    Depends on what your feeding, if your are feeding brants like Tetra and Wardley...then yes definitely. If you are feeding Hikari, Sera, Ocean Nutrition, OSI...then meh you wont see a difference in fish health.

    That really isnt a bad diet for the fish, you could add some kens to it if you like.

    Let me add my praise for Ken's. All my fish inhale the Spirulina. I feed tropical flakes to my barbs & tetras & cichlid flakes to the mbuna. The extra 1/2 lb bags keep in the freezer. Super fast delivery, he responds quickly to emails. He's a great guy, you won't be disappointed. I'll be re-ordering more next month.

    I'm waiting for my first supply of Kens Fish Food to come. I ordered Natural Tropical Flake Frenzy. I should have also ordered some cichlid food too but didn't.

    Anyway, it should arrive tomorrow. I have a question... I want my food to last longer and hear that you can put the flakes in the freezer. Never done that before and am wondering do you split the food up in smaller baggies and then place them in the freezer?

    I hear so many good things about his food so I'm hoping that my fish will like it!

    Reviving an older thread, I ran across this one and didn't feel the need to open a new one.

    I want to add Ken's into my feeding rotation for my eight tiger barbs. I've read too many good things to pass up. Currently I'm feeding them:

    Hikari micro pellets - daily staple
    Frozen tubifex worms - snack several times/week
    Frozen daphnia - snack several times/week
    Hikari mini algae wafers - two every 1-2 days

    I'm thinking about either rotating between the Hikari and Ken's pellets for the staple, but don't know which to go for. I'm also considering just swapping out the micro pellets entirely because I feel they are a bit too small for the barbs, although they seem to really love them! Will the 1.5mm pellets from Ken's be a better size for them?

    So, asking for recommendations on possible Ken's pellet to add to the existing rotation or possilby a new staple to replace my current staple.

    Sure glad this thread come back to life. I was about to order more fish food in the morning and had forgotten about Kens. So, I canceled $15 worth of food and went to Kens and spent $50. LOL Lots of different stuff to order there and my fish will be having a smörgåsbord.

    Hope they make the bags!

    The only complaint I have about about Ken's is it breaks down in water very quickly, especially the pellets. This makes a mess in the tank and increases maintenance time. I have seen people on other boards with the same complaint.

    Not all fish will eat in 2-3 minutes and some are very messy eaters. I've had better luck with some of the other brands of food Ken's carries.

    Hmmm... that's something to think about. The barbs eat quick, but the're not gentle abotu it. I don't want them tearing up their food and having a bunch of debris settling down. I wish there was a way to get samples from Ken. I really don't want to end up with 1/2 pound of food, albeit it doesn't cost much... but that's just a lot of food!
