Dennerle Pleco Menu Herbivore is a basic food for catfish that eat algae and plants, especially plecos such as Ancistrus, Peckoltia, Glyptoperichthys, Baryancistrus and Hypancistrus. Containing natural foliage (15% fibre, just like in nature, and as a high-quality source of lignin), vitamin-rich vegetables and algae (20%), crustaceans, insect larvae and fly larvae (10% total). Catfish will happily scrape away at the discs, which are around 15 mm in diameter, just as they would eat in their natural habitat.
Dennerle is taking a brand new approach in feeding aquarium fish. That’s why Dennerle are committed to not adding any fish meal at all to their ornamental fish food during the manufacturing process! Fish meal and other cheap fillers are often added to industrially produced ornamental fish food, the recipes for which are frequently taken from industrial fish farming. Ist aim is a purely economic one: fast growth using minimal materials. Balanced nutrition tends to play a lesser role. In addition to avoiding preservatives, the new fish food is based on the Dennerle biotic system: a combination of prebiotics and probiotics with beta-glucan to regulate digestion and activate the immune system. Once again, Dennerle is a pioneer in this field, given that ornamental fish food has never before contained any probiotic lactic acid cultures. The effects of these new lactic acid bacteria are scientifically proven. They improve the intestinal flora, reduce undesirable germs and regulate digestion for less water pollution. The unique combination of ingredients in this innovative food supports these effects.
Feeding recommendation Dennerle Pleco Menu Herbivore:
Feed as much as the fish eat within one hour, once a day. Feed nocturnal catfish in the evening.
