Laguna PT75 First Impressions

"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.

Xtreme Aquatic Foods 2211-F First Impressions

"DO RECOMEND!"

I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be.

Xtreme Aquatic Foods 2211-F Final Thoughts

"They LOVE it."

It is well worth the money especially for the size. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way.

Penn-Plax Pro-Balance First Impressions

"Point taken."

I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. We've tried most of the brands too. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes.

"Fish love it."

I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. My catfish love them, so it isn't a problem for me. My wife has raised her goldfish on Tetra goldfish flakes from day one. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. Overall a great deal, for great fish food.

"Nice blend."

Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. This is the super value tub and all my water creatures eat every bit I put in. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes.

"Value for money."

My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. If you have picky fish, the texture and flavor might be a little challenging. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. Much better price than at the big box pet store. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way.

Tetra 16158 First Impressions

"I mean really love them."

The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. If you have a lot of fish, it works well. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. The next day they seemed less interested.

Tetra 16158 Final Thoughts

"Great value."

The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form.

"They gobble these up."

Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. Fish color and health are all good. The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. I'll definitely keep buying the TetraFin flakes. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder.

They grew quick on flakes, they love them. And watch them get dismantled, like a four yr old does with toast. Overall, I would recommend this food if someone asked my. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits.

"Especially my shrimp."

Doesn't cloudy my tank up, extra dissolves without any problems. My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it. Fish color and health are all good. The company and brand of Tetra has been my go to for products for years. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites.

"I am so glad I did."

Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. This food seems to do better for the outside fish. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food. LoL, So we are all happy at meal time.

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.

"I am not a fish."

My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. But my Rams tend to be finicky eaters, and they pig out on this stuff. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond.

That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. We've tried most of the brands too. They absolutely love them, voraciously assaulting the flakes at feeding time. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me.
