How all,

My fish are getting big and my kids won't let me eat them.....

I'm buying fish feed from Oz at Big Nutrtion. There postage is quite pricey.

It cost me $70 per 20kg plus $30 postage.
If I double the amount my postage also doubles.

Believe it or not 20kg doesn't last that long. I'm rationing the feed to stretch it out. But I think I'm not feeding the fish enough. As they appear always hungry and they are polishing the food very quickly.

Is there any cheaper alternatives. The postage is a killer......

If they are too young to count you could alway knock a few on the head when it is there nap time :twisted: . Just need to wrap them in plastic an put an inflated price tag on them, they'll never know :thumbright: .

Sorry to hijack with a joke, I can't help with your feed question.

That's typical pricing for pellets and freight, I pay similar for pellets from Qld or Tasmania, usually buying 100kg at a time

what is your freight for 100kg.


If it means buying more to cut down freight cost. I'm all good for that...

Only a few dollars less than 5X what it is for 20kg, buying more bags doesn't make a lot of difference to cost per kg. Buying more in one go does mean I only have to do the 80km round trip to pick it up fewer times, since StarTrack wont deliver to me, I have to drive to their depot.

Yeah that pricing for pellets and freight should be fair.
