    What fish food clouds the water less? Tetra Pond Sticks or Hikari Koi Wheat Germ. I also need to know why the one that clouds the water less clouds the water less.
    When you have a 12-inch bowl and a fish that gets up to 15 inches, it's obviously not going to fit.

    The best way to cloud the water less is to not overfeed, regardless of the kind of food. If the fish eat it all, your water won't stay cloudy for long.

    i know, but some food is better than other food. What food clouds the water less if you do not overfeed. I do not overfeed.

    hikari is generally the better brand. what type of fish do you want to feed
    i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
    they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
    that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

    No experience with either, but here are two factors that might contribute to food clouding the water.

    1. if the food has a lot of wheat, soy, potato, etc based fillers, a carnivorous fish may not be able to digest the food very well and it will excrete more waste and require more food to sustain itself. This can result in poorer water quality.

    2. depending on the composition of the ingredients, some flakes/pellets can disintegrate quicker than others.

    1+ to the above. Lesser quality seems to = cloudiness.
