"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. This container is a great size for the price. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. Please be good to each other people. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish.

"My Betta loves it."

I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand.

Hikari HIKARI HK22206 1.23 oz Vibra Bites Tropi Final Thoughts

"Surprise, surprise."

I don't even have to worry about my fish when away on vacation. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs. This is the super value tub and all my water creatures eat every bit I put in. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes.

I expressed my frustration at the fish store, and they recommended these granules. My son in law feeds this exclusively and he said his fish love it as well. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. The next day they seemed less interested. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic.

"They seem to be fine."

Lesson learned, but this will work for now. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. My fish liked it from the start, and TetraFin has kept improving it over the years. Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. Lesson learned, but this will work for now.

"Our pond is approx."

I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish.
