My juvenile chocolate cichlid and the swordtails in the tank love this food. I've seen lots of growth and coloration. Very little waste and easy to feed. Even though it's a bit higher in fillers than the Omega products, it's also low in fat and high in vitamin content. Hikari also prints an expiration date on their packages, which I appreciate. Great value and a great food: cichlids and tropicals will benefit from regular feedings.

"Great food!"
I use the baby pellets for my juveniles. Their color has turned around for the better since bringing them home. They eagerly await feeding and go nuts when I pull the food out.

"OK quality pellet, the fish eat it.."
Although it is reasonably priced, there is a lot of filler in the food, so I rated it a bit lower on value. The ingredients are acceptable and the fish eat it without hesitation. I use it in a pellet mix also consisting of Omega One Cichlid and Super Kelp pellets to make sure all nutritional bases are covered.

"Good food at a good price"
I was really happy with the ingrdients considering the price compared to other pellet foods of the same nature. I was using just blood worms and some cheap flake food (forgot the brand already) and after I switched (about 3 months ago) I noticed the colors really starting to come out.

"Extremely Healthy. The large cichlids love it"
Oscars, firemouths, JDs, mbuna, and large tropical fish love this stuff! It really brings out their natural colors too.

"Great pellet"
What can I say all my fish love it. Never had a fish refuse it yet.

Recently traded about 5 yellow labs for my Julie and they were the most bland yellow you have ever seen. Fed them this along side with homemade frozen food and now their colors are neon. Fair price also

"Wicked food"
Im pretty much in love with this food, my oscar and cichlids get really excited when they see me come near the tank with the pellets.

"Oscar begs to eat these"
I have had my Oscar for a few weeks and this pouch of cichlid food came with the fish. She begs for it especially when I hold the package up in front of the tank :D I want to try omega one or nls, but this is okay for now

"Wide vaviety of fish love it, great color"
I have fed this to my colection for over 5 years. I love the size variety, quick growth, and color. My CA & SA all love it, and so do many unlikely suspects. My aligator gar prefers to live. My flowerhorn has shown amazing growth and color. In a smaller tank a sytadontis (sp?) abandons his shrimp pellets and battles the chichlids at the surface for this food. I have no complaints or reason to change foods. Excelent value, widely available at Petsmart.

"great for the $"
Great for the $ if you buy at Wally Mart. If I give my fish a choice between this and NLS they take NLS but they did "color up" with the Gold

"only pellets my fish eat"
I've tried several other pellets and my fish have chosen this one, hands down. They'll even eat it in addition to frozen/dried foods. I have also noticed my tiger oscar is much brighter than other tiger o's - my guess is that this food has a lot to do with it.
