From the early ’90s I always used a “red granular type of famous brand name” sinking food for my fish. This includes the fish I kept as pets and laterally the fish that were kept as stock fish for sale in The Fish Hut. It was accepted by most of my fish but had the annoying habit of dying the water pink!
A friend of mine – whom I knew with my projects with cephalopods (Octopuses and Cuttlefish) – strongly recommended that I give New Era a try as it was a new and innovative type of fish food. It had been a long time since I had ever used a traditional flake food so I was initially dubious. However, this flake food is totally different. For a start it comes as big flakes so whether I am feeding fry or a 12″ gourami I can either add the flakes whole or crumble it up for the smaller fish. Secondly, the flake is moist and not bone dry. That was quite a surprise but the fish seem to prefer this as they can immediately guzzle it down as it hits the water. Also, I can take the moist cichlid pellets and roll them into bigger balls and drop them in for large fish without any waste.
My own interest in fish keeping revolves around labyrinths and specifically the Betta species. I have successfully kept and bred Betta macrostoma – which is often seen as one of the most difficult fish species to keep and breed in the home aquarium – and New Era is the only dry food they will take. Specifically they will eat the New Era flakes, discus pellets and American cichlid pellets.
Anyway, I really do like this range of food and can wholeheartedly recommend them to other fish keepers and breeders
I also keep and sell discus including wild discus and Altum angles who also eat these discus pellets.
