  • Mazuri® Herbivore Aquatic Gel Diet (no corn) is designed to be an essential part of a total feeding system.
  • Feed intake will vary based on age, body size and reproductive status.
  • Prepared Mazuri® Herbivore Aquatic Gel Diet (no corn) can be fed at a rate of up to 50% of the animals’ diet to provide optimal nutrition. Never feed dry powder without first combining with water.
    1. Mix, by weight, 75% boiling (>180°F) water to 25% Mazuri® Herbivore Aquatic Gel Diet (no corn). Adjust mixture to meet desired texture and need.
    2. Mix thoroughly with a spoon, fork or whisk for one minute, then pour into a shallow pan and allow to cool.
    3. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into pieces appropriately sized for the animals being fed.
    4. Feed to herbivorous fish.
Storage Conditions
Mazuri® Gel Diets have a 1 year shelf life in the dry powder form when stored in a dry environment. For best results, tightly affix lid on canister after removal of desired dosage or store contents of open bag in container with sealing lid.  Store in a cool (75°F or colder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location. The mixed product should be stored under refrigeration for no longer than 7 days or frozen for up to 1 month. It is recommended that frozen batches be individually sealed in amount of usage, as repeated entry into the container exposes gel to oxygen. Once this product is mixed with water to form a gel, it should be handled like raw fish.
