if the date on the food is expired, don't give it to your fish. buy some new food and always check the expiry date on the food-packet.

I've never heard of that practice! I don't think the food would hurt your fish, but it might be of low nutritional value. You are already leary of it, so I say get rid of it just for peace of mind.

I think I would take it back to the store. If they have a practice of deliberately selling out of date food and then covering it up makes you wonder what other shady practices they have. Carol
