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.

Overall a great deal, for great fish food. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere.

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.

FIRST BITES .35OZ 17371 First Impressions

"Value for money."

I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs. I actually only buy their food and fish tank kits. However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders.

FIRST BITES .35OZ 17371 Final Thoughts

"He LOVES them."

I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem. The food is very nutritious and fish food isn't just fish food. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. I have about 11 fishes 6 different types and all fresh water fishes. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes. This Tetra style food doesn't do either of those things.

My fish liked it from the start, and TetraFin has kept improving it over the years. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes.

"Great deal."

Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. Overall, I would recommend this food if someone asked my. They keep having babies so they must be happy lol. Other than that it is a great product and I will continue to buy it for my fish. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. I like how the packaging can be resealed. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat.

San Francisco Bay Brand/Sally's First Impressions

"They sank."

They didn't seem to like the stick variety so I tossed it and fed them the flakes. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. I went to a different Petco and found the right brand and brought it home. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. The Petco store was out of that brand. Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro.

San Francisco Bay Brand/Sally's Final Thoughts

"My rule of thumb is."

I have been using this stuff for a couple of years without a problem. For whatever reason, my fish have never been much attracted to pellet food. They come out of their hiding spots almost as soon as it hits the water. Some feed at the surface and some feed toward the bottom of the tanks. I have about 11 fishes 6 different types and all fresh water fishes. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them.

Southern Delight First Impressions

"It seems to do just fine."

I can only get little one in local stores for alot more money. I have a number of freshwater aquariums with a wide variety of fish. Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. I picked a similar flake food and brought it home and tossed it in the pond. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag. To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide! I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food.

  • Southern Delight Large Cichlid fish food
  • LARGE CICHLID FOOD / SPECIAL BLENDS* is custom blended to mimic the nutritionally diverse feeding habits of fish found in nature. Made up of separate nutrient rich pellet diets mixed together to meet the specific and essential nutritional needs of each variety. Each different colored pellet has it's own distinct set of ingredients and unique levels of meat as well as vegetable proteins, fats and fibers. Like feeding in nature, this allows for varied and deciphered eating and provides a uniquely diverse, balanced and complete diet.

Southern Delight Final Thoughts

"Works very good."

Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food. This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. Really happy about this purchase, and it's a very well spoken for brand. I can only get little one in local stores for alot more money. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all.

Much better price than at the big box pet store. Because apparently my queensland dogs like it and need to participate too. They grew quick on flakes, they love them. However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me.

Tetra 16265 Final Thoughts

"Feeding frenzy!"

My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. My wife has raised her goldfish on Tetra goldfish flakes from day one. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. I also use subscribe and save for monthly deliveries so this food is a keeper for me.

"You should buy this."

I work long hours and don't always have time to feed my fish on a regular schedule. I will purchase again in the far future, since I now have over two pounds. I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. This bucket of flakes allow me to feed these guys for 18 months. Don't pinch the flakes with your hand. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. They are loving more this product more than flakes.

"Hey, variety in the diet."

Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. The flakes absorb the moisture in the air, cake up, and clog the feeder. They anxiously wait with signs waiting for it always. The fish are always happy to eat it and they develop beautiful colors. Other than that it is a great product and I will continue to buy it for my fish. I can't use it in tanks where the majority of the fish feed at the surface.

"I almost cried."

The fish have grown beautifully, rich in color and very healthy. I'll definitely keep buying the TetraFin flakes. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. This works well for me for the last decade and saves me money on bulk purchasing. Fish color and health are all good. It feeds my pond and two tanks, happy fish! I have about 11 fishes 6 different types and all fresh water fishes.
