Practical Fishkeeping (UK) - - LETTERS -

I just wanted to write in and say how much I love us­ing the Bug Bites food from Ha­gen. I used to use a mix of dif­fer­ent flake foods, but on the strength of the re­views you gave it in the magazine, I picked up a few tubs and tried it out on my own fish.

The re­sults have been in­cred­i­ble. I keep and breed south Amer­i­can fish,

mainly Co­ry­do­ras and Apis­togramma, which I have plenty of suc­cess with, but also lots of tetra types that I don’t. since I started us­ing this food, my tetras have been non-stop spawn­ing! I’ve had suc­cess with cof­fee bean tetra, Hyphes­so­brycon taka­sei, ser­pae tetra, H. eques, and even my Phoenix tetra, Hem­i­gram­mus fil­a­men­to­sus, have started lay­ing eggs. I hadn’t had any ac­tiv­ity from these fish at all un­til I tried Bug Bites.

It’s not like me to write a let­ter prais­ing some­thing, but this food has made such an ob­vi­ous dif­fer­ence that I can’t help my­self. other man­u­fac­tur­ers take note – this stuff is amaz­ing! Paul New­som, email

Nathan replies: You’re one of sev­eral peo­ple who have ob­served in­creased spawn­ing after us­ing Bug Bites, Paul! Our own staff writer Steve Baker had his ci­ch­lids get­ting frisky after only a short trial of it. I’ll pass on the good news to Ha­gen!

Diseased fish, dirty tanks, ge­o­graph­i­cal im­posters. Not what we want to see.
