Bacter AE is hands down the best shrimp food on the market. As a company, Flip Aquatics has been using Bacter AE for over 5 years and its has drastically helped increase the survival rates of our baby shrimp.
One of the most frequent questions we receive is, “What do you feed your shrimp?”. Although we feed roughly four to six types of foods, Bacter AE is our number one. The reason we feed it more than any other food is this: it works. Bacter AE comes in a white powder form that can be sprinkled directly into the aquarium. It will gradually fall and spread itself throughout the aquarium. By spreading itself around the aquarium, tiny shrimplets can easily feast without worrying about larger shrimp. We have experience a significant increase in shrimplet survival rates after implementing a regular feeding schedule that included Bacter AE. Also, Bacter AE will not pollute the water in an aquarium unless a person exceeds the recommended dosage drastically.
The question remains though, what exactly is Bacter AE? Bacter AE is a micro powder that adds important microorganisms, amino acids and enzymes to an aquarium. It can enhance water quality and improve the development of biofilm, which is essential for shrimp. The biofilm created provides them with a valuable food source rich in beneficial proteins which aids in improving the survival rate of young shrimplets. In addition, live probiotic bacteria in Bacter AE improves the nutrient intake of the shrimp and can influence their digestive processes in a positive way.
The contained bacteria in Bacter AE Micro Powder cultures are activated as soon as they come into contact with water. They remove toxic substances and, together with all the other carefully fine-tuned components, they provide your aquarium with a good microclimate.Ingredients:
This is the first time i have ordered this. I saw nothing but good things on it and it was also recommended. Im sure the shrimps will love it
This is always a hit when I feed it to the tank. I mix 1/4 scoop for a 9 gallon tank with a little water in a shot glass and squirt it with an eye dropper onto moss or other plants. They all start snacking right away. Haven’t had any problems of clouding the water
My shrimp absolutely love it! Highly recommend!
I didn't know I just needed this one simple powder for a healthy shrimp and healthy Aquarium. Mind you I have to use a tip of a toothpick which is enough for a small three to five gallon aquariums which I own. I do not recommend using the whole scoop even with a large aquarium like a 10 or 20 as it can cause danger to the inhabitants. Overall I'm completely satisfied and the shrimp love it.
Thank you for another great purchase.
Works well !
