Tetra Gel Feeder block - a great alternative to automatic feeders
The Tetra Gel feeder block is a great alternative to using an automatic feeder if you don't have the time or want the hassle of setting one up before you go on vacation. It also depends on how long you are gone for, how big your fish is and how greedy he is. My old goldfish Gizmo ate one half block in one gulp!! My two baby goldfish loved it and ate the whole block after we left on vacation this Christmas for 5 days.
The water remained clean and there was no messy residue or foul smell in the water. I understand some people have complained of all three things but perhaps they may have got an expired product. I have never had any such problems in the past or now so I am happy that this product is in the market. The gel blocks are way better than the white plaster ones as those do cloud water and I don't believe the fish are getting enough food from those small blocks.
If I was going away for more than 5 days then yes, I would put on the automatic feeder instead, like we did in September when we went away on vacation for 3 weeks.
I hope this review is helpful to some as it was to me. Thanks for reading and happy shopping! Dr's Foster and Smith is my all time favourite online fish store. Not only are their prices reasonable but their service is excellent and the variety of products they carry are amazing.

This product works as advertised
I have used this feeder a number of times without any problems. The fish do like to feed from the blocks.

I use these to feed my plecos when I'm not around to give them fresh veggies. They don't break down without help from the fish and don't foul the water like some veggie tablets I've used. They make my "away" weekends worry free!
