DAFNIA sun-dried Daphnia pulex. Daphnia pulex are small freshwater crustaceans of the order Cladocera. They are the main dietary component of many species of fish in the wild. Dried, easily applicable Daphnia pulex provide fish with many essential macro nutrients and trace elements. But above all, they are the source of chitin – roughage substance, which regulates digestive processes, protecting fish against dangerous consequences of constipations. For this reason Daphnia pulex are an important component of carnivorous and omnivorous fish’s diet. To fully satisfy fish’s demand for protein, fats and vitamins, DAFNIA should be used together with complete foods for ornamental fish such as ICHTIO-VIT, OVO-VIT, SUPERVIT, VITALITY & COLOR.
