Grr! I had assumed everything was fine, and so I fed my Harleys their normal flakes and as soon as they'd eaten two of them have started to float upwards! I'll try the pea solution tomorrow, as soon as they eat this issue just comes back! :(

I wonder if they are gulping in air as they eat. Hopefully, it's just air bubbles again.

Possibly, they don't really give the flakes a chance to sink lol

They're fine now, they must be gulping air as they eat their food. I'll feed them peas tomorrow anyway, maybe as a treat more than a precaution.
