Is tetra fish food any good?

Tetra’s color tropical fish flakes are inexpensive and good quality. They come in a large tub, which means that you won’t have to keep restocking your fish food, either, while also offering good value for money. The flakes are large, with very few complaints of small flakes and dust in the container.

Do you feed tetra fish everyday?

You should feed your fish two to three times daily. A few flakes per fish is sufficient. The fish should eat all the food in two minutes or less. Overfeeding can cloud your water and harm your fish.

Can tetra fish live without food?

Registered. Most fish can go at least a week or two without being fed and would probably be fine. 4 weeks is a pretty long time; but I’d be more concerned about the lack of maintenance (water changes) throughout that time rather than the lack of food.

What will tetras eat?

Most tetras are omnivorous and will thrive on Aqueon Tropical Flakes, Color Flakes, Tropical Granules and Shrimp Pellets. Frozen and live foods can also be fed as treats or to help induce spawning. For best results, rotate their diet daily and feed only what they can consume in under 2 minutes, once or twice a day.

How long does a tetra fish live?

Neon tetra fish have a longer lifespan than most aquarium fish. They are expected to live longer than 5 years. With the right environment, these fish could live for 8 to 10 years. A neon tetra will usually live for an average of 8 years in the wild, but in an aquarium, that lifespan gets shortened to 5.

How do you keep tetras alive?

For most tetras, pH should be between 6.8 and 7.8, alkalinity between 3° and 8° dkH (50 ppm to 140 ppm) and temperature between 75° and 80° F. If the aquarium is kept in rooms below 75°, use an Aqueon Aquarium Heater to maintain the correct temperature. Exceptions like the Buenos Aires tetra do better in cooler water.

How many days can a neon tetra live without food?

Three weeks is about maximum. In a planted tank, probably a bit longer. They’ll probably be skinny when you get them back, but if water quality holds out, they should be okay. Just feed them plenty of good food when you get them.
