My fridge went bad for 24 hours. All the frozen food melted. Temp was still cold, but not frozen cold. Now the fridge is working again but I wonder if I should feed my fish those food?

if the food defrosted then I think the timer has started. I wouldn't try and refreeze it. Kinda reminds me of when my freezer stopped working as a kid and I got to eat an entire tub of ice cream..

LOL - this just happened to me - my son left the freezer door open. The Larrys Reef food was defrosted. I re-froze it - and fed it with no ill effects. I'm not recommending that - but given the cost - I do not think its an issue. On the other hand - if it seriously smells bad, etc - then - perhaps not. But - look at sharks eating dead whales for weeks. etc etc. I would highly doubt there would be a problem (and for me there was not) - I believe it was thawed for about 24 hours
