SL-Aqua Snowflake is the most popular of all the snowflake brands. It supplies a constant source of food for adult and juveniles. It is a great source of protein. We're feeding it as part of our feeding schedule at least once a week. It works great as holiday food in combination with leaf litter.
It is a specially selected growth media for mycelia. Mycelia is the vegetative part of fungi that generates nutritive components such as crude protein, amino acid, crude fat, crude cellulose, and polysaccharide, all of which are important for shrimp growth and well being.
Even though the shrimps are attracted immediately when it is introduced into the tank, it is perfectly normal to have white flakes left over. These "snowflakes" do not pollute water and will serve as a medium for mycelia to grow. As a result, there will be a constant source of food for the shrimps for weeks (depending on the amount dosed and the amount of livestock), thus making it to suitable to be used as a food supplement during holiday periods.
