I feed Captain Bob’s Sink or Swim Fish Foods because my fish are worth it…and so are yours!
“I began making my own fish foods because I wanted healthy ingredients in the food I feed my fish. I wanted a food to exceed tropical fish food standards; building a healthier immune system and adding vibrant color naturally-without the use of chemicals, fillers, or preservatives.
It went so well I just had to share it with my friends. Now I would like to share it with everyone.” Bob Borger
After extensive research on fish nutrition and product manufacturing, Bob developed several varieties of foods to meet the feeding requirements of plant lovers and meat lovers, and from fry to adult.
