smaller species, around 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch, but just as valuable as the larger Krill superba for protein, Omega 3 fatty acids, and valuable pigments.
Our krill are un-cooked which makes them fresher and more natural and nutritious than the standard “blanched” krill. We also have the Silversides IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) for ease and convenience of feeding. These “silversides” are actually anchovies which are very rich in fish oils and flavor – the perfect food for Moray Eels and other predator fish. To complete this category, we produce Clams, Mussels, and Scallops – all on the HALF-SHELL. The meat is still attached to the shell and this creates a very natural feeding behavior for the fish to hover around and pick their food bit by bit until until the shell is entirely cleaned.
