What Kinds Of Fish Need Fishalicious Food
Frozen krill, shrimp, and bloodworms benefit many types of fish, including (but not limited to):
If your fish is carnivorous or omnivorous, they need frozen food to (at least) supplement their diet.
All our fish food is from its natural source – Vancouver Island, Antarctica, and China.
Krill is perfect to use as your fish’s main food. Not only does it drastically improve the colours of your fish, but it also pairs wonderfully with our supplementary fish food (although Krill can also supplement a flake/pellet diet).
The 2 types of Krill we sell:
- Superba – Harvested in Antarctica
- Pacifica – Harvested in Vancouver Island
The main difference between the 2 is the size of them. Superba Krill are the size of a small shrimp. Pacifica is the size of a very small worm.
Both kinds of shrimp we sell are harvested off China’s coast.
Shrimp isn’t meant to be the only thing in your fish’s diet. They’re so packed with protein that it’s very easy to overfeed your fish with them.
The 2 kinds of Shrimp we sell:
- Brine – think of Brine Shrimp as ‘cookies’ for your fish. They’re a nice treat that’s not too indulgent.
- Mysis – the ‘cheesecake’ shrimp! Richer than cookies, but delicious in small quantities. A lovely ‘dessert’ for your fish. Plus, Mysis Shrimp aids in the enhancement of your fish’s colour.
Bloodworms are a nice snack for your fish. They aren’t as protein dense as Brine or Mysis Shrimp, but they’re an excellent supplement.
It’s best to feed your fish all 5 of our products. Think what your fish would eat out in nature – a variety of different:
Feeding your fish a variety gives them a rich diet they can thrive off of.

Your Fishalicious Feeding Process
Feeding your fish our product is super simple. Follow this guide:
Take a chunk of food (either you break it off a slab or take a cube, depending on the product size you have) and place it in the tank.
1 cube too big? Break it up into smaller pieces (you may have to thaw the cube to do so).
Watch as your fish attack (I mean…eat) the food. It thaws as they devour.
If the food is gone in less than 3 minutes, add a bit more until they slow down their dining frenzy (don’t feed longer than 3 minutes, however. You can end up overfeeding).
Repeat 2-3 times a day, depending on your fish. If they still devour the food after 3 minutes of feeding, you need to feed them again a little later.
You might be wondering if frozen food is worth it. I mean, the flakes seem to be fine. Your fish is alive, right?
Well, frozen fish food not only gives your fish a rich diet that mirrors the diet they’d have in the wild, but it also gives them:
- Sharp, vibrant colours
- Accelerated growth
- Better breeding
- Longer lifespan
- Less health problems
Let’s compare pets for a moment.
Your family dog gets fairly decent food. Even if you feed them average quality kibbles, you’re looking at roughly $40 a bag.
$20 of frozen fish food not only lasts longer than that $40 bag of doggie food, but is as premium as you can get when it comes to fish diets.
