Positive aspects of the product (pros): Well liked by Discus
Cons: Small pellets good for smaller Discus but not larger

The small pellets are great for my small (but growing) discus. They use to sell larger pellets but I can't find them. Discus love these pellets. They float but by putting them under water, sink right away - this is useful for deciding where pellets go in a big tank.

Knowledge is fun(damental)

A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
