Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food for multiple variety fish tanks. I have used this food for several years. Excellent for a variety of fish. Never clouds the water. Only drawback is that most stores in my area do not carry it on a regular basis. I order direct from Tetra. Always receive promptly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Fish love it! I have angels, cory cats, a pleco, and rams in my aquarium. They all love this food! I have tried other brands of granules when I ran out of Tetra Granules. My fish DID NOT like the other brands. After feeding the other brands I had to skim the mushy pellets floating on the top of my tank out with my net. Another bonus, Tetra Granules do not cloud the water! I do have a hard time finding this food in my area as none of the pet stores carry it on a regular basis. PLEASE do not discontinue it!

Hi This food is really excellent but only I find one little problem, this food turns the water red and when I clean the filters the water is red too. Does anyone else Have this problem? Solutions?

Asked by: Leonardo
Customer feedback has not indicated that this is an issue, no. However, the only way that food could do something like this or cause cloudy water, is when it is overfed. It would take some time for any food dye to accumulate in the water to the degree that it discolored the water of the filters. Make sure you are not overfeeding it. It is extremely easy to overfeed granules since they are so small. Depending on the type of fish you have, and their size, they only need 2-4 granules per fish, and should have consumed all of them within less than 30 seconds. If your fish are larger than 2" in size, perhaps you need to go with a larger type of food such as TetraPro Color Crisps, http://www.tetra-fish.com/Products/aquarium-fish-food/best-tropical-fish-food/tetrapro-color-crisps.aspx.

Hello, I bought this food for my Betta after some advices I received on the pet store, but my Betta isn't eating it. What should I do? Will he eat it at some point? (I bought the fish and the food yesterday).

Asked by: Jaime L
If you just got the fish, he is probably too stressed and scared to eat. It's best to try 1-2 pieces of food after the fish has been in the tank for a few hours, then wait till the next day and try again. Try once a day until he settles in, and feels comfortable enough to eat. Make sure his tank has some decor that allows him to hide as bettas love having a "cave" made from natural rock or plants in which to rest. Move calmly, and slowly when you are around the tank so as not to startle him. Ask the store if this is what they were feeding him. If so, then he will begin to eat once he feels more settled. If they were feeding something else, ask them if you could have a tiny bit to mix in with the new food for a week or so to convince him to switch foods. Bettas are picky eaters, and when used to one diet, take a bit of work to get them to switch. BREX

is this food good for african cichlids

Asked by: joeenotes
Thank you for your interest in this Tetra product, joeenotes! Yes, it would be suitable as a supplemental food for African cichlids. We do have a number of diets specific to cichlids, including a pelleted color enhancing diet. If you fish are small, however, this food may be more suitable for now. Here is a link to the various cichlid diets: http://www.tetra-fish.com/Products/aquarium-fish-food.aspx. BREX

This is suitable for any tropical type of freshwater fish such as platys, swordtails, cherry barbs, mollies, parrot cichlids, basically any small or juvenile fish that has red or orange coloration.

the patented health-enhancing ProCare from TetraMin

Hello, i am wondering if you could go into detail what exactly is the health enhancing pro care?
Asked by: Ocean
ProCare stems from Tetra's pioneering work in immunostimulants and how they work in fish. Through intensive studies, Tetra scientifically verified that fish were healthier and more resistant to disease when administered Beta-Glucan. It is also a proprietary mix of vitamins, biotin and minerals for increased fertility and growth rates, and fish oil based Omega 3 fatty acids for optimized growth and less waste. BREX

Greetings from Medellin, Colombia, South America. Receive my congratulations for being a great company dedicated to fish, I asked a question What is the percentage of digestibility TetraColor Tropical Fish Food granules? I testify that because I plan to make a system of fish breeding Pterophyllum and want to use this type of food. and thus take a more detailed cost food control. The granules TetraColor Tropical Fish Food I use in my fish, they supply the amount needed for food, eat in 5 minutes, but I have a problem, water color I turns a pink color, it remains to be this happens or I may be doing wrong. Thank you very much for your collaboration.
Asked by: Nicolas123
It sounds like you might be feeding a little too much. Try reducing the food amount to what they can eat in less than a minute. Make sure to vacuum the gravel and remove any left over food from previous feedings prior to starting the new way of feeding. BREX
