"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!

Kaytee 100033590 Final Thoughts

"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.

2. Aquacarium Veggie Flakes Natural Fish Food

"I buy the large 7."

Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. Much better price than at the big box pet store. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid.

Aquacarium Final Thoughts

"I am not a fish."

Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend. They absolutely love them, voraciously assaulting the flakes at feeding time. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. It's a peaceful scene those pretty fish enjoying their snack. I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes.

"DO RECOMEND!"

Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. This food seems to do better for the outside fish. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. They grew quick on flakes, they love them. I have about 11 fishes 6 different types and all fresh water fishes.

Xtreme Aquatic Foods 2208-B Final Thoughts

"My beta loves the worms."

The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. Give them what they need for life and they will live happily. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. The company and brand of Tetra has been my go to for products for years. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too.

Tetra 16192 First Impressions

"It's fish food!"

The Petco store was out of that brand. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. The container looks like the one I'd just finished so I bought it. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way.

Tetra 16192 Final Thoughts

"I did not taste the food."

However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. I can easily crumple it small or to any size for the little mouths. My catfish love them, so it isn't a problem for me. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors.

"My fish love all of them."

It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. 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. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed.

API 840B Final Thoughts

"Absolute bargain, too."

When I purchased this food, I thought it was the small container. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. I can only get little one in local stores for alot more money. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites.

"Great price."

The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro. The fishes are are healthy, happy and colorful. It is well worth the money especially for the size.

Blue Ridge Fish Hatchery Final Thoughts

"This is great fish food."

This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. 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. They won't have to work for it like I did. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. They won't have to work for it like I did.

"5 out of 5 stars."

They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I have a number of freshwater aquariums with a wide variety of fish. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. It is well worth the money especially for the size. The fish are always happy to eat it and they develop beautiful colors.

"It's fish food!"

Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. Overall, I would recommend this food if someone asked my. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites.

Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. They float well, so he can play more. This is the super value tub and all my water creatures eat every bit I put in.

"Not with this stuff."

It is well worth the money especially for the size. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! Much better price than at the big box pet store. Overall a great deal, for great fish food. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. The Goldfish Flake is their favorite snack in the morning and evening. It feeds my pond and two tanks, happy fish!

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.

"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.
