"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.

"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.

"Which we all have done."

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.

"They eat it up!"

The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. Other than that it is a great product and I will continue to buy it for my fish. If you have a lot of fish, it works well. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing.

Tetra 77104 Final Thoughts

"Great deal."

I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. The next day they seemed less interested. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. Fish color and health are all good. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now.

Tetra 77019 Final Thoughts

"But that's ok."

The container looks like the one I'd just finished so I bought it. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. During almost all of that time I've fed my fish TetraFin goldfish food. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. The container looks like the one I'd just finished so I bought it. Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use.

"This is great fish food."

I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. It keeps the fish healthy and colorful. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord.

"They eat and they eat."

I have a number of freshwater aquariums with a wide variety of fish. They grew quick on flakes, they love them. The next day they seemed less interested. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it.

"Great price."

My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way. They are loving more this product more than flakes. I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster.

Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. The fish are always happy to eat it and they develop beautiful colors. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag.

They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff!

I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond.

They won't have to work for it like I did. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond.
