  1. This is probably a long shot but does anyone in the UK have half a (newish) bag of these sinking pellets they can share with me? (I will pay of course) Googles will never get through a whole bag by himself! Thanks
  2. Lately I've been looking for some new pellet foods for my goldfish, as my current rotation is beginning to expire. When it comes to food, each of my fish have different tastes. My larger hibuna, Olive literally acts like a hog....I'm not even joking. She'll eat anything. Orange, my little comet, however is more picky. She doesn't like Super Green gel food at all, I've tried many different times to make her eat it, and she spits it out all the time. She is also picky with several vegetables. Anyway, I was lurking on eBay (as I always do! ) and found some pellet foods that struck my fancy. The company that manufactures them is not a large commercial brand, but more like a small business. They are called "Your Fish Stuff." They food they produce has no preservatives and is made in the USA, according to their page. Two types of foods caught my attention in particular. Keep in mind, both these foods are not marketed toward goldfish, but their ingredients are very similar to what is in commercial goldfish foods. First off, I'm looking for a supplemental pellet that has mostly veggie and algae matter rather than fish meals and such, to get more plant matter into my fishes' diets. I found a pellet that is made for shrimp, called 'invertebrate sticks.' http://www.ebay.com/itm/YFS-Invertebrate-Sticks-1mm-Shrimp-Fish-Food-1-2-LB-to-5-LBS-choose-size/251664303203?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D318606628d56431a9423f7eeec9741af%26pid%3D100005%26prg%3D20131003132420%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D331365085215&rt=nc Here is the list of ingredients and the guaranteed analysis for quick reference: Green Peas, Salmon Fish Meal, Soy-Meal Flours, Kelp Seaweed, Krill Meal, Spirulina, Celery, Carrots, Squash, Spinach and Broccoli. Brewers Yeast, Lecithin, Calcium, Vitamin/Mineral supplements plus Double Stabilized Vitamin "C", Methionine, No Preservatives. 38% Protein 7% Fat 7% Fiber 8% Moisture Next, I found another pellet food, but with more animal proteins. This one is made for marine fish. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Your-Fish-Mega-Marine-Small-Sized-Pellets-1-5mm-Saltwater-Fish-Food-1-2-Pound-/251095398310?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a7673b7a6 Herring Meal, Squid Meal, Krill Meal, Spiruliana, Chlorella Algae, Kelp Meal, Garlic, Yeast, Yeast Extract, DL Methionine, Brewers Dried Yeast, Lecithin, Paprika Oleoresin, Marigold Extract, Astaxanthin, Beta Carotene, Canthaxanthin,and vitamins and minerals 56% Protein 9% Fat 3% Fiber 10% Moisture The only thing that strikes me is that the protein is reeealllyy high! But if this is fed in moderation with other foods, I don't really see a problem. (i.e. : one food with 30% protein, one with 56% and one with 40% would average out to 42% protein overall) I was also looking into getting Hikari Lionhead before, but I feel like this food is better ingredient-wise over Hikari. Here is Hikari Lionhead's list of ingredients for comparison: Fish meal, wheat flour, krill meal, carotenoid fortifier, soybean protein, spirulina, seaweed meal, enzyme, DL-methionine, monosodium glutamate, garlic, and vitamins and minerals including stabilized Vitamin C. Let me know what you think! Thanks.
  3. So, I'm pretty sure you can freeze them, but I just want a second opinion. I recently bought some Omega One and New Life Spectrum, they're really good quality (and expensive!) foods, so I don't want to mess anything up. I opened them about a month ago, so I guess it's best to preserve some while it's still fresh. It expires in 2014, and there's no way I'll get through the whole container by then. I just have a few questions: ~How do you go about freezing it? Just put some in a ziploc bag? ~Does it lose it's taste and\or nutritional value when thawed? ~Does it become soggy when thawed? ~How long can the food last in the freezer? How long does it last when thawed? If there's any other methods of preserving pellets, please share. But I think I'm most comfortable by freezing it.
  4. I've heard that you should soak flakes and pellets momentarily before you feed them to your goldfish to prevent any swimbladder problems. But do you need to soak pellets? I've read that even pellets contain some air that the goldfish can't handle. Thx!
