"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.

"Point taken."

There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. LoL, So we are all happy at meal time. They float well, so he can play more.

"No Koi lost as of yet."

I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. Much better price than at the big box pet store. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. I'll definitely keep buying the TetraFin flakes. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food.

"Great food."

Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. Will definitely be purchasing this product from Amazon from here on out. The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. This container is a great size for the price. The company and brand of Tetra has been my go to for products for years. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2.

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.

"Surprise, surprise."

Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. I like how the packaging can be resealed. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter.

This is the super value tub and all my water creatures eat every bit I put in. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it.

"They eat it up!"

This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. The Petco store was out of that brand. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. This container is a great size for the price. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat.

"Great deal."

I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. The next day they seemed less interested. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. Fish color and health are all good. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now.

"I like this product."

Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. They are loving more this product more than flakes. They work perfectly in the automatic feeder. I can easily crumple it small or to any size for the little mouths. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all.
