    Sinking Pellets

    I'd appreciate any recommendations regarding various sinking pellets. I find I am feeding more sinking foods. (Skimmers too efficient!) Far more variety of choice among floating pellets.

    funny Mike, I have the opposite problem. I feed floating and sinking hikari wheat germ as it seems to offer foods to the aggressiive and timid in the pond. My bottom drain sucks it up so fast that I often find half in the sump. Still i think it has it's value.

    Sinking pellets good in feeders

    I also prefer sinking pellets in my audotmatic koi feeder to keep them out of the skimmer. However, my source is no longer available. I feed floating pellets when I hand feed. I would also appreciate comments on sources for good sinking pellets. I'm trying a new food source but they don't make sinking pellets yet.

    Gene at KoiVillage.com sells sinking pellets. He carries Hikari for sure, not certain about others.

    MikeM here's a link from ebay.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...980529095&rd=1

    Koi Lagoon has the sinking pellets for auction and I have won a couple of their auctions and still saved $15 with shipping. So check it out.
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.
