 Mostly  dried  marine  fish  mixed  with  other  additives  including  growth  inducing  hormones  -  which  may  not  only  be  dangerous  for  humans  -  but  for  aquarium  fish  as  well.

 Basically  the  same  thing  you  feed  your  fish,  purchased  in  bulk  without  any  brand  names.

 The  attached  picture  is  of  the  food  that  is  fed  to  the  shrimp  in  the  export  oriented  aquaculture  farms  of  coastal  Karnataka.
 I  had  brought  it  to  feed  the  shrimp  in  my  aquariums  but  my  fish  especially  the  rainbows  go  crazy  and  do  not  allow  a  single  pellet  to  reach  the  bottom.
 For  the  fry  and  small  fish  I  powder  and  crush  the  pellets.   
 These  are  sinking  pellets  and  no  doubt  they  are  made  for  fast  growth  in  order  for  the  farms  to  post  quick  profits.
 Looks  like  a  major  component  is  dried  fish  since  it  smells  like  dried  fish.  Other  additions  I  cannot  say  and  can  only  guess.  Smile

 Hi  Trevor,
 Could  you  give  me  the  contact  number  of  people  who  deal  in  this  type  of  feed?I  think  it  must  be  from  Mangalore.
 with  warm  regards

 In  Bangkok,  most  of  the  fish  farms  use  Beef  Heart,  Live  Blood  Worms  &  Some  Pellets.
 
 Trevor,  
 It  will  be  much  helpfull  for  me  also  if  you  could  give  the  contact  details  of  the  person  who  deals  in  that  pellets.
 
 
 Thanx  in  advance

 Rocky
 In  Kolkata  try  Kolay  Market.  Another  stuff  fish  in  aquarium  love  are  ant  eggs  (used  by  anglers  as  bait).  You  can  get  them  in  any  bazaar  in  the  outskirts  regions  like  Garia,  Behala  etc.  But  you  have  to  chop  them  up  into  fine  pieces  and  physically  get  rid  of  the  half  born  and  crawling  ants.

 Shishir,
 This  stuff  is  from  Kumta  and  is  our  Nayak's  wifes  home  town.
 So  every  time  she  goes  to  visit  her  parents  she  gets  us  some.  
 Possible  one  of  the  reasons  why  Nayak  is  so  sporting  when  his  wife  demands  to  see  her  parents.  
 Non-iodised  rock  salt  is  also  available  in  plenty  there.
 I  will  courier  some  feed  to  you  if  you  want  to  try  it  out.
 PM  me  your  address.

 we  use  it  by  the  kilos  in  our  shrimp  farms.  It  definitely  is  a  sinking  type  pellet  but  is  very  rich  in  protein  content  so  can  play  havoc  with  the  bio-load.
 The  feed  we  use  is  made  by  a  Thailand  based  company  known  as  CP.  They  are  also  into  the  manufacture  of  fish  feeds..........the  Osaka  pellets  that  you  normally  see  at  the  LFS  are  manufactured  by  CP.
 I  personally  don't  use  any  shrimp  feeds  for  fish  instead  for  my  fish  I  use  feeds  that  are  specifically  manufactured  for  'fish'  attached  herewith  is  a  picture  of  what  I  use.

 Hi  Nauzer,
 Is  it  true  that  these  feed  contain  about  65%  protein?Would  it  be  right  to  feed  Juvenile  fish  which  would  help  for  rapid  growth.Like  Trevor  has  said  in  his  earlier  post  that  this  could  be  one  of  the  reason  for  faster  growth  and  hence  higher  profits  for  the  fish  farms.
 with  warm  regards

 I  never  believe  all  that  I  read   Smile  
 Yes,  high  protein  does  result  in  a  faster  growth  but,  also  a  lot  of  maintainence  and  we  end  up  wasting  a  lot  of  water  due  to  the  water  changes.
