"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.

"I highly recommend!"

I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff! Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes.

Xtreme Aquatic Foods 2218-E Final Thoughts

"But that's ok."

I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff! Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years.

"Feeding frenzy!"

Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! My catfish love them, so it isn't a problem for me. My son in law feeds this exclusively and he said his fish love it as well. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders.

The next day they seemed less interested. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way. The next day they seemed less interested. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. They float well, so he can play more. They come out of their hiding spots almost as soon as it hits the water. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere.

API 840C Final Thoughts

"I highly recommend!"

Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. If you have a lot of fish, it works well. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend.

"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.

Blue Ridge Fish Hatchery Final Thoughts

"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.

"A little goes a long way."

We've tried most of the brands too. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. They work perfectly in the automatic feeder. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. The fish are always happy to eat it and they develop beautiful colors. I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all.

"Fish seem happy."

I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food. Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried.

"All I can say is."

I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis.

"You should buy this."

This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff! They are loving more this product more than flakes. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond.

"Point taken."

This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks. I have a number of freshwater aquariums with a wide variety of fish. To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide! There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. I have about 11 fishes 6 different types and all fresh water fishes.

"It seems to do just fine."

They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. It's a peaceful scene those pretty fish enjoying their snack.

"It's friken fish pellets."

The Petco store was out of that brand. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home.
