"Works very good."

I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. Much better price than at the big box pet store. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. They float well, so he can play more. I'll definitely keep buying the TetraFin flakes.

"They love it tho."

It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. My son in law feeds this exclusively and he said his fish love it as well. I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried.

"My fish love this food."

I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. The Petco store was out of that brand. I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes.

"Nice in water holds nice."

Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. Please be good to each other people. I regularly purchase this and am very happy with the product. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. I regularly purchase this and am very happy with the product.

"Especially my shrimp."

You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills.

"I highly recommend!"

Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. If you have a lot of fish, it works well. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend.

"My tank is a 55 gallon."

It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. Other than that it is a great product and I will continue to buy it for my fish. It keeps the fish healthy and colorful. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again.

"I did not taste the food."

It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. Overall a great deal, for great fish food. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home.

"My fish love all of them."

It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. The company and brand of Tetra has been my go to for products for years. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed.

"Absolute bargain, too."

When I purchased this food, I thought it was the small container. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. I can only get little one in local stores for alot more money. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites.

"My rule of thumb is."

We've tried most of the brands too. Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! They are loving more this product more than flakes. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. It keeps the fish healthy and colorful. The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. My fish liked it from the start, and TetraFin has kept improving it over the years.

Fish color and health are all good. I regularly purchase this and am very happy with the product. Please be good to each other people. I like how the packaging can be resealed. Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months.

"And the bag is so big."

Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Will definitely be purchasing this product from Amazon from here on out. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. Lesson learned, but this will work for now.

"Point taken."

They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. If you have picky fish, the texture and flavor might be a little challenging. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes.

"My fish love all of them."

Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. Such an awesome value for the money! They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff! They come out of their hiding spots almost as soon as it hits the water.

"And they love it."

The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. I can easily crumple it small or to any size for the little mouths. I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks. My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it. My son in law feeds this exclusively and he said his fish love it as well.

However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. I don't even have to worry about my fish when away on vacation.
