The pellets swell and they go a long way: for my 3 little guys I take a wafer the size of a flattened pea, break it into 2-3 pieces and drop it onto a soft, sandy spot. As they clean the bottom of the tank they come across them and nibble from time to time. As they get bigger I'll add a 3rd to my daily regiment, but fish eat surprisingly little.

Approximately 83.5% of statistics are untrue.
