So far so good

All my catfish love em. Some of my other fish eat them also. Great product.

All My Fish Love It

I have a 55 gallon community tank with pleco's, cory cats, loaches, guppies, and black skirt tetras and everyone goes for this stuff! Everyone comes out of hiding when I feed this. I only have one big box store near me that carries it and they're always out of stock when I need it (and way more expensive too) so now I just buy it from the lovely folks at aquarium co-op. Aquarium co-op may not be "local" to me but I feel better giving Cory all my money than PetSchmo.

great food

all my bottom dwellers love it

The only food I see my Raphael cat go for

I know my Raphael cat eats. I've had him for years, and if he *didn't* eat, that'd be a problem. But I've never seen him eat until I got these. He actually will leave his cave for a brief minute to grab these. My BN pleco loves them, too. It's great fun watching him pounce on them to keep them away from the mollies. The mollies will swim around with them in their mouths like cigars. I love it. Great food, great quality.

Can't go wrong with Bug Bites

They do stink but my fish love them!
