Fish flakes are the most common (and easiest) foods for your fish. You should keep them fresh, and replace old flake food after a few months. Also, even though guppies and tetras will eagerly accept flake foods, you should add other types of food to avoid health problems. Make certain that you use flake foods that are formulated for tropical fish.
I currently have six neon tetras and one male betta in a ten gallon tank. It has not been cycled yet. I set the tank up just today, and I got the neon tetras yesterday. I’ve had the betta for about a month. I have a sponge filter, and I am ordering a heater tomorrow. Currently the temperature of the tank ranges from 58 to 73 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the time of day, but I should have the heater within at most two weeks, which will keep the temperature between around 73 to 83 degrees Fahrenheit. Would it be possible to add two to four more neon tetras, and/or six to eight glass catfish, or would this be too crowded? And if I can, when should they be added? Also, my betta refuses to eat anything but BettaMin fish flakes, which has small red fish flakes and freeze dried brine shrimp. Would it be ok if the tetras ate this, or should I take care to only have them eat pellet food for community fish? Thanks!

Doing a quick review here of a good fish food that I use a lot on my tanks and the fish really like this stuff. But I really like is that it's not super messy inside the aquarium because a lot of regular tropical flakes have a tendency to disperse everywhere and get super messy. The Tetra Min Tropical Crisps are a nice clean way to go. Very happy customer here.Pick something labeled for tropical or community fish from these brands and you should be fine. ie: omega one freshwater flakes ("for all tropical fish"), Tetramin tropical flakes,etc..TetraMin Tropical Flakes consist of ingredients scientifically blended to ensure the delivery of the proper nutrients.
