    Eric,

    We had bought these cookies from petdiscounters awhile ago when they first came out. It is a good thing we did not use them as to our surprise when we viewed the label the cookies contain the preservative ETHOXYQUIN which is known to be harmful sometimes even fatel to hermies over time. Please read more about this in the HCRU forum Poison. Hope this helps.

    Best Regards,
    Cappa

    ETHOXYQUIN, we all need to get together and compose a big list of all the foods that are out there with no ETHOXYQUIN, theres lots of diffrent things we can use not only Hikari fish foods but there is others as well that do not contain this its just a matter of locating the sources plus there are some reptile pelleted foods that might not have it as well that we can use to. This is a very good subject and im going to be working on a good list of safe fish and reptile plus other foods as well that dont contain it and also that the hermies would like to eat. I also know that alot of bird treats dont have it as well..

    ETHOXYQUIN [​IMG] Not good. Thanks for the warning. We do need to compose a list CudaCrabby because alot of people do not know about ETHOXYQUIN [​IMG]. That is one of the reasons this board is awsome.
