Unfortunately, there are no plans to make a larger pellet due to the fact that larger fish can easily eat the medium pellet without any issue and the smaller size can actually improve utilization. Please remember, a larger fish can always eat a smaller pellet but if a smaller fish were to take in a pellet that is too large for them serious health issues could result.

If you soak the floating Cichlid Bio-Gold+ pellets for a few minutes and then slightly squeeze each one before putting in aquarium they will sink quickly. A bit of a hassle, but one way to get them on the pellet. Once they have eaten it a few times they may come to the surface to get the pellets.

My 3ft barramundi having hard time to see medium sinking Gold pellets, and he scare me everytime he went up for the large Gold pellets. When he gulp the pellets, the pressure he produced lifts the lid! :nilly: It would be nice if there's large sinking Gold pellets

I'd love to see a small sinking Bio-Gold pellet offered.
