"Noticeably brighter."

Overall, this is a good product for a good price. Lesson learned, but this will work for now. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. Lesson learned, but this will work for now. I have used this brand and fish food since the day I purchased my fish.

Tetra Pond 16485 Final Thoughts

"Absolute bargain, too."

I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. Much better price than at the big box pet store. They work perfectly in the automatic feeder. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. This container is a great size for the price. They are loving more this product more than flakes.

"You should buy this."

This is the super value tub and all my water creatures eat every bit I put in. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. We've tried most of the brands too. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing.

Tetra Pond 16469 Final Thoughts

"My fish love all of them."

We've tried most of the brands too. I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish. It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. My catfish love them, so it isn't a problem for me. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have.

"Tastes like chicken."

My neon tetras, mollies, platys, and tiger barbs love this stuff and they devour it. This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. Fish color and health are all good. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond.

Tetra Pond 16454 Final Thoughts

"They gobble these up."

I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. The next day they seemed less interested. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks.

"DO RECOMEND!"

I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. They absolutely love them, voraciously assaulting the flakes at feeding time.

"My goldfish loved these."

I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord. It's super fresh, and the tight seal on the lid makes its longevity stretch. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. There were two kinds of food--one flake and one in stick form. Don't hesitate, get it before you can't.

"They love it tho."

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.

"Will not buy again."

But my Rams tend to be finicky eaters, and they pig out on this stuff. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. My fish liked it from the start, and TetraFin has kept improving it over the years. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. The fishes are are healthy, happy and colorful. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. Such an awesome value for the money!

"Can't complain."

The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. I have been using TetraMin Tropical Flakes to feed guppies for over a dozen years. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. I tightly close the bag with a plastic cord.
