"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.

"Nice in water holds nice."

However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. Don't hesitate, get it before you can't. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend.

Tetra 16198 Final Thoughts

"He didn't eat them day 1."

Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! I expressed my frustration at the fish store, and they recommended these granules. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks.

"My beta loves the worms."

I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it.

There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form.

The company and brand of Tetra has been my go to for products for years. LoL, So we are all happy at meal time. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years.

"A little goes a long way."

I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. They work perfectly in the automatic feeder. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it. I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish.

Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. This food seems to do better for the outside fish. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food.
