    Oh you mean the other companies that make Golden Pearls? Yeah I think some do have fillers, but I'm talking about the ones from Ken's Fish specifically...

    That is my understanding, however, I have seen some that do have fillers in them-It just depends on what company makes them.

    So....GPs don't have fillers because of the technology that went into making them?

    Golden pearls usually contain several different larva, fish, squid encased in air pockets to mimic live foods..not a highly processed fish food per se and I wouldn't expect them to have other ingredients, however, several on the market that have different ingredients that do include fillers. Just depends on which one you have. Same as with some of the freeze dried type foods like bloodworms-usually don't have fillers-It all depends on how, who made it.

    Well then how do Golden Pearls not have wheat or starch in them? There is no wheat or starch in them...

    You are correct....fillers are needed to help hold the food together otherwise they would fall apart as soon as they hit the water. Lots of things are added to fish foods and not all are bad for our fish as they are made out to be. Some additives are needed-some improve the food, stability and uptake. On your better brands of fish foods...a lot of scientific research went into the development. We hear a lot of negative thing about some fish foods-more due to that hobbyist associating a fish problem with feeding it-when it really didn't have anything to do with it.

    Hello OFL, I was reffered to you for a question about food! I recently have discovered Golden Pearls by Ken's fish and I noticed they are the only pellet (or flake or granule) type food that doesn't have any starch or grain product in it. This is great and everything, but I thought pellet foods had to have some type of grain or starch to hold their pellet shape...Am I misinformed about that? Thanks.
