"My rule of thumb is."

Give them what they need for life and they will live happily. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. They are loving more this product more than flakes. My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. The container looks like the one I'd just finished so I bought it.

DrTim's Aquatics 772 Final Thoughts

"I am not a fish."

I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. Please be good to each other people. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food.

Xtreme Aquatic Foods 2211-F First Impressions

"DO RECOMEND!"

I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be.

Xtreme Aquatic Foods 2211-F Final Thoughts

"They LOVE it."

It is well worth the money especially for the size. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way.

Aqueon 100106028 Final Thoughts

"Great food."

Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. Will definitely be purchasing this product from Amazon from here on out. The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. This container is a great size for the price. The company and brand of Tetra has been my go to for products for years. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2.

Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. Doesn't cloudy my tank up, extra dissolves without any problems. It is well worth the money especially for the size. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. My 20+ female and male bettas prefer these crisps to other foods. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food.

Fish color and health are all good. I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem. Doesn't cloudy my tank up, extra dissolves without any problems. They are loving more this product more than flakes. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried.

Tetra 16204 Final Thoughts

"My rule of thumb is."

This is the super value tub and all my water creatures eat every bit I put in. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. They grew quick on flakes, they love them. This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks. They won't have to work for it like I did. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner.

The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. I like how the packaging can be resealed. To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide!

Fluval A6586 Final Thoughts

"They eat and they eat."

It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. Fish color and health are all good. It is well worth the money especially for the size. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff!

"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.

User Ratings: 83 2

San Francisco Bay Brand First Impressions

"My fish love this food."

The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. My 20+ female and male bettas prefer these crisps to other foods. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. Will definitely be purchasing this product from Amazon from here on out.

  • Freeze dried bloodworms, its that simple. Leave nature at its best. Also known as Red Mosquito Larve.

San Francisco Bay Brand Final Thoughts

"I am so glad I did."

They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. I have a number of freshwater aquariums with a wide variety of fish. They work perfectly in the automatic feeder. I have about 11 fishes 6 different types and all fresh water fishes. Much better price than at the big box pet store. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. Will definitely be purchasing this product from Amazon from here on out.

I'll definitely keep buying the TetraFin flakes. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest.
