Tetrafin Goldfish Flakes
Advantages: Provides nutritional and balanced diet for your fish
Disadvantages: Smells a bit fishy
I keep a large coldwater fish tank at home with around 15 fish in it. I came across TetraFin Fish Flakes when shopping at my local pet shop for some new fish food.
These flakes promise to provide my fish with a balanced and nutritional diet and is also meant to enhance their natural colours.
This comes in a round container which is red. The lid is a twist off lid which is yellow. On the front of the tub there is a picture of some goldfish.
On the back is information about TetraFin and well as an ingredients list.
It has a foil fresh seal underneath the lid when you first but it and you should always check that this is still intact when you buy it as it means the food has not been tampered with.
I buy these flakes from a small pet store in my local town where they cost £3.95 for a 52 gram tub. Price do very quite a lot between different pat shops and obviously the larger tubs will cost more.
TetraFin produce various fish foods such as food for Tropical Fish, Marine Fish etc an these some in a variety of sizes. The tub sizes range from as small as 134 grams and up to 2000 grams. The tub I am reviewing is a 52 gram container.
The actual flakes are a variety of colours ranging from browns, oranges, red, green and yellow. The flakes are the same as most fish food and the easiest thing to compare them to is sugar paper, they have a very thin texture and you can break them down very easily.
The food smells slightly like fish (which I always find quite odd seeing as its meant to be fish food)
How To Feed
I only feed my fish once a day and as a rule, I never feed them more than they can eat. I tend to sprinkle a small amount of flakes into the water and if the fish seems very hungry, I will sprinkle slightly more in there. I do always try to make sure that all the food is eaten as if it's not eaten, it will lay at the bottom of the tank and turn the water dirty. I actually red somewhere that many people end up killing their fish through feeding them too much and the rotting food turning the water stagnant.
This product will endeavour to give your fish a balanced diet, and enhance the natural colour of your Goldfish.
I would recommend this food to any fish owners as I think it is fairly priced and certainly lasts a long time. As I said, I feed my fish once a day and a 52 gram tub probably lasts me around 3 months.
My fish always seem to look healthy and brightly coloured - I am unsure whether this is because this food enhances their natural colour or whether they are just nice coloured fish but this food certainly seems to agree with them.
