"All I can say is."

Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. During almost all of that time I've fed my fish TetraFin goldfish food. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. They work perfectly in the automatic feeder. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be.

Cobalt Aquatics 30354 Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend!"

It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. They won't have to work for it like I did. I expressed my frustration at the fish store, and they recommended these granules.

2. Cobalt Aquatics MODEL-23064 1 Piece Ultra Spirulina Flake Fish Food, Large/2 lb

Cobalt Aquatics MODEL-23064 First Impressions

"I buy the large 7."

It feeds my pond and two tanks, happy fish! This food seems to do better for the outside fish. I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms.

Cobalt Aquatics MODEL-23064 Final Thoughts

"Works very good."

The container looks like the one I'd just finished so I bought it. I have a number of freshwater aquariums with a wide variety of fish. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. They won't have to work for it like I did. Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! Please be good to each other people.

"They sank."

They work perfectly in the automatic feeder. The next day they seemed less interested. They come out of their hiding spots almost as soon as it hits the water. They float well, so he can play more. I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. My wife has raised her goldfish on Tetra goldfish flakes from day one. LoL, So we are all happy at meal time.

"Our fish love this food."

I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. We've tried most of the brands too. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. It's a peaceful scene those pretty fish enjoying their snack. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend.

"This can is HUGE!"

Please be good to each other people. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. Such an awesome value for the money! I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch.

"No Koi lost as of yet."

There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. They keep having babies so they must be happy lol. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule.

"Our fishes loves it."

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!

"So it is worth the money."

06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. 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 eat it up!"

This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. The Petco store was out of that brand. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. This container is a great size for the price. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat.

"What a difference!"

However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. This food seems to do better for the outside fish. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag.

"5 out of 5 stars."

They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I have a number of freshwater aquariums with a wide variety of fish. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. It is well worth the money especially for the size. The fish are always happy to eat it and they develop beautiful colors.

"It's fish food!"

Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. Overall, I would recommend this food if someone asked my. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites.

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.

Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors.

It keeps the fish healthy and colorful. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. Doesn't cloudy my tank up, extra dissolves without any problems. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing.
