Product Description

Crisps with a concentrated color-enhancing center. Promotes the fish’s naturally intense colors. Perfect as a supplement to tetramin tropical crisps.

Quality Nutrition for Tropical Fish

Tetra has been revolutionizing and improving fish nutrition since the company’s birth in Germany in 1951. Since that time, Tetra has developed one of the most comprehensive bodies of flake fish food knowledge in the world. A full team of biologists, chemists, and nutritionists continually study and discover what keeps fish thriving and living long, healthy lives.

TetraColor Tropical Crisps

TetraColor Tropical Crisps provide balanced nutrition and work to bring out the brilliant colors of tropical fish. High in carotenoids, this diet is designed to promote the natural pink to orange-red colors in fish. Highly digestible ingredients mean less waste and cleaner, clearer water. TetraColor Tropical Crisps float longer than other food-forms; making them ideal for top-feeders. Uniform crisp size provides consistency in feeding for happier and healthier fish.

Clean, Clear Water

Tetra formulas feature micro milled, exotic, high-protein fish meal as a core ingredient—making them pure and digestible with fewer colorants. This leads to less waste and a cleaner, clearer aquarium.

I wanted to tell you a few things I had not seen in other reviews.

There are two problems for me with this food. When you put the crisps into the water they spread out beautifully and then sink very quickly to the bottom of the tank like a sinking pellet type of food. The second problem is that these crisps are too large for smaller fish to eat quickly. The reason these two things are a problem is because I have top feeders and they don't want their food on the bottom of the aquarium where they have to compete with the bottom feeders for it. (I have food already specifically for bottom feeders) The size is an issue because the small fish have to pick at it repeatedly to get much, giving the bigger fish plenty of time to swoop in and eat the crisp whole. (I do have one tank that is just babies and they really don't care, they devour anything I put in there.)

This product appears nice and neat and is very easy to distribute into the tanks. As it sinks to the floor within 3 seconds of being placed into the tank, it does not get sucked into the filter like some flakes with as the flakes slowly drift around the tank (providing the perfect feeding environment for top and mid feeders)

In the end this comes down to your preference and what your fish like, I just wanted you to be aware a little more exactly of the details of this food. Best of luck to you and your fishes!

Well I've been using this products for several months now and all I can say is that it's the best so far. I first bought the 1.34oz container to try it out since the employee at petsmart pointed out that it creates less waste then flakes so I did. After running out I decided to buy the omega one color flakes and my fish didn't even make an effort to eat it. After hearing great things from omega one I would of thought it was gonna make my fish happy but I guess my fish are just crazy about this food. I went back and exchanged the bottle for this bigger size one of 7.41oz and I'm happy. It's not so true about this product causing any type of outbreak in your tank, that's the owners fault for over feeding. I have a huge bioload in my tank for being over stocked and having a lot of fry but even crumbling up the crisp the baby fish can enjoy it as well. My top and middle swimmers love this food so much they go all the way down to eat more! So for my opinion my fish love the food, I love that's less waste and for anyone saying that it's too big then use your hand crumble a lil and feed the smaller fish, common sense. I recommend this product to any hobbiest out their that's looking into making their fish brighter and healthier and loves their tank clean.

My fish love this stuff! I've been buying it for several years now, and it makes a noticeable difference in the color of my fish. I started out with an outdoor pond in my back yard maybe 3' deep x 4' wide. I filled it in early spring with a dozen cheap feeder fish that came up to a whopping .60 cents. I bought them from Petco and I got the Tetra Color food at the same time just to prove that a stupid can of fish food cant affect the color of fish. Boy was I wrong! During the first year I fed them at least 3 times a day and sometimes up to 5 times a day. I only fed them what they could eat to avoid waste and cloudy water. In all honesty what I saw was kind of amazing. Lets be clear I dont work for Tetra nor do I want their prices to raise on this product which I've been paying $19 for at Petco currently $15 and always in stock at Amazon. Anyhow, in addition to them growing like they were on steroids (due to me overfeeding them) the colors were very vibrant. Feeder fish normally dont look like anything special, most of them are crappy, short life expectancy goldfish that are either a silverish gray or a bleached out orange color. Compared to before the change in color is as vivid as the one going from that old big back Zenith tv to a new Samsung LED tv, they are that much more colorful. If you havent upgraded your tv yet, then it sux to be you lol, but the fish are now almost as colorful as salt water fish (of the same color). There was one odd side effect. One single fish turned completely black, then over another year or so the gold came back in large patches but that fish and the rest are completely healthy. I did have to settle for the normal Tetramin (non color) food when the Color version was sold out (the large size is NEVER in stock at most Petco stores).Read more ›

This is my favorite fish food. I love that it's easy to measure (the packaging specifies how many crisps to feed per inch of fish). I like that it's concrete and I don't have to worry too much about over or under feeding my fish. I also feel like the crisp style food makes less mess in the tank than traditional flakes. My fish' colors always look more vibrant when I'm feeding this, as well. My all-time favorite!

"I bought Tetracolor Tropical fish for my freshwater tropical 55g community tanks, and was surprised the first time I watched my neon tetras eat. The crisps are flat, and round, and tend to sink flatly through the water. When my neons took a bite out of them, the crisps would crumble, and fall around they're mouths, making for a comical sight. Add in that the colors on the neon tetras have brightened up like crazy made me that much happier that I'd bought Tetracolor Tropical Crisps!!!" Will buy again. By the way other stores sell this for more the $24
