Food is preserved with Ethoxyquin, utilizes Blue Lake 2 and Yellow Lake 5 as artificial coloring agents, contains synthetic vitamin K, uses Cornstarch in addition to wheat, rice, and soybean. The terrestrial starch content is too high to be considered healthy and the fish meal utilized is purchased on the open market, most likely from China. You can do much better than any Tetra food product.
Started using with my fish when they were 1.5" and they loved it then and they still love it now! It covers the top feeders and sinks enough to get the midrange feeders. My fish make light work of this food!

Great Food....Fish love it...Fish look very healthy All my africans love it as well as the fry, when crushed.....However its very expensive locally, not sure why.......I always order it online tho, way cheaper.
I like to combine flakes and pellets at feeding time, so I don't use it for coloring. The fish eat it quickly and don't leave much behind. My Rainbow shark will take care of what is left over on the ground. I have just found that some of the cichlid's lose some flake out of the gills. But if my fish like it, I like it.
I DONT KNOW ABOUT ANYONE ELSE, BUT MY MIXED AFRICANS ARE PIGS LIKE I'VE NEVER SEEN. THEY THROW DOWN THIS FOOD LIKE THERE STARVING. OH,THEY GET FED 3-4 TIMES DAILY....30SEC. TO 1MIN.FEASTS.OH THEY LIKE IT ALSO...

"A decent cichlid staple food source"
I use these flakes for some of my smaller new world cichlids, anything that is too small/picky to eat the larger pellets.
