"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.

However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. Don't hesitate, get it before you can't. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend.

Tetra 16198 Final Thoughts

"He didn't eat them day 1."

Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! I expressed my frustration at the fish store, and they recommended these granules. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks.

"They love it."

My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. They come out of their hiding spots almost as soon as it hits the water. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all.

"No issues so far."

They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. The company and brand of Tetra has been my go to for products for years. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff! They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast.

"Great price as well!"

That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. Fish color and health are all good. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. 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. My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it.

"And the bag is so big."

The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. The next day they seemed less interested. Fish color and health are all good. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing.

"And they love it."

Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. The fish are always happy to eat it and they develop beautiful colors. Other than that it is a great product and I will continue to buy it for my fish. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish.

However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. They grew quick on flakes, they love them. I don't even have to worry about my fish when away on vacation. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms.
