"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.

"Our fishes loves it."

I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs. It's a peaceful scene those pretty fish enjoying their snack. I regularly purchase this and am very happy with the product. This container is a great size for the price. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. If you have picky fish, the texture and flavor might be a little challenging.

"Surprise, surprise."

I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. My son in law feeds this exclusively and he said his fish love it as well. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. Give them what they need for life and they will live happily.

I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food.

"Which we all have done."

I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. But my Rams tend to be finicky eaters, and they pig out on this stuff. The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. It feeds my pond and two tanks, happy fish! This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. The fishes are are healthy, happy and colorful. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms.

"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.

Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. Give them what they need for life and they will live happily.

That way, you don't expose the flakes to humidity or spills. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. My fish liked it from the start, and TetraFin has kept improving it over the years. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. I regularly purchase this and am very happy with the product. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat.
