Break or cut small portions and thaw in cup, then pour in aquarium. Feed often, but only what can be consumed in three minutes. Remove any uneaten food. Never overfeed. Keep frozen.
Microwaving or thawing in hot water is not recommended, as this breaks down the nutrients contained in frozen fish food.
Silversides, also called spearing, are a natural prey item for larger marine predator fish requiring preys rich in marine proteins and poly-unsaturated fatty acids. Our silversides are packed fresh at time of harvest.
