Hi George, thanks for your submission. Can you explain your idea a little more ? Are there any beneficial effects of the ingredients you mentioned, for example on fish colour or health ? And can you elucidate a little more on which part of Europe there is no ornamental fish feed production, and what could be the benefit for you. To my best of knowledge some of the major players in this market come from central Europe..

Hi George, in line with Chris, it would be interesting if you could explain further what you want to achieved with this improved ornemental fish food. In my knowledge, a basic "maintenance" feed should suffice, unless you want to improve color or health? Furthermore, do you think there is a market for such "premium" feed for ornemental fish?
