Hikari Sinking Carnivore Pellet Food Customer Reviews

Bob, Tampa FL on 2013/12/02
Floating Carnivore Pellets

I have long enjoyed feeding my Cory catfish and mud turtles Hikari Sinking Carnivore Pellets. But the formula must have changed recently. Last month I received an order and found that the pellets float when dropped into the water. I have to swish the water to make them sink. I have never had this problem with these pellets before. I opened a second bag and experienced the same problem. I even have some left over from a previous order, they sink immediately upon hitting the water. Hikari, please fix this!

Good stuff!

The bottom feeders love these. Sometimes the other fish will come down to eat.

Carnivore Pellets

I love this.. I've been using it a looong time for my black ghost knife fish and violet goby dragon fish.. they loooove it and it sinks to the bottom and gets bigger and soft as it is in the water and they really like it.. thanks a lot this is a good low price for it too. :)

Great product

Great product if you need a sinking, meaty, high protein food. I use it for cichlids but it would be ideal for catfish too.

My fish love the taste

I have kuhli loaches and dwarf gouramis and yoyo loaches in my tank and they all go gaga over this. It must me nice and meaty to them, all I know is they gobble it up FAST!

Debbie, Tremont PA on 2010/09/05
My piranha loved it!

They eat every piece they can find. I have never seen them get excited over any other fish food other than live food. It is worth every cent.

Liz, Sarasota FL on 2010/06/03
The Very Best!

These pellets are absolutely phenomenal. They are eagerly accepted by all of my fish, even those that aren't "carnivores" can't keep away! I really do think that they're what keep my fish so healthy and their colors so eye-popping and vibrant! They're also a great bargain, last long, and keep the water clear, unlike similar products of other brands!

A Favorite Of All My Fish

All of my fish love the Hikari Sinking Carnivore Pellets, especially my 20" Clown Knife, 24" Irridescent Shark, Cory Catfish and Clown Loaches. I feed the pellets every day. I wouldn't be without them.

my fish love to feed

this item is so good for red belly and any fish don't made water messy

Sandi, Pottstown PA on 2008/02/22

HOMER, my golden severum, loves this food! Every morning, he patiently waits for me to drop into the tank one pellet at a time, gobbling up each one while waiting for the next to float down to him. He's at least six inches now, and still growing.... The 5 silver dollars , just a few of his tank mates, know better than to come between Homer and his carnivore pellets. When he is finished eating, Homer then swims to another area of the tank; the silver dollars know that it is now their turn to enjoy these pellets. The fish say it all: these carnivore pellets by Hikari are Grrr8!

Anthon, Allen TX on 2007/12/11

my columbian sharks/catfish gobble these as fast as i drop them. must taste good to them. if one is missed it, it doesn't dissolve and make a mess.

Sarah, Burghill OH on 2007/01/02
My Clown Loaches love it!

My two 9 yr. old clown loaches get this as their primary food. The only thing they like better is live snails! p.s Don't forget to supplement their diet with veggie based food.
