    REVIEW
    I took a page out of the inappropriate reefer's book and decided to try feeding this flake to my pair of Black ice snowflake clowns. They can't resist it. So it seems like a win to me. Plus, the container is way bigger than I expected. I'll be good on flake forlod for a long time.

    I alternate feeding this a couple of time a week and my fish seem to love it. Only downside is that half way through the container most of the food is all powdered up into tiny pieces.
