Foods designed for Large Fish & Carnivores.

This major category within the very extensive range of V2O AQUARIUM FOODS includes frozen products intended to feed the larger aquarium fish which we define as 3 to 4 inches in length or more. These may be some of the large specimens in a reef aquarium or the fish which normally are used in a "fish-only" aquarium. These fish are often "predatory" in nature with large or strong teeth for "munching" (triggerfish and parrotfish) or large mouths for gulping and devouring like groupers, lionfish, and moray eels.

Along with the larger fish, these aquariums may also have predatory or scavenging crustaceans such as crabs, lobster, shrimps, and mantis shrimp. These critters are perfectly adapted to this same category of foods and when everybody in the tank is finished eating, the scavengers will keep up their end of the deal and clean up all the un-eaten pieces of food on the bottom until the tank is "squeaky" clean….or close to it anyway.

The foods in this category include the very popular Krill Superba which we produce in an IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) form as well as the standard flatpack. The Krill Pacifica is a smaller species, around 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch, but just as valuable as the larger Krill Superba for protein, Omega 3 fatty acids, and valuable pigments. Our krill are un-cooked which makes them fresher and more natural and nutritious than the standard "blanched" krill.

We also have the Silversides IQF (Individually Quick Frozen) for ease and convenience of feeding. These "silversides" are actually anchovies which are very rich in fish oils and flavor - the perfect food for Moray Eels and other predator fish. To complete this category, we produce Clams, Mussels, and Scallops - all on the HALF-SHELL. The meat is still attached to the shell and this creates a very natural feeding behavior for the fish to hover around and pick their food bit by bit until the shell is entirely cleaned.

NO OTHER COMPANY provides this variety of foods for so many varieties of fish and invertebrates!

Mussels on the Half-Shell

The “Half-Shell” products from V2O are the ultimate in natural foods for marine (or freshwater) aquarium fish! These bivalves are shocked with the raw, fresh meaty parts still attached to one-half of the shell. As the product settles on the bottom aquarium substrate, the fish will hover around and pick at the meat, bit by bit, in a frenzy of natural feeding behavior until food is consumed. Some fish will even munch on the shell which can grind down teeth and aid in digestive function. The Mussel product is the strongest flavor of the 3 half-shell products. Your fish will go nuts! No other frozen food manufacturer supplies this unique product.
