Fish Food Flakes That Is Gluten Free?

Recommended Posts

Is there one out there? I have tetramin flakes and of course they have gluten and I HATE using them, especially cleaning the tank and I end up showering since I have to have my whole arm in there.

Thanks :)

Can your fish eat brine shrimp or something like that? I haven't found a gluten-free fish flake or pellet food yet. I have a small pond and brought in my koi and goldfish this year. I get the food that comes in a plastic jar that can be reclosed tightly. So far so good. I only have a bunch of smaller bowls so we use a dump and transfer but it sounds like you have a larger tank. It might help to siphon the water out of the tank till it gets to a level where it is low enough so that heavy rubber gloves can keep your arms safe from contact. Something that might also help would be a back scrubber with a handle that you only use for cleaning the tank. Hope this helps.

I'm interested in this one, too.

I think the fish food is the only gluten item left in the house & my dh is pretty messy with it, so I would LOVE to be done with it.

I have seen that the vacation food doesn't have gluten (the blocks). I wonder if it's healthy for the fish on a long-term basis? (Or if it's financially ridiculous to consider?)

Thanks I could feed some of them shrimp, well the older ones, as we have babies too. Although 6 of them are shrimp and it almost feels cannabalistic :lol: Im not sure on the vacation food, I think mine would peck at it all day they are little piggies.

I have mollys, platys, shrimp, apple snails, plectocomus (spelling) and baby mollys. I have a 100 gallon tank so its not possible to not get my arm in while vaccuming the tank. My shrimp and snails keep it pretty clean but at the minimum once a month it needs to be done.

Yes, I had to stop eating Schar bread because I was getting sick on it all the time. I believe if I am not mistaken (it has been a long time) the Artisan line does not. I received this tip from someone else, and I don’t know if it is accurate but it seemed to help me, at least.
