Shrimp Dinner

Complete food (main food) for ornamental shrimp

Shrimp Dinner is a well-balanced daily main food for your ornamental shrimp containing all the important nutrients, vital substances and natural vitamins they need for healthy development, successful moults, growth, brilliant colours and high reproductive rates. Our special recipe and the way we manufacture our shrimp foods guarantee that your shrimp still find this food tasty even after some time in the water, it is thus completely eaten. The ingredients of Shrimp Dinner are 100% natural.

Chlorella algae, protein extracts of vegetable origin, squid, fennel, yeast extract, Asian cabbage, amino acids, algae extracts, lecithin, mustard seed
Analytical Constituents 33.1% crude protein, 2.3% crude fat, 8.3% raw fibre, 8.9% crude ash, 6.9% moisture Feeding recommendation

Pads • 1-2 x a day 1 pad per approx. 25 shrimp Gran • 1-2 x a day approx. 1 granule per shrimp
We recommend with renewed feeding to wait until the pads / granules of the previous feeding were completely eaten. Contents and their effects

Chlorella algae The unicellular freshwater alga Chlorella vulgaris is an excellent nutrient carrier for shrimps. Even though it is costlier than Spirulina algae it has won out over the latter due to its beneficial properties. Many successful breeders have been feeding Chlorella algae for years. The following analysis shows the wide range of essential nutrients contained in these algae that shrimp need to stay vital, colorful and productive. Nutritional value Minerals and trace elements Carotenoids and chlorophyll water 3 - 5 g / 100 g potassium 1000 - 2300 mg / 100 g carotenoids 50 - 200 mg / 100 g minerals 6 - 9 g / 100 g magnesium 300 - 460 mg / 100 g lutein 70 - 120 mg / 100 g protein 45 - 55 g / 100 g calcium 250 - 600 mg / 100 g chlorophyll 2.5 - 4.5 g / 100 g carbohydrates 30 - 35 g / 100 g iron 50 - 260 mg / 100 g fibre 15 - 26 g / 100 g manganese 3 - 10 mg / 100 g fats 8 - 13 g / 100 g zinc 5 - 15 mg / 100 g calorific value 1350 - 1500 kJ / 100 g copper 1 - 3 mg / 100 g iodine < 70 µg / 100 g Vitamins (excerpt) unsaturated fatty acids (excerpt) Amino acids vitamin B12 100 - 260 µg / 100 g oleic acid 350 - 650 mg / 100 g The range of amino acids comprises all proteinogenic amino acids, including all essential amino acids vitamin K 0.3 - 0.5 mg / 100 g linoleic acid 1100 - 2300 mg / 100 g vitamin E 8 - 11 mg / 100 g alpha-linoleic acid 1550 - 3200 mg / 100 g vitamin C 10 - 30 mg / 100 g
Additional value of Chlorella algae Besides their impressive nutritional value, Chlorella algae also have further positive functional characteristics like e.g. their ability to bind toxic substances/heavy metals, which can then be excreted through the intestine easily and quickly. Especially invertebrates like our ornamental shrimps, which do not have a liver, can run into severe problems when toxic substances accumulate in their system. Chlorella algae contain chelating agents, i.e. they form complexes with toxic substances/heavy metals through adsorption, which are thus prevented from accumulating in the body.
Squid Snails and other molluscs belong to the natural food range of shrimps in the wild. They provide a great source of vital proteins and amino acids, but first and foremost, molluscs contain glucosamine (an amino sugar). Crustaceans require this substance for the formation of their exoskeleton. We have chosen squid as a source of these essential nutrients for our shrimp food recipe.
Fennel Fennel is globally used as vegetable, condiment or medicinal plant. Even in ancient Chinese medicine, fennel was held in high esteem. It has also proven its value as a shrimp food ingredient. Fennel contains a great amount of secondary plant substances, which have a very positive effect on shrimps.
Fennel contains the essential oils anethole and fenchone, bergapten, boron, camphor, carvon, chamazulene, citral, citronella, coumarin, eugenol, flavonoids, fumaric acid, caffeic acid, limonene, linalool, linoleic acid, myristicin, psoralene, salicylate, thymol, tocopherol, trigonelline, umbelliferone, xanthotoxin, vitamin C Fennel is also very rich in highly available minerals.
Asian cabbage varieties For Shrimp Dinner, we only use the most favorite cabbage varieties used by Japanese shrimpkeepers and -breeders. Their content of vitamins, proteins, amino acids, minerals and secondary plant substances is far above average, which makes these cabbages so popular in Japan. They contain more vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K, more folic acid, calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron as well as more omega-3 fatty acids and fibres than other vegetables, antioxidative secondary plant substances as well as high levels of chlorophyll.
Amino acids Amino acids are the basic components of life itself. Only 22 amino acids are necessary to form around 100,000 different proteins. Protein is one of the main components of a shrimp's body, with around 20% of the total body weight. Amino acids are necessary for the formation of proteins. They are not only used for building muscle tissue, organs, cells, for repairing tissues and so on, but they also form antibodies against bacteria and viruses. Moreover, they are a part of the enzymatic and the hormonal system, form the nucleoproteins (RNA and DNA) and transport oxygen through the body.
Lecithin One of the substances necessary for a functioning nervous system (ganglia) is phosphatidylcholine, better known as lecithin. Lecithin belongs to the group of phospholipids, which are an important component of cell membranes, amongst others those of nerve cells. Phospholipds are not only mecessary for transporting ions through the cell membranes, but also isolate the dendrites (or nerve endings), thus making sure nerve impulses are transmitted securely. A shrimp transforms lecithin into acetylcholine, the most important neurostransmitter of the nervous system.
Mustard seed The most important active substance contained in mustard seed is mustard oil. This oil only forms after a chemical process that takes place when the mustard seed is ground and then mixed with water. The sinalbin and the sinigrin that form during this process give mustard its keenness and have an appetising effect. These secondary plant substances also further digestion and are efficient against bacteria.

