Why Fish Need A Varied Diet

Not only does a varied diet keep a fish happy but it also keeps them healthy. Depending on the fish you have will tell you what types of food you should feed your fish.

Besides the normal fish flakes that a fish gets, there are other great food choices out on the market that will help keep your fish thriving.

An excellent example of a fish that needs a varied diet is the plecostomus, A.K.A pleco. Although they are known to be "algae eaters", most species of pleco are omnivores; They require other things besides algae for their diet.

When buying one of these guys, you need to give them some algae wafers and some other "meaty" product such as Freeze Dried Bloodworms or Freeze Dried Tubifex Worms. Not only do they need this stuff but they enjoy it too!

So if you are looking to keep your fish healthy, do a little research and find the foods that your fish need then check out the new HowToCareForFish Store for some great bargains on those products.

If there is something that you are looking for and I don't have it listed, please let me know and I can put it up on the site for you.
