- I've also tried the tetra gel feeders.I bought the daphnia variety,my fish were not very interested in it.They did try it,but,clearly do not like it much as it is left in the tank for days being ignored,eventually being consumed by snails and shrimps.I mentioned this to a friend who does use tetra gel feeders successfully.She told me the daphnia variety is her fishes least favourite,they enjoy the bloodworm and brine shrimp variety a lot more.I haven't yet tried these varieties with my fish yet,but will do.
- Never decomposed, even after five weeks, and most of my fish died. It was only supposed to last for a week!!!

- I was gone for two weeks and did not lose one fish with the gel feeders. I am not sure, though, how much the fish ate. I used them again a few weeks ago with the same results.
Only feeders we use
- I have used the gel packs many times; the fish go directly to it when they see it falling. I put two in since when the (lazy) pleco realizes it is there he swims over and defends it as his easy food source. Never have any remnants when I get back. Of course I do not know if they last the length of time they say they will, but I put two 7 day feeders in my 35 gallon tank and there were no dead fish after being gone 10 days.

- We went on a 10-day excursion to Florida and decided to use a gel feeder for our 10 gallon tank. To our surprise, they didn't touch it. We have one velvet platy, two gouramis, a neon tetra and a painted tetra. I forgot to test the chemical make-up of the tank before and after, but to my naked eye, there wasn't much change.

Gel feeders - my fish won't touch them.
- I went away for a week. I have eight tanks, and not one of them had fish that would touch the gel feeder blocks. Next time I think I will break them in half so they can get at some food. The outside gel coating is so effective, and lasts so long in water, that the fish don't detect it's food.
