However, these are the floating pellets, and Goldfish can develop swim bladder problems fairly easily, especially when gulping air from the surface in a mad rush to gobble up the food, so, I always soak these in some tank water, and squish them between my fingers some so that they sink to the bottom.
All in all, I love this stuff. My Goldies are bright and healthy, and the food does enhance headgrowth, as promised. Very pleased!
These are probably best for fish at least four inches long. My two smaller babies have a hard time eating the pellets because they are decently sized so I have to break them in halves with my thumb nail to keep them from being stuck in their mouth.
My only dislike is that these things smell. Whenever the package is open, you will be totally aware. If you drop them in your carpet, you better get the vacuum out as soon as possible.
These pellets are a good size, they just need to be pre-soaked for smaller goldies.
