    I have only ever used OF and have never found a viable alternative - why can't you use them?

    I was enjoying being active on their forum .. then after a few misunderstanding I appear to be banned .. so will nor give them my money now for the food.

    I would recommend you buy the best sturgeon food for the health and welfare of your sturgeon. And you know full well where to get it

    I have only purchased one pk of OF food, so will go back to my old brand .. As I am banned from the site I don't expect they would take my order and I am not giving them the pleasure or refusing my order.
    I have only had my sturgeon for 18 years and he only had the OF food for a few months .. so he's not going to miss it.
    Just wondered what others feed their sturgeons ...

    Is it correct that orchard fisheries offer a 10% discount for active forum members?

    Unfortunately you wont. I visited them just before Christmas and they were shutting down. Great shame though as they had some stunning sturgeon in their ponds. I would say still try to contact them as they did still have a fair bit of food left. Even after I bought about 20 kilos from them. Real shame they are giving up.
    however Orchard fisheries are still probably the best and most trusted.

    New Orchard Fisheries is not the same as Orchard Fisheries. Make sure you only buy genuine Orchard Fisheries food which is excellent for sturgeon- the copycat company is not to be trusted (I would never buy from any company that tries to con consumers with a similar trade name).

    sturgeon food pellets are very hard does any one know if sturgeon just swallow the food and let it simply digest or have they a way of braking it down .

    i always used O/F when i had sturgeon,not being funny here but if you send them an email asking why you were banned this may sort things out,also the forum is run apart from the company,you may have been banned by an over zealous mod,ive had this on a car forum before and soon got sorted,dont let your pride hurt your fish,the deserve the best and not a cheap copy,andi
