Taiyo and other chinese Foods

Unread postby Naufil » Sat Jan 24, 2015 8:42 pm

I wanted to know if the cheap fish foods that are sold as staple diet for fish by most LFS in Delhi are of any worth or not.
I am surely not implying that cheap=bad because by experience I know that high price is not a qualifier for good quality.
It is just that these products don't feel that 'trust-able to me'. If you look at the back labels, all text is misspelt.
Then, there is nutritional value chart but I don't know if it is any more correct than the spellings.
So all in all I don't know if it is just colored flour pellets or is it real fish food.
I would be glad to know if it is worth feeding to fish or not?

Some of the products in question:

Most of the cheap foods are slow death for fishes. It is best to feed only the quality and branded foods for your fishes.

best is give tetrabit, that too buy from known source as there are instances of fake tetra bits being sold. You can buy the hikari also. I always buy either from laxmi nagar or there is vinit desi on ebay he is hikari distributor if not wrong based out of pune

Yes good pricing indeed, most products are free shipping.

Also what about Sera products, are they good too?
