The 4 oz package of San Francisco Bay Brand Frozen Brine Shrimp is a top of the line primary food source designed to provide essential nutrients, vitamins and proteins to the inhabitants of your aquatic ecosystem. Ideal for community aquariums, these nutrient rich brine shrimp are enthusiastically eaten by an incredibly wide variety of freshwater and saltwater tropical fish and invertebrates such as tetras, guppies, mollies, gouramis, cichlids, angels, clownfish, damsels, blennies and many many more. The brine shrimp contain a high level of aquatic proteins and a medium level of aquatic lipids due to their continuous filter-feeding on micro-algae, diatoms and halophilic bacteria. Not only do brine shrimp appearance seem to trigger the feeding behavior of fish, but their high level of amino acids is also thought to act as a natural feeding stimulant. Helps to enhance growth, vibrant colorations and provide fish with a boost of energy.
