"They love these flakes."

It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs. I have a number of freshwater aquariums with a wide variety of fish. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months.

Blue Ridge Fish Hatchery Final Thoughts

"Value for money."

I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. Overall, I would recommend this food if someone asked my. 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. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas.

"Zip lock style bag."

They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. 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. Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product.

Blue Ridge Fish Hatchery Final Thoughts

"They gobble these up."

Please be good to each other people. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. The Goldfish Flake is their favorite snack in the morning and evening. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged.

"The fish like them fine."

To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide! I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. It feeds my pond and two tanks, happy fish! The Petco store was out of that brand. The Petco store was out of that brand. My catfish love them, so it isn't a problem for me.

"Great price."

The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro. The fishes are are healthy, happy and colorful. It is well worth the money especially for the size.

"This is great fish food."

This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. They won't have to work for it like I did.

"Great price as well!"

That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. Fish color and health are all good. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it.

"And the bag is so big."

The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. The next day they seemed less interested. Fish color and health are all good. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing.

Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. They are loving more this product more than flakes. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. Much better price than at the big box pet store. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds.

Blue Ridge Fish Hatchery Final Thoughts

"They gobble these up."

I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. Overall a great deal, for great fish food. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. Really happy about this purchase, and it's a very well spoken for brand.

"Tastes like chicken."

During almost all of that time I've fed my fish TetraFin goldfish food. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. The fish are always happy to eat it and they develop beautiful colors. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder.

My catfish love them, so it isn't a problem for me. My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond.

My 20+ female and male bettas prefer these crisps to other foods. I regularly purchase this and am very happy with the product. The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. The fish are always happy to eat it and they develop beautiful colors. If you have a lot of fish, it works well. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast.
