Brightwell Aquatics AngeLixir - Food Soak for Spongivorous Marine Fishes

Brightwell Aquatics AngeLixir - Food Soak for Spongivorous Marine Fishes

• Complex of free-form amino acids in the same ratios found within tissues of sponges.
• Utilizes natural attractants and marine-derived proteins to improve feeding response and increase protein percentage of fish foods, respectively.
• Beneficial to all fishes whose diets are in large part composed of sponges, including angelfishes, butterflyfishes, Moorish Idols, and their respective allies.
• Free-form amino acids:
1. Encourage vibrant coloration.
2. Provide the building blocks of protein in ideal ratios to encourage the formation of new tissue, speeding up growth rates.
3. Encourage new tissue growth to aid in recovery from wounds incurred during aggressive encounters with tankmates or during spawning periods.
• Formulated based upon sponge tissue analysis and marine finfish culture.
• Does not require refrigeration.
• Formulated by a marine scientist.

Technical Background
When placing a fish into an unfamiliar aquarium environment, the first 7 - 10 days can be a critical period: depending on the method of capture and time in transit, and perhaps most importantly the feeding requirements of the species in question, some fish may refuse to eat for several days, during which time their energy reserves are depleted and chances of contracting illness are increased. It is therefore of vital importance to get the fish eating an appropriate food as soon as possible. Some species are more problematic in this regard than others; within the former group, various species of angelfishes, butterflyfishes, and the Moorish Idol are of particular note. AngeLixir improves feeding response and provides important amino
acids in sponge tissue ratios, as well as providing marine proteins to increase the protein concentration in foods (particularly beneficial to fish that have lost body mass). AngeLixir is not meant to be a substitute for proper husbandry, or for making ethical decisions regarding the feasibility of maintaining spongivorous species in captivity; it is, however, an effective means of improving food palatability and nutrition, and increasing the chances of all fish species’ acceptance of unfamiliar foods.

Instructions and Guidelines
AngeLixir is readily absorbed by natural and prepared foods. Shake inner bottle well before each use. To fortify natural frozen foods: Rinse food in a fine-mesh net under running cold tap water until the food has thawed and the solution in which the food was frozen has been discarded. Then, squeeze as much of the excess liquid from the food as possible. Place food in a clean container, such as a small bowl or cup, and add only enough AngeLixir to saturate. Feed after 5 minutes have elapsed. Repeat three - five times daily to ensure that fish are receiving adequate food. To fortify freeze-dried and prepared foods (e.g. pellets): Place food in a clean container such as a small bowl or cup and add only enough AngeLixir to saturate. Feed after 5 minutes have elapsed. Repeat three - five times daily to ensure that fish are receiving adequate food.
It has been our experience that natural foods, such as krill, mysis, and brine shrimp (thoroughly rinsed if frozen) are generally more readily accepted by newly introduced fishes than are most prepared foods, presumably due to familiar chemical and visual cues associated with natural prey items (as opposed to the relative unfamiliarity of prepared foods). If a fish has spent sufficient time in a retailer’s system to become acclimated to feeding on specific types of foods, it is wise to purchase and feed the same foods to increase the chances that the fish will begin eating shortly after introduction to its’ new surroundings. AngeLixir may be used to enhance the nutritional value of, and feeding response to, these foods. Observe water quality at all times, compensating for the increase in dissolved organic material entering the system with each feeding as necessary.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Everything is not so simple on the Internet, a lot of information is misleading, but I was lucky, because now I know about write care plan where any written work is done, I often order written work there and the teacher is also pleased
