its more than adequate.

I have 2 corys in each 55g tank. All are looking fat and sassy so they're
getting enough. :-) *I drop a shrimp pellet in every other day or so because

Shrimp pellets are a good all around food / treat that pretty well
most all fish will eat or pick at. I do find the ones made by Wardley
to have a much higher "strange" smell to them as compared to Tetra
brand or Top Fin (Petsmart house brand) as well as others like Hikari

I have the Wardly brand and it has a faint fishy aroma. Not a bad aroma at
all.

I like to stay away from store brand generics (Top Fin, etc.) and the
low end brands Hartz..Wardley, etc.
These lower quality pellets tend to make such a mess, one of the
bigger down falls with shrimp pellets.
Tetra makes some good foods, but I recommend Hikari products.
==========================================
Most of what I see locally made by Hikari is goldfish food. I did see and
buy some Tropical Flakes I saw. My fish also like HBI foods, especially the
soft moist type.

Wardley is cheaper dumbass.its because they make and sell more of it
fool!...........Noting wronmg i wth any of the shrimp pellets or

Hey RM.If you sever see Hikari Micro Wafers, give them a try. I have
yet to find a fish that would not eat them. What you need to do is
send Hikari an email and tell them their food is high dollar, and yuor
income is low dollar, and yu need to be very selective on what foods
your fish will actualy consume and benefit from, and you will not
spend $X.XX on food only to have the fish turn their noses up at it.
Tell them you know drug companies, and dog food companies all send out
free samples and was wondering if they also did. I was told to do
this and I did and I received a email asking for my residence so they
could mail a package of samples to me. They sent me a heap of packets
of all kinds of foods ...............which fed my fish for quite some
time. Also look in the various petstores like Deathco and Petsmart
etc, as often times the distributor puts a box of sample packets of
foods there for customers to take and try.........Thats how I found
out about the MIcro Wafers.............almost resembles coarse ground
blackpepper, and the fish love it..........it is my main food anymore,
along with Shrimp pellets and bulk feeds I buy. My tanks are no more
messy feeding the bulk feeds nor do the fish look bad nor do they east
more or less............but it costs me much less in pocket money to
feed my fish......Feeding cheap foods and making a mess is an old
wives bull**** tale.just like Wardly and Hartz .........Give em a
variety and they all work just great.........

Will do - thanks! :-)

I'm waiting for the brand new ultra modern PetsMart to open in my nearest
town. I bet they'll have a large selection of feeds and carry Hikari
products. The smaller mom and pop store called "Extreme Pets" that just
opened has a very small selection of fish foods - and fish. I can't see how
they'll compete with the two large chains.

Based on what Gill Passman and Tynk aka Kelly posts you have to always
feed the highest priced most expensive foods, buy the most expensive
setups, and have the biggesta dbn best of anything so it does the job
correctly and is fit to own. Thats Kelly's (aka Tynk"s) way of doing
things, Do not worry about the small aspects just buy the best and it
should be ok.......................if it does not work just throw more
money at it..................uh huh! TYNK + GILL = 2 DUMBASSES

I'll second the approval of Hikari foods. The micro wafers are great and
they also have micro pellets for smaller fish or fish with small mouths.

After reading this thread, I was in Walmart here last night and looked
to see what they had as far as wafers. They had Wardley brand and Hikari
brand algea wafers. Doesn't mean they carry them in TN stores but they
typically carry the same things nation wide.

It was the only Hikari product I saw though.

Try shopping for fish food in a "real" store and not in Wally World
where the majority of "rednecks" and illegals shop for cut rate crap!
If a store (other than Wally World) carries Hikari products then they
can get in mirco wafers or pellets simply by ordering from
vendor.................Besides online is just too cheap to not use
decent foods like Hikari and even with shipping it may come out as
cheap as or cheaper than buying cheap foods locally....................
