Hikari Cichlid Bio-Gold®+ is the world's first daily diet for carnivorous Cichlids containing beneficial living microorganisms. Research, exploration and breeding experience led to the development of this incredible food. It contains "Hikari-Germ" (beneficial microorganisms) that produce visible color enhancement, accelerated growth, reduced waste, and improved water quality. "Hikari-Germ" super-charges the digestive process allowing better utilization of the color enhancing ingredients, while simultaneously utilizing a higher percentage of the natural nutrition in each pellet. "Hikari-Germ" stays active in the water for a short period of time further breaking down waste to a powdery state that is easier for your filtration to handle. Stablilzed Vitamin-C supports immune system health, while promoting a long, healthy life. Floating pellets allow easy monitoring of the amount eaten, which helps eliminate over-feeding while reducing water quality problems.
