Carnivorous cichlids need to be kept on a specialized diet that is high in protein, but also includes vegetables as well. Carnivores in the wild will consume a certain amount of vegetable matter to acquire various nutrients that their diet may be lacking in. The reality is that carnivores do not just eat meat anymore than herbivores eat just algae and vegetables. Because of this, we make sure to include a balanced amount of both easily digestible marine proteins and vegetable matter in our Carnivore Crave pellets.
If you read the label closely, in some cases you may find that the food that was designed for carnivores, may in fact be based on land animal proteins like beef and poultry. Fish are cold-blooded animals, meaning that their body temperature rises and falls with their surrounding environment. They use fat for both an energy reserve as well as an energy resource. Just like humans, they have fat stored throughout their bodies. But these fats need to have a low melting point so that they can be utilized if the water around them is cold (like during the winter). Warm-blooded animals, on the other hand store fats that have a high melting point. If you feed your cichlids fats from warm-blooded animals, they will not be able to utilize a large amount of these fats for energy use. Consequently, it will be stored in their livers, and over time it will accumulate leading to Cirrhosis aka Fatty Liver Disease. Not ZHF's Carnivore Crave. Our food only includes marine proteins to ensure the health and longevity of your cichlids.
