I have two aquariums, one for Gourami and the other a general community tank, and all of my fish love these. They watch me drop them in at the top and follow them down to the bottom. The fact that they soften immediately is a bonus, as it means the fish can eat them quicker and there is less mess.It is especially fun to watch my 8 Cory Cats rushing around to get every last morsel.
I have to agree with previous reviewers that this product sinks to the bottom of an aquarium tank or pond almost instantly. The cylinder like pellets thereafter don't take too long to start disintigrating. The disintigration of the pellet does cloud or help add particles to the water. Do bottom feeders eat this? Yes in my experience they do. I have had to use combination of floating and sinking foods to feed all my pond fish who feed at varying levels in the water. Also the food doesn't smell fishy, it smells grainy and old (perhaps that is normal). Also I read on another site that SHRIMP is NOT the main or first ingredient and from what I've seen that seems accurate. This product is good however for the money. I would not recommend mass stocking it though like I did. As usual PetMountain is #1 in pricing and in customer service :)
"Wardley Shrimp Pellets are designed to soften and sink gradually, to allow fish at all levels to feed at their leisure." Well they sink to the bottom like stone in the water. After while they dissolve too fast.The small particles are all over the water making dirty water and fish don't eat what ever is in the gravel so you have to clean more often.
My pleco, Pangasius Catfish, Albino Cory, and other tropical fish loves them. Especially my catfish loves it a lot, cause now i can see its belly fat. The only bad size is the it dissolved too fast. It makes the tank look dirty when the big fish swim to close to it, to eat it.
My fish will ONLY eat Wardley Shrimp Pellets and was tried of paying pet store prices and googled it and found this site. AWESOME prices and great products!!
My Channel cats and all my other fish love this stuff, I also feed them frozen blood worms at the same time. When I am in a hurry it's easy to just feed them just the pellets too. Knowing that I am giving my fish a great quality food that I can buy in such a big size is great. I have bought many 32 oz containers and will continue to buy many more.
All our pond fish absolutely love this food. Needing larger packages this Quantity and Top Quality is the way to go.The fish absolutely love it and we appreciate it! Thank you :) :)
