Tetra Vacation Food Review (Holiday Fish Food)

Just wanted to give a positive review for the Tetra Vacation “Slow Release Feeder” Holiday fish food, which feeds up to 14 days.

I went for a vacation for around 12 days, and came back to zero fish/snail/shrimp deaths, and perfectly healthy fish!

The fish I had were:

  • 5 neon tetras
  • 2 lambchop rasboras
  • 2 Rili Shrimp
  • 1 Amano Shrimp
  • 2 Horned Nerite Snails

All were surviving well after the vacation. It was quite clear that the shrimp and snails were able to eat the food as well (I saw them eating the food, as well as their poop on the feeding dish).

Tips for using the Tetra Vacation fish food

  1. I think the key is not to put too much. If you only have a few tetras, estimated of 1/8 of the entire block will be more than enough. The entire block is overkill and may increase the chances of polluting the water.
  2. Buy a plastic dish (food safe), such as Melamine Plastic Sauce Dishes, 1 oz, 2-3/4″, White (Set of 15) to hold the food and prevent contact with substrate. I found that this reduces the chance of the Tetra holiday food turning mouldy. This is a cheap but still viable alternative to the proper method which is to use a Shrimp feeding dish such as Senzeal 2X Aquarium Glass Shrimp Feeding Dish Bowls Reptiles Water Food Dish Feeder Bowl Round.

Tetra Vacation food packaging looks like the ones below:

  1. Long ago I had waited years for my local pet shop to get African Snakeheads in. When they did they were tiny and expensive. I bought one. He was big enough to eat guppies, so we went on vacation and I put a bunch of guppies in there for him to eat. When we returned I looked in the tank and he was gone! I found him dried up on the floor. He jumped out through an unbelievably tiny opening in the hood by the heater. 😦
