Hikari wafers cause some plecos to look bloated.
I'd never use that garbage again

I don't know dude. Hikari makes very high quality food. Whatever pick any other wafer brand and do a controlled test.

I say it causes fish to look bloated from experience.
Other panaque keepers have posted about having bloated panaque and when asked what they're feeding they say hikari. They stop using it and the fish no longer look bloated.
It's not an uncommon experience with their wafers.

As for their food being high quality there are many threads out there saying the total opposite. they have a big name and a so so product IMO

As for NLS I tried the H2o and it was not even touched. The NLS mega fish is eaten up like they have been starved. it's my first choice now.

The northfin kelp pellets are awesome and my plecos love them as well. Same goes for the veggie pellet and carnivore disc they're great foods.

HBH was another I used in the past and it was also liked a lot by the fish.

Not saying u didn't experience it but usually bloating is from over feeding from my experience or a royal just having a good old time all night on a big piece of veggie. Then they spend the next two days dumping it all out. On the Internet u can find something negative on any subject. Toyota cars are considered good but there are tons of forums negative on Toyota. Those food brands one think is good there is always a thread that thinks the opposite. Just my two cents. I have fed nls wafers no problems. The only reason I don't feed anymore wafers is its too much food sometimes in one piece and one tends to over feed if you have a big tank with allot of plecos. So u try and throw in allot so every pleco can get one. I think smaller nls food is better. Everyone gets some and less over feeding.

Usually is the key word.

I can over feed with all the others I mentioned and I have never seen a bloated fish like I and other have experienced with hikari.

Toyotas suck because they cost too much to insure lol

I agree though that you can find bad things being said on the Internet about anything but it's not just words it's comparisons I'm talking about and there is proof backing them. MFK has a bunch of threads worth reading about pellets.

I personally really like NLS

Yah for the price and quality I think nls is good. Hikari is too expensive I think as well.
