What do I do for a goldfish in a 1 gallon bowl?
Answer by ChewyDec 20, 2017
You can cut it into four quarters and use just one quarter, in fact the manufacturer highly recommends that in smaller tanks. Keep the packaging, and aluminum for the date codes, and store it in a Ziploc back in your refrigerator for up to one month after opening it for the remaining portion.

Is this supposed to float to the bottom of the tank and they feed at the bottom? I have 3 small tropical fish in a 10 gallon tank. I read somebody used it and it floated at the top and the fish didn't eat it. I want to ensure this works and what it should do before buying. Thank you
Answer by ChewyNov 15, 2017
This product is intended to sink to the bottom of your tank. You will need to completely remove the food from the foil container for them to sink properly.

Will this feed 3 Cory catfish and five tetra over a 7 day period in a 20 gallon tank?
Answer by ChewyJun 21, 2017
Depends on the size and type of fish and tank. For 14 days, one block will feed a 10-19 gallon tank, so essentially up to 10 small fish.

Does this work for goldfish, Cory catfish, and pelco
Answer by ChewyOct 26, 2017
This can be given to all of your fish but the pleco may not eat it since it's not algae based. It is more of an omnivore diet.

would not recommend

I used this product when I went on vacation. my brother checked on the fish after 7 days and the didn't touch the food. he added another one just in case. when i came back there were two globs of food still on the bittom of the tank. My neon fish barely had a color left and they were probably starving. I would not recommendthis product. Maybe it would be better for other fish.

Not what I wanted

My tetras did not eat this while I was on vacation. It looked exactly the same when I returned after being away for a week, except that it had grown a gross white fur.

I’m so thankful my fish survived!

I bought 3 of these for our tank for our 8-day vacation. I came back and they looked exactly the same as when I left. Shouldn’t they have been half dissolved already? When I offered the fish flakes, they flew to the top of the water like they were starving and I’ve never felt so guilty before. I’m throwing these blocks in the trash and never buying them again.

Best vacation food

This is the best aquarium vacation food I have seen. The fish like it, and it is very easy to use.

Classroom fish tank

This stuff is Great! Every 2 weeks in the summer, I'd drop in a couple pods cut in half. My angel fish quadrupled in size. I'm ordering more due to the pandemic. Chewy sells them ¼ the cost of their competitors. Chewy.com is the best!

Greasy fish tank water

Makes a terrible greasy film throughout tank & more time cleaning everything. In tank!

Did not break down!

This fish food did not break down or dissolve at all over 4 days. I removed it and fed my fish some pellets and they went crazy.... I can only imagine they were really hungry. Poor babies.

Cloudy in hours

I bought 2 brands and this one I did not like. Seems like dog food, I followed instructions dropped in and i walked away. 5 hours later (before bedtime) the water was so cloudy. :( ugh! I felt so bad for Cat(my goldfish). In the morning was alot worse...had to change the water. I removed this item from my autoship. I didnt like it, it did not workout for me. I'm trying out vacation food before I leave in a month for 4 days.
