"I am not a fish."

I have been using this product for decades, and it is loved by all my fish. The waste is extremely minimal to nothing. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. The Goldfish Flake is their favorite snack in the morning and evening. It keeps the fish healthy and colorful.

Zoo Med AFS4 Final Thoughts

"Let's see."

I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. It also seems to create less waste than other brands, which keeps my tank cleaner. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. It comes in a large container and I know we will never need fish food again.

"Surprise, surprise."

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. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. I received my order today as promised and the shipping box was sealed and undamaged. My fish liked it from the start, and TetraFin has kept improving it over the years. My fry grow out quickly with vibrant colours. We've tried most of the brands too.

Zoo Med 85026020 First Impressions

"Nice blend."

Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. This is the super value tub and all my water creatures eat every bit I put in. I found this TetraMin Tropical Flakes item that met all of my needs. Our fish tell us every morning in sign language how much they like your flakes.

"Value for money."

My larger fish eat it just as readily as the smaller fish. If you have picky fish, the texture and flavor might be a little challenging. Best of luck to everyone and stay safe and healthy. I also keep the pond heater at 73 to 74 degrees all winter. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. Much better price than at the big box pet store. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way.

Zoo Med 976501 First Impressions

"They LOVE it."

To put it in perspective, its about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide! I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders. Fish color and health are all good. 06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2. As an avid aquarium enthusiast I use a lot of fish food. Overall, this is a good product for a good price. I'd tried various flaked food, bloodworms, brine, and even live baby earthworms.

Zoo Med 976501 Final Thoughts

"The fish like them fine."

I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. This food seems to do better for the outside fish. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Inevitably I ran out of the flakes and went to purchase the same product. Many betta foods are floating orbs that have a diameter too large for bettas. Also, these seem to grow waterlogged and sink faster than the TetraMin Pro. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond.

"All I can say is."

I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. Kind of seems like junk food but the fish all love it. I tried a different brand for a week, and then bought a new bottle of this food. Beta fish response to this product is less intersted as compared to bug bites. I STRONGLY recommend you to open the bag IN ONE CORNER with scissors. I'm currently feeding Mollies, Platys, Neons, Swordtails and Dwarf gouramis. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried.

"You should buy this."

This might be a pro or a con, depending on the type of fish you have. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. Our giant plecos absolutely love this stuff! They are loving more this product more than flakes. For those that own fish you know how expensive it can be. The fish seem to not care about the switch either way.

"And the bag is so big."

Who would've thought 7 ounces of fish food is so much. Truth is though, my fish prefer this fish food to many others I've tried. I had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. My Oscar is almost 4 years old and loves it. Will definitely be purchasing this product from Amazon from here on out. Florida green tree frogs, leopard frogs eat it, my southern black toads eat meat. Lesson learned, but this will work for now.

"Point taken."

They wouldn't go into detail about anything more. If you have picky fish, the texture and flavor might be a little challenging. I have a sorority of 7 bettas, and they love this food. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. Betta fins make them slow, so they need something a little sturdier sometimes. The flakes are consistently mostly big, so it's not a big bucket of duff at all. The Petco store was out of that brand.

"Our fishes loves it."

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 had tried flake food in an automatic feeder which was a total disaster. 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. I bought the 7oz container which is a lot of fish food. The next day they seemed less interested.

Fluval A6584 Final Thoughts

"What a difference!"

However, I did have one small issue my package was delivered to my neighbor. You can't beat that price anywhere else and trust me I have looked everywhere. This food seems to do better for the outside fish. You can't go wrong with Tetra food products. I have been using TetraMin brand for 20 of those years. In particular, they attack the red-colored flakes. The flakes inside the bucket come inside a sturdy bag.

Tetra 77150 First Impressions

"Noticeably brighter."

They won't have to work for it like I did. I looked carefully inside the small shipping box but did not find the missing lid. I bought a house last year and inherited some fish in a pond. 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. I have tried to transition them to pellets but they love the flakes and ignore them. This container is a great size for the price.

"Excellent product."

This is a great addition to any feeding regiment for community and betta tanks. I've had backyard goldfish ponds over the last 30 years at three different homes. 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. However when I opened the box one of the containers did not have a lid. I mix Tetra crisps with freeze dried Tetra blood worms. I've also now have a number of very plump bottom feeders.
