Can I feed my outdoor goldfish this food?
Answer by ChewyOct 02, 2021
This food is naturally balanced for Cichlids.

Is this container the same size as the 4.52 lb bucket the Tetra Tropical flakes come in? If so, is there just less food in this one?
Answer by ChewyDec 18, 2020
This bucket is not the same size that the 4.52lb bucket of Tetra Tropical flakes come in.

is this also okay for guppies and Mollies

Great flakes

I've fed these to my fish for years. I love the container, but wish they would go back to the easy to remove label. I like to reuse the bucket after the flakes are gone. My fish give these flakes two fins up!

Great Size and Price

I have tank with Oscars , blood parrots, red tailed sharks and a synodontis catfish who have appetites and this much food for the price is great! They also love it and with them being picky eaters it’s a win win. It doesn’t seem to change the water or make must waste as long as you don’t over feed. I highly recommended this food!

Tetra cichlid flakes

I tried feeding my cichlids different foods but this is the only thing they will eat. They absolutely go crazy when they see me get the jar out
