Buy Fish Food Online & Delight Your Fish!


Aquarium fish require a varied diet of high quality fish food to stay healthy and nourished. But what do fish eat in aquariums? It’s important to know what specific fish foods are best for your fish, as some need veggies while others require meat to survive. The good news is that Aquarium Kingdom’s online store offers several varieties of fish food specifically designed to suit the needs of your aquarium fish.


What Food Should I Be Feeding My Fish?


When you order fish food online, you’ll find a surprisingly wide range of options. Fish food can come in dried, freeze-dried or frozen varieties. When you’re selecting your fish food, all you really need to know is which type is the most suitable for your species of fish. If necessary, you can also find species-specific varieties, such as cichlid fish food. But did you also know that the age of your fish can affect the food they need? That's why baby fish food exists — this specialised type of fish food has all the necessary nutrients required to help young fish grow healthy and strong. Besides this, your fish’s food of choice will simply depend upon the species and size of your fish.


Dried Fish Food


The most popular types of fish food are the dried fish food varieties, which includes flakes, crisps, pellets, granules and wafers. The great thing about these dried varieties is that you can buy bulk fish food which, if stored properly, can last for years. These varieties are to be used according to the kind of aquarium fish you have. Surface feeders, such as smaller goldfish and guppies, usually prefer flakes as they tend to stay floating at the top of the tank. Aqua One fish food flakes are also available in vegetable options for fish who prefer veggies.


Want something that dissolves a bit slower than flakes? Crisps can be a good option as they are denser and retain their shape and nutrients longer, making them great for top and mid-level feeders. Conveniently, pellets come in floating or sinking varieties depending on which part of the tank your fish prefer to swim. Floating pellets are relatively more buoyant, which makes them a great option for betta fish food as these fish tend to linger at the surface. A slow-sinking granule will do perfectly for mid-water feeders, like tetras and barbs. If you need fish food for bottom feeders, such as clown loaches and catfish, it is important to find a variety of sinking food that will reach the bottom of the tank. Fast-sinking pellets or algae wafers are both great choices for these fish.


Freeze-Dried Fish Food


Freeze-dried fish foods are usually live foods, such as blackworms, Tubifex worms and brine shrimp, that have been freeze dried. These keep for a long time and make for a nice treat. Freeze-dried bloodworms are a popular betta fish food, while your goldfish may enjoy some freeze-dried shrimp food.


Frozen Fish Food


These days, there is a large selection of frozen fish foods available in the freezer section of your local aquarium store. The most common of these foods are bloodworms and brine shrimp that have been frozen whole. You can also buy frozen fish dinners to suit most freshwater and marine fish varieties.


Vacation Blocks & Automatic Fish Food Feeders


Having fish is great and all, but who’s going to feed them when you’re away on holiday? Never fear, for we have a selection of vacation feeding blocks to choose from. These disintegrate slowly over time to ensure that your fish are fed for up to 14 days. However, if you go away for longer periods of time or have a fish tank in the office, an automatic fish food feeder is the best way to ensure your fish are fed at the right time every day. These feeders eliminate any extra work and food wasting, quite the handy option.


Of course, choosing the right fish food to purchase online is only half the struggle. You then have to think about things like the amount of food you need to feed your aquarium fish. To answer this question, ensuring that your fish are in optimum health means feeding them in small increments. Rather than giving your fish one big feed each day, give them small amounts of food that they can eat within a minute a few times throughout the day.
