"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. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it.

"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.

In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. My wife has raised her goldfish on Tetra goldfish flakes from day one. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. Doesn't cloudy my tank up, extra dissolves without any problems. To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide! I expressed my frustration at the fish store, and they recommended these granules. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it.

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.

"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.

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.

"He didn't eat them day 1."

I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. They float well, so he can play more. I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years.

  • Penn-Plax Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder – Slow Release Food That’s Great for Weekend Vacays: 1 Block Feeds up to 3 Days (4 Blocks per Package) – Safe for Freshwater & Saltwater Tanks
  • GREAT FOR WEEKEND VACAYS: Worried about finding a fish-sitter as you plan for your next weekend getaway or adventure? Or, whenever or not they’ll overfeed your fish? Fear no more! Our Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder Blocks will feed your fish while you’re away. Each block feeds to up 3 days, and each package contains 4 Starfish Shape Blocks.
  • IDEAL FOR 10 – 15 GALLON TANKS: Our Fish Feeder Blocks work best in aquariums that are between 10 and 15 Gallons in size. One block will last 3 to 4 days depending on the PH level and water temperature. A minimum water temperature of 72°F (22°C) and PH level of 6.6 to 7.0 is most efficient for the release of food particles.
  • REQUIRES AERATION & CIRCULATION: Within hours, our Feeder Blocks will start to dissolve, releasing nutritious freeze-dried foods while neutralizing your aquarium’s water. In order for this to happen, your tank should have the proper aeration and circulation. Our Feeder Blocks dissolve normally with setups that have an air stone or filter.
  • GIVE IT A TRY BEFORE YOUR TRIP: Just like us, our fish can get picky over their food. As a suggestion, you may want to place 1 Feeder Block in your tank a week before your vacation or trip. This way, you’ll see if they like it or not. To take it a step further, you may want to leave the tank alone as you test our Feed Blocks, mimicking the trip.
