For targeting color brightening of yellow, orange, and red shrimp species, feed your shrimp Dennerle Shrimp King Color food granules. This diet has a high concentration of astaxanthin, beta-carotene, and lutein which naturally enhance color. These sinking, water-stable food grains are made from 100% natural ingredients for pigment intensification of freshwater dwarf shrimp.
Yellow, orange, and red shrimp obtain their colors from their nourishment. Known as carotenoids, these colorings are mainly found in algae, flowers, fruits, and leafy vegetables. Shrimp and crawfish turn carotenoids into their own pigments, particularly astaxanthin, which forms a molecular bond with the protein beta crustacyanin. These molecular compounds are stored in amazing color cells and provide species-specific colors.
The method shrimp use to obtain their colors are similar to the popular pink flamingos: If these birds consume small, carotenoid-rich crustaceans like artemia, their feathers develop a pink color from the carotenoid or the astaxanthin they contain. If, on the other hand, their diet does not contain any natural colors, they lose their pink pigment and become white.
Shrimp King Color is rich in natural colorings from an extensive selection of top-quality ingredients such as micro-algae, crustaceans, tagetes flowers, paprika, carrots and decapsulated artemia eggs. With constant feeding, you will see the full development of the species-specific coloring.
Shrimp King Color is precisely matched for the following species: Red Fire, Sakura Red, Sakura Orange, Blue Pearls, Yellow Fire, Black Tiger Shrimps and Blue Tiger Shrimps.
Superior proteins and vital amino acids from aquatic lifeforms act as carrier materials for the natural color enhancers. Vitamins and key elements from diverse kinds of algae and vegetables act as "lubricants" for a working metabolism and robust defenses.
