this jar is big mind you. if you have a lot of fish, it works well. strong fish food smell. fish clearly love it as they have doubled in size, are now speaking 3 different languages, and are doing calculus on the side of the fishtank.

It's fish food people, not much to review here! I put it in the tank and the fish eat it and stay alive another day! I've tried asking them if they like it but they haven't responded yet. When they do I will make an update. I will say the bottle lasts a very long time :)

I've been buying TetraMin fish food as long as I can remember. These flakes are easy to serve (a pinch or so) and easily digested by my freshwater fishes. They do have a slight odor to them but I think this is good for the fish because it draws them in. I buy the large 7.06 oz size, which is very economical, and then transfer them to my smaller 2.2 oz container where I can easily just sprinkle them over the tank with the slide top. I have a floating foam serving area where I sprinkle the flakes so that they don't circulate everywhere and the fish knows exactly where to go when they see me come by. The flakes will stay afloat as long as the fish don't make too much commotion (unlikely) so they will start to sink pretty quickly and get sucked into the filtration system. This is why it's important to not just put a handful and walk away or the flakes will just sink down and sink on the bottom or get sucked and trapped inside the filter. I take time to slowly sprinkle and watch them eat and then sprinkle again within a two minute time frame. I don't have any bottom feeders so if the food sits at the bottom, it rarely gets eaten and then just becomes waste. This is most apparent at the end of the month, when I have to vacuum up uneaten food and waste. Fed properly, this quantity should last a long time and the tank will not get too dirty and cloud up, or worse, promote algae growth. Overall, I would definitely recommend these flakes because my fishes do love them (which means they must be delicious!). The fishes are are healthy, happy and colorful. I'd give them 4.5/5.0. -10/20/2014

I actually bought this in anticipation of a tank full of tropical fish, but I ended up getting only a betta. I had purchased betta pellets separately and planned on feeding him those while saving the flakes for another time. I quickly discovered, however, that my betta did not like my Aqueon betta food. Being worried that I'd starve my new friend, I dropped a flake or two for him and to my surprise, he gobbled them up. I've been feeding him these ever since. The added shrimp rounds his diet out nicely and makes him eager for feeding time.

The flakes do not sink unless he pulls them under water while he tries to eat them, and they break apart easily for my betta (without sinking). If he loves these that much, I can only imagine that a full tank of tropical fish would have thrived on these flakes.

If you're not sure how much 7.06 ounces is, it's actually 200 grams, so take this into consideration before you end up with more fish food than you plan to consume! :)

Edited to add: One of my cats comes running every time I open the container in hopes of nabbing a few stray flakes for herself. I have no idea why they're so appealing to her. It might be the shrimp?

Bought this flakes because my fish was getting cranky and stop eating their other usual flakes. They end up loving this food even more! Had 2 Platy and they would gobble all of the flakes up every time it hit the water. When the extra pieces fell to the bottom of the gravel my corydoras catfish ate it too! Even though I got the smallest size, 0.42 oz, it was actually a lot! If you have a 12 gallon tank or below and doesn't over crowded your tank the 0.42 oz will probably last you a while.

Here is the Cons. The cap/cover for the container doesn't closed properly when twisted, maybe I just got the bad one. Also if you feed a lot the water can get a little bit oily at the surface. And Flakes do have a really strong fishy food smell to it.

Overall all my fishes loves it even the cranky one so I am happy with this Tetra flakes.

My fish like this. They are not growing fast but I guess that has something to do with the size of the tank instead of the food. They ar very happy and healthy though. I have them since they are just baby fish so I really want to keep them health and hope they can stay with us for a long time.

I bought this food for my goldfish, but it turns out that the cat loves it too! She wakes me up every morning to feed the fish and nearly trips me up on the way to the tank. She sits on the table and patiently waits for her pinch of flakes. I'm hoping that this food it healthy for her, too. The fish are always hungry because, well, they are goldfish.

I have used TetraMin for years. I always felt it was the best. But this new variety with the added shrimp makes such a mess in my tank. The flakes immediately sink to the bottom and the fish just dont seem very interested in it.
I will try to find the original and see if that has changed in some way.
