"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.

Laguna PT75 Final Thoughts

"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.

Tetra Pond 16484 First Impressions

"DO RECOMEND!"

I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. They absolutely love them, voraciously assaulting the flakes at feeding time.

Tetra Pond 16484 Final Thoughts

"They are also growing."

You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now.

Zoo Med 976501 First Impressions

"They LOVE it."

To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide! I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. Fish color and health are all good. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms.

Zoo Med 976501 Final Thoughts

"The fish like them fine."

I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. This food seems to do better for the outside fish. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond.

4. Tetra Pond Koi Vibrance

Tetra Pond 16485 First Impressions

"Noticeably brighter."

Overall, this is a good product for a good price. Lesson learned, but this will work for now. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. Lesson learned, but this will work for now. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish.

"Absolute bargain, too."

I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. Much better price than at the big box pet store. They work perfectly in the automatic feeder. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. This container is a great size for the price. They are loving more this product more than flakes.

"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.

6. TetraPond Variety Blend Fish Food to Enhance Color and Vitality

Tetra Pond 16454 First Impressions

"Tastes like chicken."

My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it. This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. Fish color and health are all good. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond.

Tetra Pond 16454 Final Thoughts

"They gobble these up."

I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. The next day they seemed less interested. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks.

"My tank is a 55 gallon."

I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. I'll definitely keep buying the TetraFin flakes. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. I can only get little one in local stores for alot more money.

"Nice chunky flakes."

This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. I don't even have to worry about my fish when away on vacation. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. The next day they seemed less interested. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. My fish liked it from the start, and TetraFin has kept improving it over the years. LoL, So we are all happy at meal time.

"Can't complain."

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 have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord.

"Let's see."

Overall, I would recommend this food if someone asked my. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. My catfish love them, so it isn't a problem for me. Don't hesitate, get it before you can't. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form.
