Is Massivore Worth it for my fish?

Is it worthwhile to drop $45 on a bag of Massivore for my fish, or should i stick to Hikari Cichlid Gold Sinking Pellets?

Issue is: fish get bigger (duh) and i have to feed more and more of the small pellets. They also miss a few, which is more bioload.

Is there any health benefits to one or the other.

Fish are quite big enough for Massivore yet, but im planning ahead lol.

Are you limited to that one brand?
I use Omega One. It comes in several sizes in a smaller package.

Im looking for larger pellets... I mean, Massivore is something close to 1/5 of an inch in diameter maybe? Maybe 1/6 is more accurate? Its big.

The tiny pellets are already starting to become a bit of an issue...

This is the bag I have..

On Amazon it's a bit less..

Hikari Usa Inc AHK22036 Massivore Delite 13.4-Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000RFPRJW..._sl8AwbSZ1XF64


In 6 months with a Jack Dempsey she only ate 1-2 pellets a day. And if you feed a variety that's even less. The bag lasts much longer than you think it does. I still have over half the bag since I bought it in February.

Hikari also makes Carnivore, which is the nearly identical with the only major difference is Massivore is for larger specimens. What fish are you feeding?
