Cichlid Mom

The 2.5oz container does not have the same sized pellets as the 7oz container. My large Cichlids couldn't even see these pellets that are smaller than their eyes. Frog food pellets are larger! I'll probably feed these to the community tank of Platy fish and Zebra Danios.

Cichlids Love It

My Oscars as well as my African Cichlids love this food. Digests well and helps keep the take clear when fed at appropriate amounts

Picky eaters

When I feed them anything else they pick at it. But this, they eat like they're starving and haven't eaten in days. Thank you.

Not LARGE pellets

The quality of this food is great but was disappointed with a few things. The pellets are not what I would consider large. We have bought large in other brands and they are twice this size. Also, this jar lasts a long time but the one I just received expires 03/20. Seems a little soon! Definitely won't be done with them by then.

I like this fish food

Floats and easy to clean out if fish doesn't eat. Doesn't leave the tank scummy.
