I use the floating pellet. My issue is a 14" Pearsei trying to eat 2mm pellets.

The ingredients for the wafers are almost identical to the pellets. I used them to ward off the sd's when feeding. You could break them up and they are still pretty large. Porkchop might like em

What brand of freeze dried krill do you use? I'd think krill are krill, but my oscar feels differently about that. I had been using the krill on the left (tetra) for soaking in vitachem and my oscar loved it. I bought some that were all broken up so I tried the brand on the right which is the same thing ... freeze dried krill. But I've tried it twice now and he just chews one a few times and spits it back out.

I already use the Omega One wafers, and she doe like them. Just would prefer a larger floating version of the kelp pellet.

Ive used both of those brands and my Oscar seemed to like the San Francisco Bay brand better too. The Tetra is not bad but something about it gets more spit outs than the other. I can say the absolute wort Ive used so far is the Omega One FD Krill. It was just globs of krill and you could not even distinguish what you were feeding. Also the fish hated it. Ive read that the Kens Fish brand (the more expensive one they carry) of FD Krill is supposed to be one of the best.

+1. I tried the omega one a long time ago and it didn't compare to these brands. It was mostly all broken up and the pieces that weren't were much smaller.

i've tried ken's FD Krills - you can tell the difference from the smell ... it's VERY pungent compared to SF and Tetra
