    $4.99 a sac is really a big bargan, but none of the 8 I purchased surpassed 200g with bag on the scale; and specially one of them is under 150g which is way below of the NET WEIGHT of 226.8g writen on the package. So this makes me think that perhaps this is the reason of the promo.

                  The fish like it... they seem healthy .. enjoy good longevity/color..I fill a small container and freeze the remainder of food.
                  Have raised fish for decades ... this food meets my criteria for success.

                      Good food, without the high price tag. Not full of fake colouring. It is the only food I feed my Guppies and they gobble it right up.

                                Yes, the Big Al's Staple Flake Food can be used for marine fish, but it isn't the best choice for marine fish.

                                Unfortunately there isn't an exact amount as there are many factors that will determine the amount. I would recommend starting with a pinch of Big Al's Staple Flake food. If all the food is eaten within two minutes add some more. Whatever is left uneaten after 2 minutes should netted away to ensure your water isn't fouled.
