Thankyou for your response, although a very unsatisfying one.HikariSalesUSA;4831105; said:We use a proprietary blend of processed starch in this product which helps
us maintain the special characteristics and unique texture required for the
pellet to be ideal for the feeding activities of bigger carnivorous fish.
It also helps us lock the nutrition inside the pellet and avoid a negative
impact on the water quality during heavier feeding common with this type of
fish. The amount of carbohydrate, including the starch, in this formula is
precisely tuned to meet the requirements of the fish it is intended to be
fed to. Unfortunately, for competitive reasons we cannot disclose further
Forgive me, but a red flag raises in my brain, when a company refuses to tell me the very basic of an ingredient, that is potentially very harmful to my live animals, and can shorten theire lifespan by years.
It's just me, but if i was in your shoes in this situation, i would quickly shut down any rumor or speculation about my product potentially being harmful to the live animals, that i am advertising everywhere, that my product will ensure optimal health.
And i still cannot grasp, how this can possibly be turned against you by your competitors, unless ofcourse, you DO have something to hide from us, the consumers.
I thankyou for your attention in this thread, but regretably i must now seize all feedings of your product entirely, as i do not want to be responsible for killing my fish prematurely, by not knowing what i am putting in them.
