"They gobble these up."

Don't hesitate, get it before you can't. This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs.

Lakeway Tilapia Final Thoughts

"I indicted Tetra Min."

I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too.

Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. I'll definitely keep buying the TetraFin flakes. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs.

I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. Overall, I would recommend this food if someone asked my. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff!

Xtreme Aquatic Foods 2223-E Final Thoughts

"Which we all have done."

Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. Don't hesitate, get it before you can't. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. Such an awesome value for the money! I can easily crumple it small or to any size for the little mouths. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them.

"They seem to be fine."

It feeds my pond and two tanks, happy fish! The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. It's a peaceful scene those pretty fish enjoying their snack. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food. I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem. During almost all of that time I've fed my fish TetraFin goldfish food. I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food.

"Nice chunky flakes."

It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. If you have picky fish, the texture and flavor might be a little challenging. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Other than that it is a great product and I will continue to buy it for my fish. Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis.

"He LOVES them."

Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. It is well worth the money especially for the size. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food.

"Good stuff."

I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. They keep having babies so they must be happy lol. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. It feeds my pond and two tanks, happy fish! My fish liked it from the start, and TetraFin has kept improving it over the years. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend.
