Product Description

ULTIMA KRILL is a well balanced, all-purpose, growth and maintenance food. Formulated with an abundance of easily assimilated marine and vegetable proteins,this popular formula is ideal for a wide variety of cichlids. With five separate applications of color promoting ingredients, including spirulina, shrimp and an appetite enhancing krill coating, ULTIMA is especially designed to maximize growth and color. The addition of clay and our unique krill coating provides a high degree of digestibility which translates to less algal growth in your tank. All Dainichi foods contain calcium montmorillonite clay, which simulates the natural ingestion of mineral particles and helps to bind and neutralize metabolic toxins and waste.



ULTIMA KRILLcombines outstanding color, growth, and palatibility and is
especially well suited for omnivorous and carnivorous cichlids of all types.
Featuring four applications of color enhancing ingredients such as two
blends of spirulina, Antarctic krill and shrimp, ULTIMA KRILL offers a
richness of color and sheen. Furthermore, the addition of i
stimulants and digestive enzymes, ensures a high degree of vigor and
As in all Dainichi foods, ULTIMA KRILL contains calcium montmorillonite
clay to simulate the natural ingestion of mineral particles and to bind and
neutralize metabolic toxins. Raw, fully potent vitamins, digestive enzymes
and garlic ensure that the fish are healthy and free of internal parasites.
Furthermore, the scouring action of the clay enhances the
rejuvenation of the digestive tract which when combined
with only two sources of starch (flour as binder and
wheat germ as a source of vitamin E and B) ensures
the maximum rate of digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 4 times daily. Smaller, more frequent feeding are preferred over a single large one. Do not pre-soak the food prior use! Pre-soaking washes out vitamins, color enhancers, other nutrients, and lowers the performance of the food. All Dainichi foods have a low inclusion of starches to prevent excessive swelling in the digestive tract. Pre-soaking of Dainichi cichlid food is absolutely not required nor beneficial!
ULTIMA's high krill, shrimp, and fish meal content is key in promoting exceptional growth in cichlids like this 15 inch male "Burundi" frontosa. The nuchial hump is especially well developed. Also noteworthy is the blue coloration resulting from a post- extrusion encapsulation with raw un-cooked spirulina.   With one of the two applications of spirulina being in its pure raw, uncompromized form, blue hues of cichlids, like this Otopharynx lithobates from Zimbawe Rock, have no trouble maintaining their brightness and intensely. By not being cooked during pellet formation, spirulina maintains 100% of its color potency.
Ultima is an all-around color formula suited for many cichlid types. Besides its blue enhancing properties, Ultima's carotenoid content stemming from spirulina, krill and shrimp, keeps the yellows and other colors vibrant as well.
This five year old frontosa has been primarily on ULTIMA diet for the last four years. The color and physical characteristics clearly attest to this formula's outstanding performance.   High marine protein content and low starch levels provide even slow growing cichlids like this black calvus with all nutrition requirements for rapid growth.
The 1.0 mm sinking or 1.5 mm floating pellets are accepted by Cyp. leptosoma.   Labidochromis hongi readily accept either floating or sinking pellets up to the 3.5 mm (small) size.
The krill, shrimp and two types of spirulina, bring out the maximum color on both adult and two inch long juvenile blue neon peacocks.
