Penn-Plax PBV3 First Impressions

"He didn't eat them day 1."

I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. They float well, so he can play more. I accidentally purchased this thinking it was flake food. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years.

  • Penn-Plax Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder – Slow Release Food That’s Great for Weekend Vacays: 1 Block Feeds up to 3 Days (4 Blocks per Package) – Safe for Freshwater & Saltwater Tanks
  • GREAT FOR WEEKEND VACAYS: Worried about finding a fish-sitter as you plan for your next weekend getaway or adventure? Or, whenever or not they’ll overfeed your fish? Fear no more! Our Pro Balance Vacation Fish Feeder Blocks will feed your fish while you’re away. Each block feeds to up 3 days, and each package contains 4 Starfish Shape Blocks.
  • IDEAL FOR 10 – 15 GALLON TANKS: Our Fish Feeder Blocks work best in aquariums that are between 10 and 15 Gallons in size. One block will last 3 to 4 days depending on the PH level and water temperature. A minimum water temperature of 72°F (22°C) and PH level of 6.6 to 7.0 is most efficient for the release of food particles.
  • REQUIRES AERATION & CIRCULATION: Within hours, our Feeder Blocks will start to dissolve, releasing nutritious freeze-dried foods while neutralizing your aquarium’s water. In order for this to happen, your tank should have the proper aeration and circulation. Our Feeder Blocks dissolve normally with setups that have an air stone or filter.
  • GIVE IT A TRY BEFORE YOUR TRIP: Just like us, our fish can get picky over their food. As a suggestion, you may want to place 1 Feeder Block in your tank a week before your vacation or trip. This way, you’ll see if they like it or not. To take it a step further, you may want to leave the tank alone as you test our Feed Blocks, mimicking the trip.
  • INGREDIENTS: Calcium Sulfate, Freeze-Dried Tubifex Worm, Freeze-Dried Bloodworm, Freeze-Dried Daphnia, Freeze-Dried White Shrimp, Thiamine Mononitrate (Source of Vitamin B1), and Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Source of Vitamin B6).

Penn-Plax PBV3 Final Thoughts

"But I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"

The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. The Goldfish Flake is their favorite snack in the morning and evening. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food.

"They gobble these up."

Don't hesitate, get it before you can't. This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks. That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs.

Lakeway Tilapia Final Thoughts

"I indicted Tetra Min."

I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too.

"No issues so far."

Will definitely be purchasing this product from Amazon from here on out. Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use.

I don't even have to worry about my fish when away on vacation. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner.

"Nice chunky flakes."

It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. If you have picky fish, the texture and flavor might be a little challenging. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Other than that it is a great product and I will continue to buy it for my fish. Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis.

"I am not a fish."

I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. The Goldfish Flake is their favorite snack in the morning and evening. It keeps the fish healthy and colorful.

"Let's see."

I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again.

"He didn't eat them day 1."

Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch.

"I did not taste the food."

Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. The Goldfish Flake is their favorite snack in the morning and evening. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. They keep having babies so they must be happy lol. 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. This food seems to do better for the outside fish.

"Point taken."

My son in law feeds this exclusively and he said his fish love it as well. Don't hesitate, get it before you can't. It's a peaceful scene those pretty fish enjoying their snack. My wife has raised her goldfish on Tetra goldfish flakes from day one. Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch.

"My tank is a 55 gallon."

Nope, it is pretty big, which means my community 55-gallon tank has food for years! I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. The next day they seemed less interested. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! The fish seem to not care about the switch either way.

"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.

"I like this product."

Other than that it is a great product and I will continue to buy it for my fish. To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide! Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food.
