Unknown Tetravacation 14-Day Feeder For Tropical First Impressions

"Our pond is approx."

The company and brand of Tetra has been my go to for products for years. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. They are loving more this product more than flakes. Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. When I feed my fish I drop some in as is and crumple up the rest. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic.

Unknown Tetravacation 14-Day Feeder For Tropical Final Thoughts

"The fish like them fine."

Nice that some float and other sink so all the fish have a chance to feed. Don't hesitate, get it before you can't. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner.

Unknown TKN5LB Final Thoughts

"What a difference!"

This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. They grew quick on flakes, they love them. My 20+ female and male bettas prefer these crisps to other foods. They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders.

"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.

"Hey, variety in the diet."

Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem.

Aqua Max 43235-166262 Final Thoughts

"And they love it."

It keeps the fish healthy and colorful. Until this, the earthworms were their favorites. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. They keep having babies so they must be happy lol. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. The flakes are easy to break up in your fingers for small little mouths if needed.

"Our fishes loves it."

They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. They just clean it up when I sprinkle a couple of spoonfuls. Overall, this is a good product for a good price.

Natural Waterscapes Final Thoughts

"So it is worth the money."

06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. I have a few dozens of goldfish in a small pond. Quick delivery in this time of the Pandemic. I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. 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 tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. Its a myth that petstore gold fish die after the first weekend.

I have been feeding him every day for 1 week now and he loves to swim and play now. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2.
