perfect wafer

These are so hard to find anywhere near my house and I needed something for my corydora catfish that my Betta wouldn’t try eating and these are perfect !

Cory cats love these

I’m a fan of Hikari food. These sinking wafers, the mini algae wafers, the micro pellets, and the daphnia are my go to’s for my 35 gallon freshwater tropical tank.

Not wafers

I LOVE Chewy! They ship so fast. But, these are not wafers IMO. They are pellets. They sink slowly, which is good, but they go into the gravel because of their size. Wafers on the other hand sink but stay on top of gravel so fish have a chance to clean them up. I won’t buy them again for this reason.

Great for loaches

The other food I got for my loaches they didn't really care for, it looked like they were forced to eat it so they wouldn't go hungry, but with this they actually seek it out and munch on it. They're usually shy and wait until night time to eat, but they go for these as soon as they drop!

Great food!

These sinking pellets are the favorite food for all of my fish. Betta, rainbow shark, Cory cats and zebra danios, (I have two tanks, not all the fish are together). We’re still building our tank species. This will definitely be a staple in their diet!

Great food for cory catfish

My Cory's love this food. I have about 40 Cory's in my 125 gallon tank. They all go crazy for these at feeding time. Very good quality. They are happy and healthy. Glad chewy has these. Will not buy any other brand.

plecos love them

I have some prolific bristle nose plecos and their offspring love these! They don’t seem to cloud or dirty the tanks either.

Great for Cory catfish!

I have an assortment of corys and some cuckoo catfish and they LOVE these wafers. My guppy’s will also pick at them as well!
