Fish food flakes are the staple food of choice for most goldfish owners, and you can’t go wrong if you stick to the mantra of little and often. Nutritionally, flakes are the same as pellets, and a sprinkling of food several times a day mimics the natural feeding pattern of a grazing goldfish. Flakes rapidly break up and sink to the gravel, encouraging your fish to hunt for its food. It’s easy to overfeed with flakes, and uneaten food becomes a mushy mess in the gravel; net out the leftovers after about five minutes to keep the tank water clean.

Pellets for goldfish are low in protein and fat, but high in veggie content to keep your pet’s digestive system in good shape. Pellets dissolve slowly, which helps to keep aquarium water clean. You can easily scoop out uneaten food that sinks to the bottom. Pellets come in floating and sinking varieties. Goldfish are equally happy to feed from the surface or the substrate. They just love food, and will hunt it down wherever it lands. Omega One Small Sinking Goldfish Pellets Fish Food 2.75-Lbs.

Simply browse through the fish aisle at your local pet store, and you’ll see dozens of commercial goldfish food cans on display, most of which are dry food. Some are specially formulated to sink in the water, while others naturally float at the top of the aquarium.It’s always good to have sinking pellets on hand to make sure all of your fishy friends get a bite. Since floating dry food can cause goldfish to suck in packets of air, some fish hobbyists only offer their goldfish to avoid problems – like buoyancy and swim bladder issues (which fancy goldfish are especially prone to).Goldfish graze at both the top and bottom of the aquarium. Though, they do spend most of their time energetically sifting through the substrate for any tasty tidbits they might have missed. Unless your or sensitive to buoyancy problems, both floating and sinking food will do just fine.Ultimately the brand of goldfish food you choose is up to you. If you have trouble making up your mind, you can always feed your goldfish both floating flakes and sinking pellets (variety is always a good way to go).Wardley® Advanced Nutrition™ Perfect Protein™ Goldfish Slow Sinking Crumbles Food is the first fish food designed to provide the ideal balance of the essential amino acids your fish require without over-supplementing protein. Formulated to maximize protein utilization and reduce fish waste, these slow sinking crumbles are perfect for tanks that have top, mid-water and bottom feeders.They are eating Saki-Hikari fancy goldfish sinking pellets. I really like this food for them. It has probiotics in it and the pellets are a nice small size, which I think can help to prevent them from blocked up in the intestines. The pellets float for a few moments before sinking, so I use the ring part from a worm feeder to keep them from getting sucked in to the overflow box.
