My fish like it
Fantastic food for a community tank. My Mollies and Platys catch some mid-water, while the catfish and pleco graze on the bottom to eat those that sank. Even the Mollies and Platys will go to the bottom to find any that they missed. No waste - no leftover food on the bottom. Not suited for fry or very small fish unless you crumble them first.

I've been using this and the Cichlid crisps for over two years. They are both excellent products. All my fish love them and I have next to zero waste. Highly recommended.
GREAT FOOD 8/17/2012
I use these crisps (along with flakes), everytime I feed my fish. I have mollies, platys, plecos and dwarf cory catfish, and they all LOVE these crisps. It adds a different taste and texture to their meals.
This food is not good at all. Yes the fish do pick at it on its way straight to the bottom, but then it just sits there and decays. I have 35-40 tetra of 3 different types and if I put 5 of these "crisps" in, they make it to the bottom nearly totally intact. No joke, The tetra destroy some flake food though, so much so that I have to put pellets in for my cory doras because no flakes make it to the bottom, so I know they eat good, its this food that sucks.
