Nourish your finned friends with the scientifically-proven, premium-quality nutrition of Hikari Sinking Wafers Fish Food. Featuring a unique disc shape that bottom feeders can swallow easily, these nutritious wafers offer a uniquely balanced diet and soften gradually without dissolving. Considered the quality leader in aquatic nutrition for decades, Hikari devotes a significant amount of time, money and resources into studying the dietary needs and preferences of fish in both their natural environments and in aquatic laboratory settings to determine the precise balance of nutrients they need in order to thrive in captivity.

Key Benefits
  • Superior nutrition has been scientifically proven by decades of research to meet the dietary needs of corydoras catfish, loaches and other bottom feeders.

    Great Product.

    By countrychix on Aug 12, 2020

    I use these wafers a lot in my aquariums. I have cory cats and pleco that quickly jump on them. When they are first placed in the aquariums the larger fish (congo tetra, skirted tetra) scoop them up and hold the wafer in their mouths until they are able to consume them.

    preferred food for fish

    By kdog on Jul 28, 2020

    Food doesn't leave a foggy mess in the tank. The cories prefer the wafers over others that I have tried. Everyone is happy and the fish are laying eggs again.

    Bottom feeder fav and Emperor Tetra's love them too

    By CareyG on Mar 5, 2020

    High quality fish food for loaches, corys and others. Fish love it. Someone noted that if you buy the largest size bag, you get larger wafers. This is not true. They're all small rounds.

    My African Clawed frogs love these!

    By DaneMom on Mar 20, 2020

    I use these sinking wafers for my clawed frogs in between feeding them live feeder fish. They follow the food to the bottom and shovel them into their mouths :)

    The best sinking food for loaches

    By Eric on Dec 3, 2019

    I just turned in my loach to a local pet store and they never had seen a loach so large, 14 inches. This is all I fed him. If you buy the big package you get large disc. If you buy the smallest one you get tiny disc. I would use the tiny ones for snacks during the day and feed him a large one at night.

    Fish Love Them

    By FarmMom on Apr 15, 2019

    Very pleased with pellets. Sink right to the bottom and the cat fish swim right over to eat. My Tetras sometimes try to steal some away! Great price too!

    Tiny, Great Quality!

    By TheRatDragon on Sep 1, 2018 Top 50 Contributor

    I don't recommend these for fish because they're just WAY too small, but I definitely recommend them for Shrimp! I have 2 Cherry, 2 Chocolate, 1 Bumblebee, and 1 Clear Amano Shrimp in a 1 gallon hanging wall fish bowl with a Sponge filter, live plants, and white sand, and they absolutely LOVE them! Even though they're so small, the 3.88 oz bag usually lasts me 3 months or so, so I rarely have to refill them! And as soon as I drop these in, the Shrimp race to the middle and start chewing them apart!!!
