I have what is now a very many years old, and very large, 'rescue' Comet in a 40L. Which was originally sold as a feeder back in the day. Partially Blind from early eye trauma in its sales tank environment. It will only eat what it can forage from the substrate. And this food (along with a few blanched de-hulled peas occasionally) are perfect. The fish loves them both. I pre-soak a couple of pinches of the granules over night in a small 2 Oz. neoprene bottle in the refrigerator, and use a length of 5/8 inch 'rigid thin wall' tubing to distribute the food to exactly where the fish like best to naturally 'forage' at feeding time. This helps to pre-soften (slightly expand) the granules and ensures that the entire volume will sink to where it is needed. With no worries about whether 'floating food' gulped down with surface air might possibly affect the swim bladder. And Tetra always has a great balance of nutrients in their products ingredients.

I have bee keeping gold fish for many years and have always fed them Tetracolor Sinking Goldfish Granules. My fish grow up to 5 inches long and have good color in a 20 gallon tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delila Great food for Goldies !
the size of the food pieces are very small ( works best for young/very small fish ) but my 5-6 inch sized goldfish love it .
The main thing is it sinks fast ...very important to help prevent swim bladder disease.

It was the same I've been feeding my 18 yr old gold fish that is 9 to 10 inches long. Yes it really is hat old & big. It lets me know it''s feeding time by jumping & bumping it's nose on the lid. It lives in a 30 gal rimless tank. I like the sinking rather than flake because it doesn't foul the water..
