Thumbs down Hikari pellets

Apparently, biogold has switched its ingrediants in it's pellets, and now the pellets are mostly wheat and swell huge in water and are junk. Just warning for those who didn't know...

Now, a question. I have biogold pellets, but they were bought between 6 and 8 months ago. Are they the good kind still? I'm going to switch my pellet brand as soon as my current pellets run out (They've lasted awhile) But is it okay to feed them until then?

What are the ingredients on yours or the protein %? I have the old ones. I still feed mine with it primarily to get rid of it but only for their breakfast. They get Atison's or NLS for dinner.

Wow, thanks for the head's up, Baylee. That blows my mind, why would a company with such a good reputation change their recipe to crap like that?

hmm maybe fast her for a day or two and then try to feed her something different : ) I did that with my first female betta- she was fed yucky tetra pellets, wouldnt eat anything else, and I switched her food brand over from fasting her for a day ;P

It depends on the % and ingredients. I think that 38% protien 5% fat 7% fiber should be a minimum for pellet food. Lots of wheat or yeast ingredients sound yucky too. Check the info on your Tetracolor, you should be ok : D However NLS contains a lot of natural ingredients including fish, oils, fruits, and vegetables so it wont compare as far as taste and qualities. Thats why im switchin' over :P
