      A short while back I had run out of pellet food for my stable so on the way home from work I figured I would stop at Petsmart and grab a bag of pellets to tide them over until I placed my online food order.Well, all they had was this stuff which seems to be their house brand so I bought it thinking that while it may not be the best food for my fish it certainly cant be the worst on a temporary basis.But boy oh boy,after about a week of tossing in about a small handful a day the water in two of my tanks was stained orange!.....I'm not sure about the quality of their orher products but I know,I won't be buying anymore more Top Fin pellets.

      I bought some basically under the same circumstances a couple of years ago, and noticed very little was digested. Basically it seemed like 85% of what the fish ate was excreted a couple of hours later. Definitely does not get the Good Housekeeping seal of approval.

      That sucks and takes a minute to get your water looking right again.

      I don't like to give anything neon coloured to my fish.

      I can imagine the colorful stringy results of feeding this junk to a tank full of plecos.
