  1. Thought it might help people if we all posted the ingredients in our manufactured goldfish food. I'll go first: Ocean Nutrition Spirulina Flakes It's ingredients are as follows: "Plant meals, Spirulina, Fish soluables, whole sardine, salmon fillets, lecithin, krill, kelp, brewars yeast, salmon oil, mineral premix, vitamin premix, brine shrimp embryos, adult brine shrimp, caroteniod pigments and preservatives.

I ran all 3 pumps in their "wide open/full throttle" mode because the Tetra isn't adjustable, but the Rena and Coralife pumps are. The Rena adjusts by screwing 2 plastic airflow control needles into the air passage and just blocking the pump's output, while the pump motor itself still runs at full throttle. The Coralife actually turns down the voltage to the pump. All 3 pumps were hooked up to the black silicone hose that powers the 46" long Marineland bubble stick, which is located under about 1" of gravel at the bottom of my 70 gallon aquarium. I checked the output of the bubble stick during each test and the Tetra produced the most amount of bubbles. The Rena and Coralife were visually the same bubble output. Judge for yourself.
