  • Effective, fish like these- there's a trick to make them sink!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I've used these first, in my 75gal indoor goldfish tank, which acts more like a small pond than an aquarium. As others have noted, sometimes these little food pans float, meaning land critters can raid your vacation food and leave your fish hungry, to excavate all your pond plants as Koi salad while you are away. You can't tell from looking at any individual block, if it will sink, or float - but you can test it in your kitchen first! Fill a large kitchen mixing bowl with water. Take the top film off the food pan. Place it in the bowl, and observe. If it doesn't sink after about 2 minutes, take out the pan, place the film back over the food, submerge the whole thing in your mixing bowl, I've used these first, in my 75gal indoor goldfish tank, which acts more like a small pond than an aquarium.

You can't tell from looking at any individual block, if it will sink, or float - but you can test it in your kitchen first! Fill a large kitchen mixing bowl with water. Take the top film off the food pan. Place it in the bowl, and observe. If it doesn't sink after about 2 minutes, take out the pan, place the film back over the food, submerge the whole thing in your mixing bowl, and press down on the film. Not so hard the food squishes, but just enough to get air bubbles to escape! Remove the film under water, and see what happens. If it sinks, take the film and food pan out to your pond, and repeat the squeezing in the pond. The whole thing should burp only a few bubbles, and then sink for your fish to enjoy. If the pan still floats after kitchen squeezing, remove it, and puncture a couple sets of holes in the sides of the pan with a fork. Replace the film, submerge, then try squeezing again. The trapped air bubbles should escape, and the whole pan should sink. Remove the pan and film, go out to your pond, and you should get a sinking pan without additional holes. If the pan still floats after the hole punching, just try popping the whole food circle out of the pan, and see if it still floats. Nine of ten times I've done this, the food disc will sink. The one time it didn't, I removed it and cut it in half, and tried again...sank like the Titanic. The sole drawback for removing the pan altogether, means it becomes possible for one or two large, greedy fish to gobble the majority of the food, leaving the other fish hungry. Luckily, Koi and goldfish can go several days in a well balanced pond, without dying of hunger. They will consume surface landing insects, and nibble on your plants and algae growth, and just be a bit more pecking when you return. … more

    I think the fish like it. Unfortunately, it floats, and the raccoons like it too. I'll have to think of some way to keep it away from the raccoons.
