"It's fish food!"

The Petco store was out of that brand. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. The container looks like the one I'd just finished so I bought it. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way.

Tetra 16192 Final Thoughts

"I did not taste the food."

However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. I can easily crumple it small or to any size for the little mouths. My catfish love them, so it isn't a problem for me. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors.

My 20+ female and male bettas prefer these crisps to other foods. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy.

"Value for money."

That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. This container is a great size for the price. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. Please be good to each other people. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. Please be good to each other people.

Tetra 77031 Final Thoughts

"Strong fish food smell."

The Petco store was out of that brand. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. They grew quick on flakes, they love them. The fishes are are healthy, happy and colorful. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits.

"They gobble these up."

This food seems to do better for the outside fish. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes.

Tetra 77037 Final Thoughts

"My goldfish loved these."

It feeds my pond and two tanks, happy fish! I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. The next day they seemed less interested. Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! We've tried most of the brands too.

Hikari Final Thoughts

"Thank you!"

Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro. Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. I'll definitely keep buying the TetraFin flakes. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond.

"Absolute bargain, too."

I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. Such an awesome value for the money!

The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. They come out of their hiding spots almost as soon as it hits the water. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. It is well worth the money especially for the size. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs.
