Soft Line Africa Herbivore M is a soft sinking chip-form food designed for herbivorous and omnivorous African fish.

Herbivorous African fish primarily include Tanganyika cichlids, especially trophs, and numerous species categorized under the mbuna group from Lake Malawi. The term “mbuna” can be translated as “rock-dwelling fish,” perfectly describing their behavior while feeding. While mbuna cichlids are generally considered herbivores, this is a significant oversimplification. In reality, the diet of these cichlids is highly diverse, and when choosing to keep them in an aquarium, it’s crucial to thoroughly research the specific dietary preferences of each species.

The innovative granulated fish food from the Soft Line is eagerly consumed and easily assimilated by aquarium fish. The significant hydrostability of these pellets allows them to maintain their shape in the water, with minimal swelling. The high hydrostability of the food limits the release of nutrients into the aquarium water, preventing cloudiness.

The granules consist of herring, providing excellent amino acid profile protein, crustaceans rich in unsaturated fatty acids and chitin, various species of algae, and larvae of Hermetia illucens insects, delivering a substantial energy boost. Additionally, Soft Line’s soft granules enhance fish immunity through ingredients like natural immunostimulant beta-glucan, garlic, prebiotics from algae, and vitamin C. The Soft Line foods also incorporate the fascinating planktonic crustacean, Calanus finmarchicus, a source of astaxanthin, protein rich in essential amino acids, and unsaturated fatty acids, including Omega-3. Thanks to their soft texture and the richness of ingredients used, Soft Line foods allow for a feeding approach close to natural, ensuring feeding comfort for the aquarium owner.
