Product Description[edit]

  • Tropical fish crisp food with colour enhancers.

This is a flake like food consisting of small discs of several colours. Unlike normal flake food, this flake is slightly thicker and so quickly sinks. But remains largely intact on the bottom. Tetra GmbH calls this type of food - the Crisp.

Aquarists notes[edit]

This crisp is taken very quickly by most omnivours and herbivore fish. But carnivores will ignore it. So aquatic frogs don't take to it either. But I've found that freshwater snails and shrimp do like it.

I like the way this crisp stays on the surface briefly before slowly sinking so that surface, middle and bottom feeders can get their share. It also doesn't dissolve into a million pieces like flake food. Also by the time you reach the bottom of the tub you'll find it hasn't turned into dust like most flake food.
