Can't answer for tetra ranchu specifically but I use tetra goldfish gold pellets and they're brilliant.

Incase that was a question for me.It's the best I can get anywhere near me and judging by the general makeup I think it's pretty good. I describe it as brilliant because it's affordable, doesn't float and is well balanced.

It's made specifically for fancy goldfish and here's the info on label...

Composition: vegetable protein extracts, fish and fish derivatives, wheat germ meal, yeasts, oils and fats, minerals.

Analytical constituents: crude protein 47%, crude oils and fats 10%, crude fibre 2%, moisture content 8%

I'm guessing the same sort of thinking is being done by dankriscurly

Thanks for more info.

My only comments are:

1. Vegetable proteins should not be the first thing on the list.

2. This food is too high in proteins.

What are the health ramifications of the above points?

Well, I think there is good evidence, not just in fish, but in other animals, too, that not all proteins are created equal, and you want the ones that work best for your fish. For example, peas are pretty high in proteins, but it's not the right kinds of proteins. Blood worms are high in proteins, and the right kind, so they help goldfish more.

For food, you want to aim to have about 30-40% protein max. For younger fish/fry, this is different.

That is the point I was trying to make earlier. Wheat is not exactly the ideal to feed your fish, nor is floating food.

This is far from a the diet a goldfish would have in the wild, unfortunately.

I think it's time for one of my favorite of Steve's articles. :)

Please, take a look at these. They should explain quite a bit of what Alex is saying.

Thank you ChelseaM. The articles have put me at ease about the pellets.

Because each of my fish are fed 3-5 pellets each a day, have a fasting day once a month and have supplementary veg every other day, the protein content of the pellets is not a problem.
