Dinner Bell: Tetramin Flakes

Stock Image

Tetramin Tropical Flakes was the first food I tried with my tetras...largely because a sample pack came for free in the aquarium kit. I don't know how it smelled to the fish, but to me it simply stank, and while the fish ate it since it was all I had while waiting for the other foods I'd ordered to be delivered, it clearly wasn't their meal of choice compared to whatever the LFS had been feeding.

  • This food contains artificial colorants, ethoxyquin, and menadione sodium bisulfite which are potentially harmful.
  • Most vitamins come from artificial sources.
