I just got my hands on a bag of Saki-Hikari and tried it for the first time this morning. I'm hoping very much that the teeny-tiny pellets will help my super-sensitive floaty calico Ranchu with her issues.
If the Saki-Hikari does half of what it claims on the bag, then WOW. Should be some seriously wonderful food. Knowing that an expert like Daryl uses it makes me feel pretty good about it, too.
To get Hikari Oranda Gold to sink (I bought it by mistake once), soak in water before feeding, then squeeze the air out of the pellets before dropping them in the tank. It's a total pain, but it does make them sink.
Wonder if we got our calico ranchus from the same source (Super sensitive floaty calico ranchus) LOL.....
