The name NovoRift comes from the English term for the Great Rift Valley lakes in East Africa (Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi), which are called RIFT LAKES. Due to the consumption of insect larvae and crustaceans the natural food for most tropical ornamental fish has a protein/fat ratio of about 4:1. Only fish predators get a higher protein content through the protein-rich fish meat they eat. Their food has a P/F ratio of approx. 12:1. Our competition mostly provide food with a P/F rate of about 2.5:1. This food contains too much fat! For fish in the aquarium, which are often less active than in their natural habitat, this leads to fatty degeneration and thus to a vulnerability to disease or death. JBL has adapted its food ranges to the species-appropriate P/F ratios.
