    Expired food?

    My LFS was selling a whole box load of expired dainichi for $2 each for any size. The expiry date listed 12/2011 so 2 months old. I bought a med bag of ultimate krill, veggie, and xl pro. The price was too good to pass up and only $6. Anyone feed off dated food? Did it give the fish the ****s?

    I don't feed it on purpose plus my fish eat it before it can expire. It should be fine. I don't see anything wrong with it. Does it smell like normal and does it taste like normal (please let the fish tell you the last one). My logic is I have been eating expired food (people food) since I was little and i'm ok.

    I'm pretty sure thats illegal. And I'm pretty sure the the fish food company can sue the store for selling there expired product bc the company is at fault If it kills ur fish. As VERY unlikely anything with go wrong I'm just talkin in technicals

    The company wouldn't be liable for your fish because the food is expired but the store would be if they blatantly sold the food on sale because it was expired

    That's funny because I just bought some Massivore from an online dealer and it was expired as well. However, I was not aware of this when I purchased it. I'm not sure if the strong smell coming from the bag is normal because I've never bought massivore before. It doesn't look rotten but if it's anything like dog food, it would have lost its nutritional benefits in June of 2011. lol

    Thanks for the replies. It doesnt smell bad at all, the lfs had a big sign on the shelf saying "off date dainichi food 2.99 any size". So far my geos, keyholes, sarpaes, cl, festivum, and brochis love the ultima krill.

    Keep it in the freezer to extend it's lifespan. It might not have any vitamin C or other fragile vitamins left, but it's still calories and minerals, and as long as you have fresh food, too, it's fine to use older food as part of the diet.
    Oscarum Monstruoso:
    In my experience, people who are so eager and open about the prices they pay are usually lying in order to hide how much they actually paid. The way you can tell who is lying is to ask them for topless pics of their wife. If they comply, they are open and honest and are most likely telling the truth. If they won't, then you know that they're not sharing the true amount they paid.
