  1. Look for the natural color signifying the superior quality only Hikari can offer. One feeding and you'll understand why we call Hikari Bio-Pure FD the world's finest freeze dried aquatic diets.
  2. Our exclusive, pharmaceutical grade freeze-drying process allows us to maintain the original taste, texture and nutrition of the live animal. Excellent as a delivery agent for medications and as a laxative to clear their system of medication dyes.
  3. Loaded with bio-encapsulated multi-vitamins to improve the overall health of your pet while reducing stress and stress related disease.
  4. Nitrogen charging and oxygen absorbers packed inside each can maintain freshness while reducing the chances of fatty acid oxidation common with competitive items.
  5. A higher protein diet, great as a treat for most herbivorous fish or filter feeds.
  6. When sprinkled from the patented Easy-Feed top, these small water fleas quickly hydrate to their nature state when put in water.
Hikari Bio-Pure FD Daphnia is best forMarine fishes and filter feeders, goldfish and smaller freshwater or any fish.

Yes, luckily I have a Petco, Petsmart and Pets Supply Plus all within a mile or two of one another. Pets Supply Plus is the only store that carries Daphnia at my location as well.

Petsmart doesn't have it. You can get it from Drsfosterandsmith.com.

Have not had any issue with bloat. Main reason some people hate Freeze dried is due to the food enlarging itself when dropped (soaked) in tank water. Daphnia are water fleas, they are miniscule, almost microscopic in size so the chances of bloat on daily feedings is slim and none.

Probably easier on the small stomachs of bettas to digest due to the Daphnia's size.

It's good to give as a treat. From what I have read it says to not give it to them as their main food source cause it does not have all the essentials for their body. But yes it is good for bloat and SBD.
