I haven't used the pellets or sticks. The flakes come in big pieces, almost like sheets.

Omega one DOES make a veggie pellet. It's called Omega One super kelp pellets. I use it and love it! I hate flakes...so messy and by the time you reach the bottom of the container what's left is a powder.

I've never had a problem with kens flakes or sticks dissolving, but then again my fish usually gobble everything up immediately.

I've been thinking about getting some of Ken's pellets, would you recommend them? Fast dissolving has me kinda worried. How fast is fast?

I actually really like kens sticks, the 5 stick blend is nice as well as the veggie stick+ calcium. They do begin to break down after a few minutes like most other extruded sticks do. Angelsplus has some really nice spirulina sticks that hold up a lot better if you have slow eaters.
