I use in a 29 gallon freshwater tropical tank. Leave about half the flakes as they are for the larger fish, and crumble to smaller sizes for the smaller fish. That's very easy to do and the fish appreciate it.
Full flakes do float on surface long enough for the 2 minute to at most 5 minute time frame recommended for fish to eat the food and not overfeed.
The fish loves this food, and the best part, even after a heavy feeding, the water remains clear and not cloudy. Of course, if you go overboard like this all the time, your water WILL get cloudy. But under normal feeding circumstances, this food is just great.
I received a free sample of the Aqueon flakes with another Amazon fish food order about 2 months ago, tried them, and I have been using the flakes since then. I have a 100 gallon high tech low nutrition saltwater reef system. I feed the Aqueon flakes in small amounts to my saltwater fish (2 Clowns, 4 Anthias, 1 Yellow Tang, 2 Banngai Cardinalfish, 1 Royal Gamma, 1 Blue/ Green Chromis and 1 Firefish) 3 times per day by automatic feeder. I also feed pellets in small amounts ( Hikari Marine S) three times per day by automatic feeder, and frozen food by hand once per day.
The ingredient analysis on the Aqueon container shows that the flakes are slightly less nutritious than some others, e.g., TetraMin. For instance, the Aqueon flakes claim a "guaranteed" minimum "crude protein" analysis of 41% while TetraMin claims 47%. So one would have to feed slightly more Aqueon flakes (6% more) to reach the same level of protein nutrition as TetraMin. I don't know what practical effect that difference has on either fish health or water quality, but it must have some. Time will tell if the difference is material. So far I have not noticed or detected any measurable effect, and I test my water every week.
In my case, my tank and all my fish are less than one year old and not fully mature. My fish still prefer smaller foods. None of them have demonstrated any resistance to the smaller flakes, even the Banggai Cardinalfish, which are notoriously fussy. In any event, to me the convenience of using the flakes right out of the container with my automatic feeders (without having to crush them) outweighs the nutrition difference. I could never crush larger flakes into consistent smaller sizes that would consistently flow through my automatic feeder. The Aqueon Tropical flakes are all consistently small sized so they consistently feed from my Neptune automatic feeder without either clogging or over-feeding.
