Flaked Food is fish food which has been made into flakes. The food is mixed and then extruded or heated which produces the layers known as flakes. Flakes are very popular among hobbyists. Virtually all types of fish food can be made into flakes.
The flakes are small in size and usually float in the water. This gives time for the fish to eat them. Flake foods are usually fortified with minerals.
The size of the flake should be suitable for the fish. Small fish may not be able to eat large flakes.
Flake Foods usually come in sealed containers. They usually have a best-before date.
Store Flake foods in a cool dry place. Moisture and light should not be allowed to reach the flake foods.
