Good quality fish food. Sept. 30 2011
By William E. Liberatore - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've used hikari gold for years and have always been happy with the results. The fish have always taken right to it and I've never had issues with cloudy water from leftovers. I do believe it helps to bring out the colors in the fish by contributing to keeping them happy and healthy. If you choose to buy it I hope you have results as good as I have had and thanks for taking the time to read my review.

Excellent Formula Chiclids Love Jan. 1 2013
By Peter Suslock - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've used Hikari for over thirty years with great results. Some of the other Hikari formulas have been down graded in protein and now carry MSG - However Cichlid Gold isn't one of them.

The best things about this food are that the first ingredient is white fish meal. It's important when evaluating any pet food that the source of animal protein is identified, in this case it's white fish. In addition many companies that manufactures pet foods get around certain guidelines by weighing the protein source prior to cooking. Being as raw meat is over 90% water prior to cooking what is often listed as the first ingredient - is in fact much lower on the list.

This Hikari formula lists "white fish meal" as the first ingredient making this food a step up in quality. I use this food in conjunction with Zoo-Meds Spirulina 20 which is incredibly rich in protein, amino acids and other essentials with virtually zero filler. This combination - with the addition of fresh blanched kale and other dark greens has brought their color out dramatically, the fish are wonderfully healthy and highly resistant to bacterial infections and other illness.

My 12" Red Devil and equally large Flowerhorn and Texas Red virtually do head stands when they see the Hiraki bag. My only complaint is the amount of filler including wheat. The first three ingredients of any fish food should without question be animal based protein. To it's credit it's free of Ethoxyquin which is often listed as a preservative but is in fact a pesticide. Which if you read the studies is especially lethal to fish - even in trace amounts. A good article can be found on Wiki-pedia which links to one of the above mentioned studies.

Perfect for My Big Red Parrot Fish July 8 2013
By Conspicuous Consumer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have a tank full of multi-sized cichlids that require different sized food. The Parrot Fish, however, will eat everything if I don't control the feeding.

I start off with these big pellets so that the Parrots' mouths are full when I add the medium pellets for the medium sized cichlids. Then I throw in the smallest sized pellets for the little fish.

Everyone's happy and healthy but I do admit to having to spend 45 minutes a week cleaning the tank. The combination of fish and food produces a lot of fish fertilizer (I throw the dirty water in the front yard and the grass looks great).

They really do love it. July 31 2013
By jeanne l buono - Published on Amazon.com

I bougth these for my two cichlid's based on the reviews thinking that it really won't make a difference. Turns out, they really do like this food. I'll put in flakes and then the pellets. They'll immediately abandon the flakes for these pellets. I'm glad I purchased it for them.
