BlackWorms Regular Loose, 1000ml
Australian BlackWorms (BW) are produced in spring water and fed on pure raw materials. Unlike Tubifix, which is primarily produced in Asia in contaminated soil pools with wire mesh over which chickens provide feces as feed for the worms.
Many reputed aquarists have therefore suspected Tubifix of being the cause of unwanted bacteria and heavy metals.
We have been importing Blackworms in bulk in recent years as they are a very popular food among all ornamental fish, but in particular amongst discus. Freeze-dried feed types are distinguished by being able to absorb significant amounts of fluid and therefore provide the fish with additional supplements of Fulvic Acids, Aqua Vitae or antibiotics such as Metronidazole.
BW has a very high protein content of 66.4% and a fat content of 13.9%! This means that fry and juveniles are growing rapidly, whereas adult fish need to be fed moderately.
