Adult carnivorous and omnivorous turtles.
Fish Fuel Co Turtle Food provides a premium quality, complete and balanced diet for adult carnivorous and omnivorous turtles.
We carefully select our Turtle Food’s premium ingredients so we can provide turtles with the type of protein they would find – and eat – in their natural environment. In the wild turtles feed on molluscs, bugs, small fish and crustaceans etc, and some plant material. So we’ve included all these types of ingredients plus a special multi-vitamin and minerals formula including essential fatty acids omega 3, 6, & 9 developed by leading animal nutrition company Wombaroo.
110 Grams net – 35 Cubes
Contains: Premium quality fish, prawns, New Zealand green lip mussels, lean roo silverside, clams, squid, krill pacifica, octopus, green beans, zucchini, carrot, corn, spinach, wheat germ, spirulina algae and dietary fibre. Fortified with leading animal nutrition company Wombaroo’s customised multi-vitamin and minerals formula including essential fatty acids omega 3, 6, & 9 as well as Vitamin D3 and calcium, essential for strong and healthy shell development.
How and when to feed:
Feeding once a day is usually sufficient for a mature turtle.
These feeding instructions should be used as a guide only, as there are many variables to take into consideration when feeding your turtle, such as the water temperature, the size of the turtle and whether your turtle is still growing. Care must be taken so not to over-feed or under-feed your turtle as both can cause problems.
If you feed your turtle a frozen cube, 5-10 minutes of feeding time should be enough time for your turtle to eat enough food to sustain it until the next feeding time. If you first thaw the cube in a glass of cold water and then give to your turtle, then allow just a minute or two of feeding.
Thawing the cube in a glass of cold water for 5 minutes will make it easier for smaller juvenile turtles to feed. Never thaw in hot water or the microwave as this will break down essential nutrients in the food. Always remove any uneaten food.
