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.

"So it is worth the money."

I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. The Goldfish Flake is their favorite snack in the morning and evening. Don't hesitate, get it before you can't.

"Feeding frenzy!"

I regularly purchase this and am very happy with the product. My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Meaning it's overfilled for the better! The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks.

"Zip lock style bag."

They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. 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. Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product.

"They gobble these up."

Please be good to each other people. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. The Goldfish Flake is their favorite snack in the morning and evening. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged.

"They love these flakes."

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.

Xtreme Aquatic Foods 2136-F Final Thoughts

"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.

"This can is HUGE!"

Please be good to each other people. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. Such an awesome value for the money!

There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. They keep having babies so they must be happy lol. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule.

API 823B Final Thoughts

"They love it tho."

It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. My son in law feeds this exclusively and he said his fish love it as well. I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried.

"I couldn't help it!"

They won't have to work for it like I did. The container looks like the one I'd just finished so I bought it. 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. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner.

"They seem to be fine."

Then, fill a separate smaller container for daily use. Really happy about this purchase, and it's a very well spoken for brand. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. My wife has raised her goldfish on Tetra goldfish flakes from day one. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes.

It keeps the fish healthy and colorful. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. Fish color and health are all good. They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes.

I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. The Petco store was out of that brand. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond.
