For the first five days they ate powdered freeze dried blood worms but now they're switched to powdered tetra goldfish flakes and they'll soon be switched to crushed granules (I'm feeding them from smallest to largest basically, because crushed granules don't crush as small as crushing flakes and flakes don't crush as small as FDBW)

Cuz it's the only flaked food I have at the moment, and I have a butt load of the stuff, and it's high protien

Oh okay...I don't think that is the best meal for them because I think they have more specific ingredients for goldfish but I might be wrong...

I went through the label, the ingredients both say the same thing as the other tropical stuff at the store, at least in what I saw. I came across it when I had 2 goldfish in a 2g tank, the lfs said it was fine and I believed them I had so many goldfish I went through with that 2g and I thought it was my fault —_—""

Back to the fry! I put some glass beads in the box, and they like hiding under them

Ok I'm not to sure on the ingredients I just figured goldfish food was made specific for goldfish since they have different needs than tropical fish.

I thought the same thing with "Betta Buffet" until I was told it was made with basically the same ingredients and called BETTA to charge more and sell more product...

With some less expensive foods, there usually isn't much of a difference between the different foods for different breeds. When you get into some of the better brands, you find more actual differences in nutrition when it comes to goldfish food vs. betta food vs. tropical food vs. cichlid food.

Ok thank you guys for clearing that up! I wasnt exactly sure I just figured since its goldfish food it might be different! I'm sorry I should have looked it up a little to see if there was a huge difference!

I just read through the ingredients thing on the back of the bottles, very minuscule differences and higher protien in the goldfish food then the tropical food, which is good for young fish growth in general
