Default [Zbrafish] Zebrafish food



Hi Sarah,
Most processed feeds have a shelf-life of about 3-6 months without
any additional preservation depending on the formulation and packaging.
If a product is packaged under nitrogen or vacuum sealed, or contains
extra preservatives the shelf-life may be longer. Refrigeration and/or
freezing food can also extend the shelf-life. Lastly, irradiation can be
used to also extend the shelf-life of a product. If the feed you have at
your facility is 5 years old chances are that it no longer meets the
minimum guarantees on the tag and may be providing inadequate nutrition
for your fish. It is hard to say for sure, but I think it is a safe
guess at this point.

Zeigler Brother's offers an adult Zebrafish diet through Aquatic
Habitats Inc. Please visit

this product. We also offer several larval diets that can be used for
larval zebrafish, also available through Aquatic-Habitats.

If you need additional information, please just let me know.

Best regards,
Ian

The shelf life on processed feeds is generally no more than 3 months, if
they are stored correctly (cool and dry). If you don't store properly,
it is less than that.

There are several processed feeds out there that support good production
for zebrafish, although none have been demonstrated to be nutritionally
complete.

We use Lansy NRD 400-600 pellet by INVE aquaculture. This works best
when used as part of a diet that includes Artemia. It costs
approximately 7-10$/kg.

Chris

Hello,
In my facility we've been feeding Rangen Trout and Salmon starter.
We've been using the same bag that we've kept in the fridge for 5
years. Does anyone use this food and know if it lasts this long? We
are looking to order new food but are looking for other options. Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Sarah
