These shrimp pellets are formulated from a nutritious blend of ingredients including vitamin C (required for normal wound healing, bone/gill development, and disease resistance). Wardley Shrimp Pellets are a sinking food, which makes them ideal for feeding a variety of tropical bottom-feeding fish, such as catfish and loaches; the pellet size also makes them an excellent food for larger fish like oscars and other cichlids.
This pellet food is a good bottom feeder food and large haps seem to like it. It does crumble very quickly once submerged or chewed. This is actually pretty good if you happen to have small fry near the rocks all the time because they can get the food when it crumbles and still return to safety.
Ya, my fish think it's OK. They don't eat much when it hit's the ground. It blends into the gravel to well for them to see. However, they at a ease of use and are quality food.

"Surprisingly tasty...if nothing else"
When you smell this food, it has an odd smell almost like plastic. I bought an enormous container from Walmart years ago, before I knew better, and fish still like it. In fact, they stir up a bit of a frenzy on the bottom - it's even nipped at by my tetras, who enjoy "balancing" the pellets on their nose before they sink. Wardley's products appear to be bunk nutritionally. I doubt there is anything nutritious about this food, but fish do seem to find these shrimp pellets really palatable for some reason.
My fish love these things! My frontosa go nuts when I drop a few of these in the tank. I wouldn't recommend soaking them in water/vitamins since it doesn't take very long for them to turn to mush. Every fish in my tank would be upset if I quit feeding them these.

"good bottom feeder"
My pleco and catfish love these. However I have never soaked them. I have always just dropped them in.
This product is good if you are looking for any easy solution to feeding your bottom dwellers. Like mentioned before, the pellets won't cloud your water if you don't add too many and my pleco just loves them--I think that's why I have more algae in my tank than usual.
I use this food to feed my 2 plecostomus. If used correctly it will not cloud the water. It will swell up, so it is a good idea to soak it first. It will break apart if soaked to long before dropping in the tank.
