Golden Pearl Diets - Imported from the USA.

A specialised feed proving very popular in the USA. Used in hatcheries with marine & freshwater fish & shrimps.
Micro encapsulated granules with tiny air particles. These granules mimic Artemia (Brine Shrimp) & are used to replace this
diet in up to 80% of feeds.
Highly palatable & digestible.
Range of granule sizes from 5 micron fry feed (suitable for egglayers) up to 1mm+.
Tests in our fish house on imported fish have been amazing. Wild Tetra's really appreciate it floating in the water column.
TA have imported this diet for many years. Beware of another GP diet which is yellow.
This is a shrimp maturation diet & no good for fish fry.

800-1000 grade - magnified - note the tiny air bubbles on the granules.

Calvin from Oxfordshire says - 'I also mix a little of the brilliant GP food in when I mix up the frozen foods for them and they are still chasing it around long after the
frozen stuff has gone.It really does sit in the water and resemble baby brine shrimp! I only bought it because someone on a US forum said how good it was.
I think you are the only person to sell it in the UK'.

This food is fantastic. We use it extensively...
The smallest size fry food for tiny fry.

High attractant quality to this powder. Used in commercial hatcheries (marine & freshwater). A specialist food as these diets stay bouyant in the water column. An ideal food for marine inverts as it mimics plankton.
It is also a useful food for freshwater fish.

I feed this to egglayer fry. I obtained some new Danio sp. & the Rainbow - Melanotaenia parkinsoni. I was only holding them for a few days but they both dropped eggs. As I'm geared up to fry which take newly hatched brine shrimp I had to find a suitable food fast.
Normally I would use Interpet Liquifry but I had none handy so I used this powder by putting some in a bottle top with a little water & stirred it up into a cloudy suspension.
Under a magnifying glass I could see the small fry taking it up. Definately in my list of foods I feed in the fish house.
A little goes a long way & this works out cheap.
