Mixing Instructions - Easy 1-2-3-4
Add Reverse Osmosis (RO) water to Floritin Stikistik in a 1:1.5 ratio. For best results use RO water. Do not use aquarium saltwater, as it makes the mix denser, less sticky, and it will fall apart faster once applied to a surface.
Knead powder and water inside bag that powder came in. Once fully mixed it is easiest to turn bag inside out and peel off the mixture.
Determine what amount of the mix will be used immediately. The mix can be safely frozen and store for later use. Store inside fresh zip lock bag or air tight container.
Apply an appropriate amount, based on tank size and number of fish, to the surface of a rock, coral skeleton or interior glass near the bottom.
The amount of food varies significantly, depending on fish species, size, age, etc. Some species can be fed once or twice a day, some need to be fed 3-4 times a day. Place a certain amount of Floritin Stikistik into your aquarium and observe if it is consumed within 30-45 min. This should be the appropriate amount.
Place it in various places, so all the fish have access to it. You may attach it to the aquarium glass wall near the bottom and observe your fish consume it, however, it is preferable to apply it on the surface of the rocks or coral skeleton. This is a more natural way of feeding and your fish are accustomed to getting food this way.
Make a small amount of Floritin Stikistik paste and squeeze it tightly against the glass or rock surface. It should attach firmly. If Floritin Stikistik does not attach, it means there is too much water in the mixture
Add water to Floritin Stikistik in a 1:1.5 ratio. For each 10 gram of powder use 15 milliliters of RO water.
Salt water contains sodium and magnesium ions. These ions will make the mix denser and less sticky and Floritin Stikistik will fall apart faster inside the aquarium.
You can use tap water if you do not have RO water available.
The resulting mix will lose the ability to stick to the aquarium wall and will disintegrate in water.
Yes, frozen food can be mixed with Stikistik. Please thaw frozen shrimp prior to adding to the mix and use less water.
Yes, Stikistik is compatible with all commonly used medications and presents a convenient way to administer oral medication to your fish.
