"Total rejection by my cichlids"
All of the cichlids, more than 12 different fish, I have used this with totally reject it. I have tried it several times over a few months and even tried to mix it with other types of food. The fish will take a pellet and spit it out every time.

"Not a staple food, as label suggests."
I would not feed this to any algae grazing African Cichlid as a staple food. Once and a while, sure, but it's liable to induce Malawi Bloat or Dropsy with all the fish meal in it if used on a regular basis. It says it's for Herbivores and Carnivores, but when fish meal is the first ingredient and Spirulina near the middle to end of the list I tend to be skeptical as to it's benefits for herbivores. Greens and Spirulina should be the first ingredients for any herbivorous food, not fish meal and fillers! HBH's 8 Veggie Flakes and Marineland Labs Bio Blend are both excellent veggie foods as staple. Too much animal protein is believed to be one of the main causes of Malawi Bloat/Dropsy and I know first hand this is true because ever since I switched to veggie based foods, no more bloat. This has been the experience of many Cichlid keepers. There are way better foods out there, but for the price, this stuff is O.K. Know and pay attention to your fish's native diet if they were in the wild and choose food based on that. Your fish will thank you for it. Cichlid intestines are very long and too much protein in their diet blocks them up, then disaster. Peas are a natural laxative and should be an ingredient in any Cichlid food as they will help prevent these blockages. I don't see Peas anywhere on this Wardley food. Their other products are fine, some are excellent in fact, but this stuff, I'll never it buy again.

"Low quality food"
I feed this to my Oscars at work and they seem to like it, but it's mostly filler. It's not really a nutitionally complete food. If you feed this, you will have to give them lots of other things as well to complete thier diet. Why not just get a higher quality food and save the trouble?

"Stay Away!"
My fish hate it. They are way too big to fit in their mouths, if they can fit it they just spit it out!

"Inexpensive and entertaining"
I use this in addition to NLS. My cichlids love it. I bought medium size pellets that are too big for about half of my tank members. It's fun to watch them try to eat it. I don't add enough for every fish in the tank so it turns into a mix of smear the queer and water polo. Good times.

"Decent Staple"
I originally bought these to feed to some Congo Tetras and Silver Dollars, both of which ate these readily. In fact, the Silver Dollars really attacked these floating pellets.

I've also been feeding these along with a high-end flake diet to my African tanks. Though the fish seem to take to these pellets, the fish haven't "taken off" in color, though have grown well on them. At the moment, I'm finishing the remainder and moving the fish unto a better quality pellet.

I'd recommend Wardley cichlid pellets to be used sparingly but not as a staple diet.

"Not Recommended"
Sorry, but this food is loaded with fillers that have no nutritional value. I would not feed it to my fish again. There are other brands that are other companies dedicated to the quality and health of your fish like NLS and Marinelab and I will buy from them.This is an Economy brand, if you will.

"The bare minimum"
This should come as no suprise but Wardley's flake foods are a staple food, not a "premium" food as their label suggests. It will keep you fish healthy but will not naturally exploit any of your specimens' color and breeding potential. Much of this food is digested through as waste resulting in more frequent tank changes. This flake is also slightly oily, which can lead to surface accumulation in some tanks over the course of time. If you are really on a budget, look into Aquarian foods. They strike a good value for the price point. Or, better yet, spring for a higher quality flake like Ocean Nutrition and make an investment in your fishes color and activity. They are there for your enjoyment.

"My fish love it."
I think the quality could be better but as for a staple food it seems to work real well and has added growth to my fish. As for value it is relatively inexpensive for the quanity you get.

"My fish love it!"
I've been using Wardley's Medium Pellets for 2 years now and my fish love it. They see me coming and all float to the top, waiting. My only compaint is that it has to be soaked first...for about 30 minutes. Other than that I think it's great! I've never had a problem with coloring or mortality with this food.

"Decent Product"
All my fish seemed to eat this pellet, but there are better products out there. I did notice the fish's colors weren't as vivid as with other foods, so I did stop using the product. This pellet is one of those basic, non-fuss products that pretty much any fish will eat.

"Not recomended as Staple Diet"
I use this food for a daily diet on my africans, i have found that they are very active all the time, and they stay nice and plump, but their colors are very very dull. the "medium" size pellet is very small, and i have to feed in large amounts to make up for the size of the pellet, my fish will eat anything that goes into the water and can fit in thier mouths. I am switching food, and plan to never buy this food again. I only used it because i was unable to order food online, and this was the best stuff i could find locally....

"Fish don't seem to like it."
I have almost a whole bag of this stuff. The fish never seemed to like it and it has to soak for a while to soften up. I've had good luck with other Wardley food, but there are many better choices than these pellets.
