Was planning on ordering this sinking pellet for goldfish

it is cheaper than other brands I guess because it is a home brand

Question is it contains canthaxanthin which is an E number food colourant

 

Any idea if that is good for goldfish?

Should I avoid this?

Advice appreciated as always :)

I already see foods with Astaxanthin in them fairly often, which means the fish don't have to do any converting. Canthaxanthin is often used as well. I believe the people who ship their farm-raised Atlantic Salmon to us at the grocer I work at use it to color the fish, too.

 

 

That being said, I am not totally sure on how healthy or unhealthy the canthaxanthin is.

canthaxanthin is used in Repashy Redrum gel food. I trust the quality of the repashy products. The form of canthaxanthin they use is from whole ingredients. Edited by LisaCGold
