Multi vitamins for fish

I’ve seen more and more diseases related to nutritional diseases lately. Fish may present with appetite loss, reddened base of fish, lose their balance, swim in spiralling motion, and have buoyancy disorders, either floating at the water surface or sunken to the tank floor.

In a number of these situations, we have been able to reverse these issues and prevent further deaths with vitamins.

We have in stock, these multivitamins by Sera.

•15ml fishtamin: $42. • 100ml fishtamin: $85.
•100ml koi multivit: $85.
