Multi-vitamin supplement for improved fish and snail coloration in ponds and water gardens


• Provides a full-complement of water- and fat-soluble vitamins in ratios found to improve overall health and coloration of pond fishes and snails.

• Useful when preparing fishes for spawning; also benefits parents caring for their brood.

• Requires no refrigeration.

Technical Background

Vitamins are compounds required in minute concentrations for vital metabolic reactions; the amounts of vitamins required for a given species varies. Short-term vitamin deficiencies can typically be tolerated by most organisms, however long-term deficiencies tend to result in abnormalities, poor health, and eventually even death of the specimen. Conversely, if severely overdosed, ingested vitamins can have a negative impact on a specimen by way of toxicity, though the impact is unlikely to be permanent. Decreasing the vitamin dosage typically results in full recovery of the affected specimen.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Instructions and Guidelines

Shake container well before each use. Store indoors, above 50° F.

To fortify food: Place food in a clean container such as a small bowl or cup and add only enough FlorinVita to saturate. Allow at least 5 minutes to elapse before feeding, enabling adequate time for the vitamins to become thoroughly absorbed by the food. Repeat with each feeding, or as deemed necessary by the general appearance of the fish.

As a Spawning Aid: When preparing fish for spawning, feeding frequency is often increased; limit the use of FlorinVita to twice each day. Apply same rule when feeding parents caring for young fish.

It is recommended that FlorinVita be utilized as a soak for vitamin-deficient foods, but not through direct addition to the water. Freshwater fish do not drink much water; rather, it enters their bodies as a result of osmotic pressure gradients.  Resultantly, addition of FlorinVita directly to a pond will be of extremely little benefit.
