Hikari Feeding Suggestions
- Feed no more than your tank inhabitants will consume within two minutes - 2 to 3 times a day.
- No food should remain after the two minutes. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding.
- Try soaking Marine-A in a cup of purified water for a few minutes prior to feeding. This will make the pellets elastic and sponge-like resembling the foods your fish would instincually eat.
- Pellets will not crumble or fall apart during feeding and is readily accepted by most finicky marine fishes.

Phosphate-rich By Tyler on 8/25/2016Tyler wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe food is okay and my aggressive fish tended to eat it pretty well. I currently only have 2 fish and would only give 1 or two pellets a day (in a 40 breeder with 20 gallon sump). After a few days, my phosphates shot up to 0.55 ppm! After a few water changes and switching back to frozen food and some GFO I am back to lower phosphates. The convenience of pellets isn't worth the phosphate problems in an SPS tank. Mabye in a fish only, softie, or MAYBE an LPS tank these would be okay.
Good sinking food By Ray on 4/28/2016Ray would recommend this product to a friendFood sinks slowly giving fish enough time to catch it before it goes into the over flows. The only bad thing is that the pellets are kinda big for Juvenal fish. I had to brake them up so my small and medium fish could eat them.
Jury Still Out By BH on 12/18/2015BH would recommend this product to a friendThe food is packaged nicely and works well as it relates to feeding after soaking a few minutes in RO/DI water; however, none of my fish will eat it. That said, I don’t blame the food, as my fish have only been fed frozen foods for years. I intend to keep trying as I want an option for auto fish feeders when I am out of town.
Great Fish Food By mmReefs on 12/13/2015mmReefs would recommend this product to a friendI'd been using this for years with great results and healthy fishes. What I like is that it is very neutral in saltwater, allowing it to sink slowly and giving time to fish to take it. If you need it to float more just soak it in freshwater for a minute before using them.
excellent By brian on 12/14/2014brian would recommend this product to a friendFish love it. Noticed more active feeding. Pellets are a little big for smaller fish
Yellow Tang & Clownfish give Hikari an A+ By Rick on 11/23/2014Rick would recommend this product to a friendIce cream to the fish. I feed mixed with mysis shrimp, emerald entree, and other veggie pellets and they always snatch up the Hikari pellets first.
Good stuff By Magic on 6/2/2014Magic would recommend this product to a friendI've been feeding all my fish and shrimps Hikari for the longest time. They prefer it over all other foods and wont touch any other pellets. They are all big and fat :)... I just soak some in RODI water before feeding to make it a bit soft.
