Are the tetra tropical granules ok for my peacock and hap cichlids.
They would be okay, mick4766, but are not specifically formulated for cichlids. We would recommend using this food in conjunction with the appropriate cichlid diet such as Tetra Cichlid Crisps, depending on the size of your fish. http://www.tetra-fish.com/Products/aquarium-fish-food/cichlid-fish-food/tetracichlid-fish-food-crisps.aspx. Feed the cichlid diet as a staple diet, and give them the granules once every other day or so as a supplement.

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?
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).
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.

is this food good for african cichlids
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.

I was wondering, what kind of fish am I able to feed this to? will certain fish reject it?
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. It is a suitable diet for all smaller tropical freshwater fish, but will only enhance reds, yellows, oranges.

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?
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.

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.
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.

Hello! I am looking to buy TetraColor Tropical Granules 300 g (10.58 OZ) in dozens. I see that your prices are a little bit high in the web. I was wondering if you have better prices for wholesale. I will appreciate if you could email me the prices per dozen or box prices for this product. Thank you very much for your assistance.
We don't sell wholesale, except to our distributors. You may want to check with a local pet store to see what sort of discount they would give you if you ordered a case or two through them.
