Carophyl Pink is another commonly used food additive to help boost the pink and orange tones in fish. Once hydrolized in the fish gut and absorbed through digestion, it is converted to 10% astaxanthin. Mix with homemade foods or use a binder to adhere to flakes, pellets or freeze dried products.
Mix at a ratio of 60-65 mg per pound of finished food. If adding both Carophyll Pink and our Astaxanthin Powder, it is recommended to use a lower percentage of each powder in the food batch.
