TRUE COLORS: FISH FOOD FOR VI­BRANT HUES

Animal Scene - - SCENE ZONE -

On June 28 in Pasay City, Hikari launched a new prod­uct called Vi­bra Bites with fly­ing colors -- pun in­tended. Keita Harada of Hikari In­ter­na­tional talked about the new feed’s care­fully-se­lected in­gre­di­ents and nu­tri­ents meant to bring out the bril­liant color of fish. “We are al­ways se­ri­ous [about] the qual­ity,” said Harada.

The unique worm shape of Vi­bra Bites al­lows it to move with the cur­rent the same way live food does, en­tic­ing fish to in­gest it. Reg­u­lar use of this feed im­proves the color of fish in 20 to 30 days. “I was sur­prised with the re­sults . . . [the color of fish] re­ally de­vel­oped a lot,” said Abet Verches, owner of An­i­mal Pet Shop and Koi­hub. “My farm has been us­ing Hikari for quite some time and we’re very happy with this prod­uct be­cause the koi that we’re grow­ing have vi­brant colors, [in­clud­ing] my tor­toise and tur­tles,” added Jimi Lim, owner of Congo Char­lie and Koi Vil­lage Pet Mall. En­ti­tled Bites, Beats, and Booze, the launch lived up to its name, with drinks and an all-you-caneat buf­fet made avail­able to all guests.
