Tetrafin Goldfish Flakes
Advantages: Good fish food make fish happy
Disadvantages: Opening the jar and the smell
I have a 9 year old daughter and after the last 9months of her begging for a dog we agreed that if she could take care of a goldfish for 1 year and not kill it we would get her a dog. Well Tetra Fin is the goldfish food we chose for her little fish that she named bubblies sac a something.
After getting home and letting the poor fish float around at the top of the tank in the plastic bag filled with air from the pet store for an hour to get used to the water or something. I am not real sure as I dont really know about fish. We were able to put him into the tank. I actually waited for the poor guy to start swimming belly up if you know what I mean.
Suprisingly he did not so I thought well since he is doing so good lets feed him some of this gold fish food that our fish was sure to love. I mean the fish on the jar of food looked happy so I figured ours would be to. So I slid the little opening at the top open to find a foil type lid.
Drats foiled again. I messed with getting the top off and after only a few curses I had the lid off now for the foil. I have had a bad experience with this kind of item before and try to do it so that the whole jar dont end up all down the front of me. As I pryed on the edge of the foil trying to break the seal and not spill half the jar all at once I pulled perhaps a little to hard and the flake's of food proceded to make my carpet a multi color collage of abstract shaped flakes. Causing the curses to flow and boy let me tell you flow they did.
I figured after all that trouble and how pretty the carpet looked now the least I could do was drop a pinch into the fist tank to feed the poor guy. I mean I just knew that he was laughing at me as the flakes of food fell like snow around me. I dropped a pinch into the water and watched it float on the top. The gold fish was swimming around the bottom eating the flakes as they dropped to the bottom.
I thought I would see if any of the half a jar of food could be saved from the carpet. I bent down and thats when I got the first whif of what I can only compare to rotten fish. It seems that maybe the fish like it so much cause it stinks so bad.
Not only is this a pain to open but the product smells like rotten fish. The only thing I can say is thank goodness its for my fish and not for me. The fish likes it I am giving it 5 stars.
Summary: If the fish likes it then so do I
