i thought it was the same.
But i got to buy a new stash, for the sinkin pellets are allmost gone.
So i 'd like to hear the difference too.
my O just ate some pellets again, and he even took some floating ones this time.
Third day in a row. :woohoo:
Looks like he finally ready to eat the extra pellets, instead of me feeding them to his mealworms.
I wonder if the gutloaded worms teased his appetite for the Hikari pellets...

From what I gather the Bio-Gold is recommended by Hikari for full sized mature adults...although depending on the price differential it really doesn't seem like very much difference at all...

most marketer used marketing strategy to get more sales...that is no difference in
milk...infants formula...most of the time there are two name from same manufacturer,
one is intended for high end, the other for low income bracket people....the milk
is exactly identical in formula and contents but different labels..

Kinda pissed but I'm always nice about it...but putting a plec in with an Oscar who is more than 3 inches bigger is asking for trouble...I don't like seeing this Oscar eating the Plec. He's big enough to cause the Oscar some serious eating problems and anyways putting them together is a bad idea...This is a shame. Get a goddamn pleco who is big enough to defend itself or not make itself a target and there are no problems. Just have to say if you are new to Oscar's do NOT do this. Apparently, On YOUTUBE Oscar's are a good fish to experiment with feeding live...and that's just WRONG. Mice, frogs, feeders, Plecos...C'MON. It's NOT funny...and it's NOT cool. You can very easily kill your own fish doing something unnecessary and inhumane.

yes, and there's a big chance both fish will die, due to the pleco extending it's fins.
the owner of this dyed oscar can be happy he could still spit the pleco out.
As we had this one in a thread last week, and both did not survive...
