My only problem with the bio-gold is the size. The largest available pellet size is about the size of a small pea. For my 5 year old Oscar to get full on these pellets I need to feed a lot. Many of the small pellets are missed or go unnoticed and are left to float in a corner. Still, it is a great food. I just wish they would make them in a larger size.

I know what you mean, but it's not a problem for me. I trained both my prior Oscar and my current Oscar. I feed by hand, holding my hand over the water. The fish comes up to me. I have to time it right or he'll jump at my fingers, but I release a group of pellets and swoosh, the whole bunch is gone the moment it hits the water. Heck, I might have 10 or 15 pellets dropping at a time and "swoop", they're gone with an audible slurp. As a result, I don't have a significant issue with the pellet size. As I stated in my review, I somewhat consider the smaller pellet size as a benefit because nothing gets shot out the gills. No waste+increased nitrate without the benefit of providing nutrition.

At first I thought the small pellet size was going to be an issue, but as it turns out, like Kmuda said, there is actually a lot less waste.