Shrimp Dinner is available in a 35g or 70g box each as Pads or Gran.

Shrimp Baby Food

Complete food (breeding food) for ornamental shrimp

Shrimp Baby Food is a powdered rearing food for ornamental shrimp that is rich in protein, containing zooplankton, natural vitamins, minerals and high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, providing young shrimp with everything they need for healthy growth and delivering sufficient power and energy. The content of 300 ppm astaxanthin forms especially in red, yellow and orange shrimp, the color pigments cells from the beginning good, so they may show up in a blaze of color.
Newly hatched shrimp larvae need an ample range of different nutrients after their first molt (after hatching until the first molt they do not eat anything as they get their nutrients from their yolk sac).
Shrimp Baby Food contains all essential proteins and amino acids that are so important for healthy growth. Highly digestible carbohydrates and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) deliver the necessary energy for molting. Carefully chosen algae, vegetables and herbs supply the baby shrimps with micronutrients. Green-lipped mussels are well-known for their high content of glykosaminoglykans, which form a very valuable component of the shrimp carapace. The multivitamin mixture we have also added provides your shrimps with all the vitamins they need and prevents deficiencies. Vital minerals and trace elements are provided by a concentrate of red coralline algae containing over 50 different minerals and trace elements.
Shrimp Baby Food is a full extrudate. This manufacturing method guarantees high digestibility. All the nutrients contained in this food are highly bioavailable. The powdery micro granules form a fine filmlike layer on all the surfaces in the tank. This is necessary as baby shrimp are quite sessile in the beginning, which means that they usually remain in the place where they hatched and that the food has to come to them. If it doesn't, they risk starvation.
Shrimp Baby Food has been manufactured with the utmost care, it is a fully extruded and 100% conglomerated powdered food. Contains 300 ppm of astaxanthin for more brilliant colours.

Shrimp King Baby

Rearing food
Micro-granules for daily feeding. Specially adapted to the nutritional needs and feeding habits of shrimp larvae. For all larval stages. For healthy growth and problem-free moulting.
Shrimp King Baby is a special food that will sink, consisting of 100% natural ingredients for species-specific nutrition and rearing of freshwater shrimps. Made up of over 20 carefully selected ingredients, variety is already built into each granule. Shrimp King Baby ensures healthy, balanced growth thanks to its high-quality proteins and amino acids as well as essential fatty acids from aquatic animals. The vegetarian component of the food, which is so important for a balanced diet, takes the form of high-quality ingredients such as stinging nettles, walnut leaves, birch leaves, gingko leaves, pumpkin, birch bark, lapacho bark and barley grass. Vegetables such as spinach, fennel, dandelion, herbs such as rosemary and aronia berries and flower pollen supply valuable minerals, trace elements, vitamins and phytochemicals. Natural carotinoids promote the development of full species-specific colouring, especially for yellow, orange and red coloured animals. Shrimp King Baby ensures problem-free moulting and strengthens the body's defences.
After hatching, baby shrimps often remain where they were born for several days, and while they are there, there is not enough food available so they can quickly starve. Shrimp King Baby is therefore formulated as micro-granules with a grain size of approx. 1 mm. The micro-granules are (a) water-stable and (b) do not vanish into the substrate or filter like dust food. This means the food prevents unnecessary water pollution and does not turn the water cloudy. Shrimp King Baby is ideal for daily feeding and suitable for all larval stages, especially for the first sensitive weeks.
Content: 30g
Guarantee: no artificial colourings or preservatives, no fish meal.
Feeding recommendation As much as the shrimps eat within one hour, once or twice a day. Distribute the food evenly around the aquarium. Remove food residues after 6 hours. Tip: to make the micro-granules sink more quickly in the aquarium, add the amount of food needed to a glass of water, swirl it around a few times and then pour it into the tank spreading it over a large area.
Tip: Shrimp King Baby is also suitable for rearing different species of crayfish, dwarf crayfish (CPOs) and crabs.
