I like and feed the Hikari line, mostly the purple. I also feed 3mm high quality koi pellets to my addult fish, the hikari pellets are just too small for them and they just swallow them whole. I use a sinking 3mm wheatgerm 'health' pellet as a staple in the adults diet, it has pre- and probiotics, beta-glucans added and extra vitamins and minerals and is extremely digestable.

I feed Saki Hikari (purple bag) and Hikari lionhead, my goldies love them both and the pellets are a good size for small fish. Apart from pellets I also feed Repashy Soilent Green gel food, frozen bloodworms, veggies, algae wafers as a treat and dried seaweed sheets.

I also recently got a bag of ProGold but I'm not a fan to be honest. You can't soak them without them completely disintegrating and making a mess, and they make my goldies poo all crumbly and messy! : lol

What I do is go on Amazon and buy a few different types of sinking pellets and then mix them all together. I like Hikari and New Life Spectrum.

This is what I do...I mix Hikari Lionhead with NLS Thera A and sometimes Omega One 1mm pellets.

I use Hikari (Green mostly) and a few different others.

I love the "NatureFoods" fancy goldfish food. Looks whole wheat to me :) so dark and sinks very well. Think its german made.

All the food that doesn't work for me and the fish - i just use in the gelfood :)

Out of interest, does anyone else find that the Goldfish connection ProGold pellets make their fish' poo crumbly? Or is it just mine?

Nope. I used ProGold for quite a long time (never soaked) and my fish had very healthy poop.

I give mine Saki Hikari (Purple Bag). I started with yucky generic sinking pellets from the LPS I bought my first 3 from but I changed it after two weeks. I have to say my horde really like the Saki Hikari and I've had very good growth and minimal health problems. That being said I don't just feed pellets but also Repashy Super Green, frozen bloodworms and assorted frozen stuff as well as the occasional fresh veg - mainly peas.

Hmm interesting. They're fine with anything else I feed them, they're poo just goes noticeably crumbly (like the pellets are) whenever I give them ProGold :idont

I have never had crumbly pro-gold unless it has been soaked for a long time. I think that maybe the consistency is what is causing the malformed poops. Its unfortunate that ProGold isn't being made anymore, though. That was my preferred pellet for a long while.

No wen will grow unless she has the genes for it.

Oranda and Goldfish gold both float, to my knowledge, and therefore are not much good to fancy goldfish. Sinking pellets are the way to go.
