"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.

In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. My wife has raised her goldfish on Tetra goldfish flakes from day one. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. Doesn't cloudy my tank up, extra dissolves without any problems. To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide! I expressed my frustration at the fish store, and they recommended these granules. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it.

Tetra 77031 Final Thoughts

"Strong fish food smell."

The Petco store was out of that brand. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. They grew quick on flakes, they love them. The fishes are are healthy, happy and colorful. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits.

"Nice blend."

Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide!

"I feed em all bout 1."

I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. I regularly purchase this and am very happy with the product. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. This food seems to do better for the outside fish. If you have picky fish, the texture and flavor might be a little challenging.

"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.

That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. Overall a great deal, for great fish food. The Petco store was out of that brand.

"Our tank is pretty clean."

I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. Lesson learned, but this will work for now. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. It's a peaceful scene those pretty fish enjoying their snack. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way. They come out of their hiding spots almost as soon as it hits the water.

"The fish like them fine."

Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend. The next day they seemed less interested. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. Overall, I would recommend this food if someone asked my.

"Fish eat them."

The fishes are are healthy, happy and colorful. It's a peaceful scene those pretty fish enjoying their snack. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. They work perfectly in the automatic feeder.

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!

"Our tank is pretty clean."

I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. My 20+ female and male bettas prefer these crisps to other foods. They keep having babies so they must be happy lol. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy.
