For my new 40 gal Uniquarium, I need to know what kind of food to use for tropical fish. The flakes float right across the water into the filter slots. I tried pellets, but they sank and now none of my (most are mid swimmer) fish can get food. I tried mixing flakes with water but it sank too, although fish could get some, but it turned the water murky. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Aqueon fish foods were formulated by aquatic hobbyists using premium ingredients to provide nutrients for fish. This assures a healthy diet that will bring out the true color and energy of every fish. A popular choice among fishkeepers, Aqueon Flake Foods come in different assortments such as tropical, goldfish, color-enhancing, spirulina and marine. Extruded foods, or more commonly known as granules, pellets, rounds or wafers, are easily digestible and give fish a hardier diet when compared to flakes. Whether a tropical fish, betta, goldfish, cichlid or bottom feeder, a pellet food is available for each fish type. Freeze-dried fish foods can be fed to fish as a treat or as part of a staple diet, depending on the blend. For additional nutrients they can also be soaked in vitamin and mineral mixtures prior to feeding. Fish Food for Tropical Fish and Reef Aquariums - Marine Depot

Yes, in a pinch goldfish food is fine for tropical fish. It will not hurt them at all. I feed my goldfish the same as all my other fish, nothing but NLS.This section of the articles library do not only include feeding guidelines and different opinions regarding fish food, but also has a lot of articles about how to raise live food for your fish by cultivating Brine shrimp, Daphnia, Fruit flies, Vinegar eels, microworms etcetera. You can also create your own tropical fish food for herbivore species from vegetables. A high quality flake or pellet food is a good base for many tropical fish species that except non-live food and that base can then be supplemented with your home-grown treats to ensure a varied and well balanced diet. If you do not want to grow your own food, most fish stores will sell frozen meaty foods that you can store in your freezer. In this section you will find articles about different types of tropical fish food and how to feed you fish in order to ensure optimal health. Correct feeding is also very important if you want to breed fish, since certain food types or an increased amount of food can trigger spawning in many species. If you are a beginner fish keeper we recommend some of the introductory articles that describe the different types of available fish foods and how to feed your fish. You can also go to the articles library and look up your specific species in order to find more detailed information about their requirements and ideal diet. You will also find such information in the species database."Almost Natural Tropical Fish Foods" are offered by a true-blue tropical fish hobbyist for the other tropical fish hobbyists out there in the world who would rather go the extra mile and feed their fish a top quality tropical fish flake.

Providing your fish with a varied diet is always recommended, since a varied diet makes it easier for you fish to obtain all necessary nutrients. Keep in mind that even a predatory fish species can eat algae or plant material in the wild, and therefore slowly begin to suffer from malnutrition in an unplanted aquarium that has been vigorously scrubbed clean from algae. Herbivore fish species that feed chiefly on plant material and plankton will usually gulp down a tiny insect or some zoo plankton in the wild, something that will be hard to do when kept in captivity and feed only plant based flake food.What I will point out to you, however, is what I consider to be all of the important information concerning the "Almost Natural Tropical Fish Foods" and simply allow you to draw your own conclusions from your own comparisons.
