I like sinking. They never hit the bottom, the fish get them first. I am not aware of any high quality foods that are floating pellets?

I use "sinking". Because it moves, the fish go after it more.

I used nls cichlids sinking in my male peacock / hap tank.

It's cool to watch them sift sand when they scoop the pellets off of the sand

Does NLS offer different size pellets? And what size pellets would be ideal for a 3" cichlid

I use mostly Northfin and some New Life Spectrum since I heard they are two of the best quality pellets. I stay away from all the cheap brands carried by the local pet stores here where I live. I suppose my fish would survive on the cheap foods but I just feel better about feeding them the foods I've heard recommended.

I used 1mm pellets for fish up to seven inches.

I did have an 8 inch fish that I tried 2mm pellets for...I think he might have been partially blind.

I mix them up floaters and sinkers. I use a feeder that I push the button and get for the most part the same amount every time. At this point there large pellets and can eat more then I will give them.
