I recently adopted a common goldfish who is currently 8 inches and she doesnt even notice my Hikari Lionhead pellets, what is the best food for larger fish?

Same foods, just more of it! My big girls love their saki hikari red which is a 1/2mm baby pellet, same food that I feed my guppies as its the perfect size of their mouths. :rofl3

You can also try feeding them NLS, it comes in different sizes if you'd like to try a bigger pellet. A smaller pellet is better for digestion, though. :)

She is healthy I think she isn't used to sinking foods she seems to browse the surface of the water for food as opposed to looking at the floor all the time haha

That takes some time, yup. :) Also if there's sand and they've never seen it before... It's like a completely alien thing to them and they're like "I am supposed to eat off this???".. Eventually nature instincts take over and they're sifting through it for food like intended.

They'll get the hang of it with time... Food from the bottom will make total sense to them in no time! :heart
