NatureHolic Mineral Feed is a high quality, organically valuable supplementary feed for shrimp, crayfish, crabs and snails. It contains a special blend of bioavailable organic mineral compounds and is free of low-quality fish meal. We use high quality insect meal instead. NatureHolic Mineral Feed provides all the essential minerals and trace elements that support the molting process and also still promotes growth, egg production, egg quality, blood formation and the immune system.
The gentle cold-pressing production process protects the nutrients and minerals and preserves them almost completely. While competitive products are often composed exclusively of inorganic mineral mixtures, NatureHolic Mineral Feed contains only organic minerals. These can be absorbed and utilized directly by the organism and are therefore immediately available. NatureHolic Mineral Feed contains a balanced mixture of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, which provides the shrimp with everything they need. The insects and crustaceans contained as protein suppliers not only ensure a high level of acceptance , they also provide wit nutritiously valuable protein and the molting hormone ecdysone as well as important cholesterol, which the shrimp need for a smooth molt.
Shrimps, crabs and shrimp need minerals and trace elements to build up their new skin and to get through the molting process without damage. Minerals and trace elements are also indispensable for growth, egg production and quality, blood formation and a well-functioning immune system, and their importance cannot be overestimated. Therefore, it makes sense to feed the crustaceans with NatureHolic Mineral Feed two to three times a week targeted minerals and high quality protein.
Not only shrimp, crayfish and crabs depend on a regular supply of minerals, but also snails need minerals and trace elements for their metabolism, their immune system, the egg formation and especially for the structure of their shell, which they – unlike shrimp – absorb not only from food, but also from the water. They need an extra portion of minerals and trace elements in their food especially if they live in an aquarium where the pH is below 7 and the total hardness below 10, for example in a typical soft water aquarium for bee or Taiwanese shrimp.
Snails also have a very difficult time in brine tanks, as the brine soil continuously breaks down the carbonate compounds they need. In particular, the high calcium content of Mineral Feed helps the snails to build their shells.
Feeding recommendation: feed 1-2 times a week as much as the animals will consume in a few minutes. Feed sparingly, usually one 5mm pad is sufficient for 15-25 shrimp. Store in a cool and dry place, no refrigerator required. Not for human consumption. Keep away from children.
