so i was just feeding my fish Seachem flakes and the texture of the flake seemed off to me, it must be that it got humid. I didn't mind this much but something else caught my eye.. the flakes fell kind of rough (not sure how else can i describe this) and had a lot of white dots which was very odd in this flake food. So I started messing with the flakes and found a bunch of white little bugs that looked like white fleas moving around, then looked at the food lid and had a bunch of these critters moving around, i was disgusted by it but already dipped my fingers in it so what the heck.

anyway I know fish eat bugs but still didn't like the idea that i fed my fish contaminated food. Also tried taking a picture of these bugs but it is impossible.


see the white pixels in the picture? 😆

I'd toss it and get new. Stay to smaller cans with a tighter lid. Inspect the new can to see if it's similar.
