"BIO-PIGMENT PLUS" FREEZE DRIED BLACK WORMS 


This is new range is designed to help bring out the reds and oranges in your fish. It is made with a combination of Spinach, Spirulina Algae, Chlorophyll Pink and Black Worms.

PLEASE NOTE...Yellow fish and other light coloured fish should not be fed this food....they should be fed our "Regular" or "Plus Spinach" Freeze Dried Worms.

Australian Black Worms are a natural food that nature provides and are readily taken by aquatic creatures and a real treat for fish. An excellent high protein food great for both Marine and Freshwater fish. We have them available in a loose form and also in cubes.

Clean Food

The worms go through the same cleaning and purging procedure as if they were going to be fed live. They are then frozen in 2.5 kg blocks and loaded into the Cuddens freeze drier.

A vacuum pump takes all the air out of the chamber and then raises the temperature from minus 20deg C to 50deg C .

Water will boil at 0 deg C in a vacuum, so as the frozen worms start to thaw, all moisture turns to a vapour that is then refrozen on coils inside the chamber.

The process is a little bit more complicated than that, but that is the basis of how it is done. The important thing about the freeze drying process is that it will remove all the moisture from the worms without altering the nutritional facts of the product.

The whole process of growing, cleaning and processing the worms is done at the one location insuring the best possible product.

Disease free

Australia has very few if any diseases that are transmitted from water to fish and the area where these Black Worms live and grow are away from farming and industrial areas.

The water that the worms are grown in, up to a short time ago, came from the same water supply that we got our drinking water from.

Difference between live worms and freeze dried worms

The only difference between the two is the water content of the live worms

Different ways to feed cubes.

With the cubes, press one against the inside of the tank half-way down. It should stick against the side and the fish will then show more interest in it.

Once your fish get used to freeze-dried worms, they will usually take them from the surface.
