Fancy Goldfish Color Enhancing Formula 7 oz
Although a bit pricey, this product is by far the most incredible in terms of overall gains in goldfish growth, color, and health. Within 2 weeks of feeding this to my goldfish, they grew nearly a quarter of an inch in size. If only Hikari made this product in a larger pellet size for bigger goldfish!

Saki-Hikari Fancy Goldfish pellets - an awesome product packed full of vitamins and great taste your fish will love!
The Saki-Hikari Fancy Goldfish small sinking pellets are one of the most innovative and awesome gold fish food in the market. It is made by Kyorin in Japan and have a unique blend of Hikari germ that carries beneficial pro-biotics for your goldfish's convoluted intestines plus spirulina that enhances color. The Hikari germ will aid in quick digestion and overwhelms bad bacteria so the poop will not cloud water.
I have been feeding these pellets to my Orandas for years and they love it. My fish can never seem to get enough and because the pellets sink to the bottom, there is less chance of the fish gulping in air when feeding. Orandas are prone to swim bladder disease so this is one great product that aids in prevention of such a terrible disease that often leads to death (I have lost 3 fish to swim bladder in the past). I also now combine cooked, peeled peas and these Hikari pellets as their main staple and they work great together. I hope this review is helpful to some as it was to me. Thank you.

Love this food
I've had goldfish off and on for many years. After talking to my fish store and reading a bunch online, this appears to be the best food out there for goldfish. My fish love this food however I do feed it every other day between flakes of spirulina. One day a week (Sundays) I do not feed them at all. My fish are growing, are lively, and look fantastic. Hikari makes the best foods.

Great goldfish food!
I have been using the sinking pellets ("baby stick") for ~6 months and my 9-inch comet goldfish eats it with gusto! The fish has grown well and is healthy. Note, my aquarium substrate is comprised of very small, smooth pebbles with no jagged edges, no sand, and no silt, so is safe for the goldfish to "vacuum" for food. I started using this food after reading that sinking pellets would be healthier for such a large goldfish, and observing that my goldfish was already spending time every day instinctively searching for food in the pebbles. I chose small pellets so that the pellets would be more easily digested. The food has met and exceeded all expectations.
