Floating Pellets

Can anyone recommend a floating pellet that actual floats? :censor: I tried the Nutrafin "floating" pellet and it "floats" right to the bottom. I am looking for recommendations before I go out and buy more food.

Thanks

If "floating" you mean "floating on surface of water", I have yet to see this. It's my understanding that the difference between a "floating pellet" and a "sinking pellet" is that the floater stays bouyant a little while longer than the sinker.

I would love to find a food that does remain on the water surface. Would make feeding so much easier and less waste/mess entering substrate.

All that I have tried sinks. But it does help if you take the pellets and cut em in half with your fingernail..

Do you want cichlid pellets? I feed Omega One floating cichlid pellets and Hikari floating cichlid pellets. They always float, you should check them out.

My hikari cichlid pellets always float, the only time they ever sank was after squeezing after soaking for several hours.

I found some tropical fish pellets that float (Big Als Brand Floating Pellets) available in small and large pellet sizes. My fish don't like them. Guess I'm stuck with flakes for a staple.

Wardley cichlid pellets (the mid sized ones) and spirulina (sp) floating pellets actually do float. I found this out becuase I fed my fish some spirulina pellets only to find them still floating 24 hours later. I figured they either just didn't like them or weren't hungry.
