Why Should You Choose Hikari?

At Hikari®, we are known for originating the term Species Specific™ diets for a very important reason. We know that different species of fish require specific nutrient to look and feel their best. We work diligently to bring scientifically developed formulations to the market rather than  a one-size-fits-all food like so many others.

But don’t just take our word for it—here are what our customers have experienced with our products.

Our Best Information Resource ~ Our Customers

Like many, Raul was exploring different brands for his fish and trying to see what would be the best fit for them. After purchasing Saki-Hikari® Marine Carnivore pellets for his marine fish he found his fish vastly preferred our food over many competitors.

“Saki-Hikari® Marine Carnivore pellets are so good that my fish prefer it over 3 other very well recognized brands. If I feed the 4 brands at the same time they eat Saki-Hikari® pellets only and they let the other pellets fall to the bottom of the tank.”

Our Saki-Hikari® Marine Carnivore is the result of many years of research at our marine fish breeder facility formulating the ideal nutrient mix and our proprietary probiotic for marine carnivores. Your fish will not only enjoy the taste of the pellets, but you can be comfortable in the knowledge that your marine carnivores are receiving a nutrient package ideally suited for their needs.

And for some like Matt, the concern went beyond just his fish enjoying their food but to more serious issues like why his fish kept getting ammonia poisoning. After using a number of different water conditioners he could not figure out why he was still losing fish. After using our Ultimate® water conditioner, he noticed an immediate difference.

“I have just done three consecutive water changes and switched to Hikari® Ultimate® water conditioner. The fish show no signs of stress. Chlorine dissipates faster and my fish show no signs of ammonia poisoning. I owe Hikari® a giant thank you. It looks like I’ve finally resolved the mystery.”

Our Ultimate® water conditioner is an all-in-one, full-function water treatment solution that gives you all you need to maintain a safe environment for your fish with just one product.

For Stephanie and her betta fish, a few years on our Betta Bio-Gold® has made all the difference.

“My bettas are absolutely beautiful thanks to your food! Bettas can be very picky but mine ate this food from day one with no problems.”

For many owners finding food that their fish enjoy is one thing, but it also has to be food that is designed to provide the nutrition their fish need. If you are looking for food your fish will love and is tailored to their specific needs check out the species specific™ diets we offer.
