Flakes are very small. Now looking for another brand.

Small fish found it hard to swallow

The flakes are small and hard so they sink pretty quickly. My platys suck flakes in and spit them out over and over dropping most of it to the gravel. The ingredients are pretty good for the price but that's not worth much when I have to be twice as meticulous when I feed my fish.

Really bring out the colors

I tried this food and I love that the colors on the fish are more vibrant.

Fish go crazy

My fish eat this so fast and I don’t know if it’s just cause it’s thin flakes or what but it doesn’t make a huge mess either. Only thing I didn’t like is the gap they leave when filling it, like really? That big of a gap for fish food. But I do like how fish seem to eat it quickly and it’s not everywhere.

Fish love it

My fish love this food but I didn't take notice to the size of the tiny can. My mistake not Chewy or it's description.

My fish love these

My fish love this food. I try to switch up the brands to provide them with variety and they really seem to like this one and the omega brand. The container was much larger than I expected which was a pleasant surprise and the flakes are chopped up just about right. Sometimes the flakes in other brands are too big or too small. These are perfectly sized for my tropical fish. My fish thank API.

For some reason my angel fish won't eat this food ?

Through no fault of your product just that they got used to the Glofish Food . Maybe the flakes are to big for them . They are tiny about only an inch. I wanted to give my loved angel fish the best food possible.
