Tetra launches Micro food range for small fish

Tetra has responded to consumer demand with the launch of a new Micro food range. Designed specifically to suit smaller species of fish with small mouths, including young and adolescent fish, Tetra’s Micro food range is packed full of nutrients to help them thrive.


As the nation focuses on ways to relieve stress and with living spaces reducing in size, many people are now turning to smaller aquariums with smaller types of fish such as neons, guppies and zebrafish all becoming increasingly popular. Tetra’s new launch responds to these trends by providing small fish and even growing fish such as cichlids and marine fish with tailored levels of vitamins, minerals and high-quality proteins and fats in a nutritious bitesize formula.


With finely ground ingredients such as carotenoids for vibrant colours and plant ingredients for promoting good health and vitality, the range comes in a variety of forms including granules, sticks and crisps. With different floating and sinking properties fish can also be fed at their own water level. What’s more, thanks to being easily digestible, Tetra’s Micro food also helps to reduce water pollution.


Commenting on the launch, Ashleigh Foster, Aquatics Marketing Manager at Tetra said, “At Tetra, fish wellbeing is at the forefront of everything we do and so we’re very excited about our new launch, which is specifically suited to smaller fish, allowing them to receive the nutrition they need to live a healthy life. It’s because of our passion to make fishkeeping as easy and enjoyable as ever why we’re continually reviewing trends alongside our product range to ensure we’re providing solutions to suit our consumer’s needs.”


Tetra’s Micro food comes in 100ml tins with a practical feeding spoon for precise dosing and is available from mid-March with an RRP of £5.20*.
