In addition, Tetra’s food demonstrated a good feed conversion rate which shows how efficiently food is converted by fish. The lower the quotient, the better the feed conversion rate. This means that fish need to be fed less to get all of the nutrients they need, which in turn helps to improve the water quality. The food performance test clearly demonstrated that TetraMin has a considerably lower feed conversion ratio, whereas the values of some of the rival products deviated by over 100%. TetraMin performed extremely well thanks to its top-quality ingredients that are perfectly tailored to the fishes’ needs as well as its successful combination of prebiotics and BioActive formula which helps fish to make optimum use of nutrients.
For its in-house food performance test, Tetra selected four popular species of tropical fish which are illustrative of a large group of tropical fish (as depicted here, red phantom tetras/ Fig. 1 and platies/ Fig. 2).
