Probiotics: For Xtreme applications a blend of Bacillus licheniformis, Bacillus pumilus, and Bacillus subtilis is incorpoated. This blend has strains of bacteria that reduce nitrate, nitrite, and ammonia, improve water clarity, help with feed digestion, and activity against fish pathogens. This blend is typically supplied at a concentration of 50 billion (5e10) colony forming units/gram.
Bacillus strains as probiotics: The advantage of Bacillus is that they form spores. These spores are very much like the seed of a plant and are stable for long periods of time. Just like seeds, when you add the appropriate nutrients (fish feed in this case) and water, they germinate and grow, producing active vegetative cells that are beneficial in aquatic systems. The spores are also tolerant to temperatures that would kill typical probiotics, such as Lactobacillus.
Xtreme Aquatic Food Diets are formulated using premium ingredients, including Krill, Shrimp, Herring, Squid, Menhadden and Octopus, Fish and Herring combined with Grown-in-the-USA spirulina and our proprietary Bio-pack vitamins and minerals. Nothing is left to chance. Each batch milled is first tested, then fed on the Xtreme tropical fish farm in South Florida and then packed for sale under the Xtreme brand. Much of the work done is by hand, and every step of the process from harvest to delivery is inspected to insure that quality standards are met.
