Unfortunately Vitamins are not stable in prepared foods. Flake foods have adequate vitamin content initially, but it deteriorates rather quickly. Storage in the freezer will prolong the vitamin content, however since you can't be sure how long that food has been on your retailers shelf or indeed on the distributors shelf before that, it is best to add a good vitamin product to your flake food before feeding. Key vitamins needed for good health are A, D3, E, K, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, H, M, and inositol.
Many fish keepers are not aware of the critical role vitamins play in fish health. Lack of Vitamin A can cause back deformities and stunted growth in young fish. Anytime a fish is under stress the need for Vitamin A is increased. Vitamin E and A are key factors in maintaining fish in top breeding condition. Vitamin K is critical for proper blood clotting.
Vitamins B1, B2, and B6 are important for normal growth. Good digestion requires an adequate amount of Vitamin B3 and C. Vitamin C is also needed for healthy bones and teeth. Both Vitamin B5 and M are key factors in metabolism. Lack of Vitamin H reduces the formation of blood cells and can cause anemia.
Varying your fishes diet and adding Vitamins to the food will help assure that your fish have all the nutrients they need for good health and a long life.
