Ingredients & Guaranteed Analysis: Commonly Fed Goldfish Pellets

Recommended Posts

This is a list with some of the most commonly used goldfish "staple" pellets as seen throughout this site and others around the world. This was not compiled for the purpose of critique, but as a reference for current and potential fishkeepers.

Some of these products did not have comprehensive lists of ingredients available online and are directly from the back of current packaging. These lists were typed out by hand on my iPad, and thus may have minor grammatical errors.
As with all ingredient lists, the ingredients are listed from most abundant in a product to the least abundant.

All brand names and lines of aquatic nutrition are the property of their respective companies and the lists below lists are strictly for educational and informative purposes.

 Awesome! Mine just arrived and it appears its part floating and part sinking. My girls don't seem to mind, and I support mental stimuli for them. :)

Mega Marine is a big hit with them as well. Hoping to try some new foods throughout this year.

 

Has anyone heard of Paradigm fish food? It looks wonderful but there aren't many reviews I'm seeing:

http://www.shop.paradigmfishfood.com/Paradigm-Omnivore-3-lbs-OMNI16.htm

It looks to be rather new. I wish it came in pellets or even a gel mix..

A crumble sounds like one heck of a mess.. :(

Yeah when I fed my goldies the Southern Delight most of the pellets sank but a few pellets floated on the surface and a few of them sort of sank slowly floating around in the filter's current. That was good exercise for my goldies as they chased after them before slurping them up :teehee

Chai - as far as I can tell from the YouTubes they have, it isn't crumbly like a cracker and doesn't seem to leave detritus in the tank (I have that issue with my repashy super green - it actually makes quite a mess as the fish chew, chomp, spit, and rechew the bits). It seems more like you just break off the appropriate sized pellet from bigger cooked wafers as needed, but not that it necessarily crumbs up in the tank.

I have a variety of tanks to feed, that was one of the reasons it appealed to me :o

So far my girls are diggin Mega Marine (great poops!) and my new guppies are big fans of the Saki Red. Baby pellets are perfect for their tiny mouths. :)

Up next for trial is Paradigm and another YFS food.

Haven't quite found our perfect staple food. :idont
