I purchased this food and attempted to feed it to all my tanks to see how they would take to a new food. The tanks are as follows: live bearers (molly, platy, endler), tropicals (neons, cardinals, xray tetras, apistos, rams), another tank of tropicals (endlers, glo-lights, sae, cories), shrimp tanks (crs, cherries, otos, chili rasbora) and lastly my high tech tank (ember tetras, white clouds, oil cats, pencil fish, Amanos).
Each time i fed the tanks, i waited 30 minutes and pulled the food out fearing waste and fouling the water. one time i left the food for half a day (5 hours) and when i returned it was not on the suction cup anymore! yay!... No! it merely split and fell on the floor. even the cories avoid it.
No offense new Era, but none of my fish like this formulation. They would likely have to starve a week for them to peck at it like in the videos on youtube...
Please save your money and get beefheart, beef liver, and earthworm flakes or pellets. They will be appreciated
