ACE-High for pond fish
ACE-High is a special vitamin supplement which has been formulated to provide high levels of vitamins A, C & E, crucial in aiding animals such as fish, birds and reptiles through periods of stress and disease. The enhanced levels of vitamins A,C & E along with smaller quantities of other vitamins and minerals including B1, B2, B6 & B12 have been proven to improve health. When used regularly, ACE-High helps meet the needs of fish to compensate for vitamins lost in storage, processing, feeding or when washed out due to slow feeding. It also helps fish maintain levels of important vitamins at times of stress or whilst suffering from (or recovering from) illness.
Vitamins A and E are both involved in helping the body resist infection. Vitamin A is essential for healthy mucous membranes such as the mouth, gills and gut, and vitamin E has been shown to boost the immune mechanism in some species. Vitamin C is used up very quickly by the body when it is under stress and so must be replaced, otherwise growing fish can become severely and permanently deformed due to vitamin deficiencies.
Whatever attention is normally paid to diet and supplements, fish which are newly arrived in quarantine, travelling around shows, in breeding condition, or suffering from an illness will all require nutritional assistance to maintain their condition and fight disease.
We recommend using ACE-High even when you are using pellets that already contain these vitamins. The reason for this is that because vitamins are water soluble, over 50% has been shown to leach out of some leading brand pellets after 30 seconds in the water, and this is why we suggest adding extra, protected in oil or agar.
