Dr. Bassleer Biofish Food Matrine is a groundbreaking anti-ich food, utilizing the valuable alkaloids matrine and oxymatrine from the plant Sophora flavescens (Chinese: “Ku Shen”). These alkaloids encourage a thickened mucous layer and act as a repellent, discouraging parasites such as Ichthyophthirius or Cryptocarion from attaching to your fish. Free-floating ich will have a more difficult time attaching to your fish and will remain vulnerable to traditional medicinal treatment.



  • Discourages attachment of parasites
  • Contains valuable probiotics and prebiotics
  • Nutritionally dense with minimal waste
  • Extremely high-quality ingredients


The granulated Dr. Bassleer fish food consists mainly of Scandinavian wild fish. It contains a high percentage of proteins (54 %), along with all the vitamins, trace elements and minerals fish need. The formulas are further upgraded by functional additives (probiotics, prebiotics, plants and plant extracts) that are artisanally coated at low temperature after processing the granulate. Due to this very special production process, the full nutritional value of vitamins, proteins and trace elements are preserved and readily absorbable. Along with high-quality base ingredients, the use of probiotics and prebiotics supports a stronger immune system and helps to ensure that the fish are able to get the most out of the available nutrients. This in turn increases your fish’s recovery and resistance to disease.
