Product Information

Bug Bites provides targeted nutrition to your fish, through a sustainable source of Black Soldier Fly Larvae, which is bred on human-grade fruits and vegetables to promote "super food" benefits. The Bug Bites food has excellent amino acid profiles, and is high in natural protein whilst still being low in carbohydrates, so the fish don't fill up unnecessarily. It is designed to be easily digestible and appealing to fish.

Fluval Bug Bites is more than just Black Soldier Fly Larvae though, but also includes other high protein sources such as whole Salmon, providing a rich amount of Omega 3 and 6, to help improve skin, scales, fins and also colours. There is also other essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids to sustain fish health, whilst avoiding any artificial colour or preservatives.

Fluval are proud that Bug Bites is produced in a completely sustainable way, using unconsumed fruits and vegetables, that would otherwise be discarded, to provide nutrition for the Black Soldier Fly. The larvae is dried, and mixed with high quality salmon, amino acids and minerals to complete this nutritional daily diet. Also included are peas, a great natural source of carbohydrates whilst also adding fibre and protein. There is also wheat for natural fibre, and comes in a better form of nutrition than wheat flour or wheat gluten.

    Pellets have irregular shapes and sizes, not a problem, just a feature. My shrimp love them, haven’t spotted the corys having a go yet but I’ve used the Bug Bites tropical pellets before and my other fish love them.
