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.

    Not wafers

    By Pam126 on Jul 16, 2021

    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

    By squishytoebeans on Apr 29, 2021

    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!

    By Lisa on Apr 8, 2021

    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

    By halloweenkitten on Apr 2, 2021

    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.

    By 3m66 on Mar 1, 2021

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

    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.
