Would my pellets and flakes be safer in the fridge since the temps have hit the 80s and 90s and are likely to stay there?

They're dried, so I don't really see a problem. It's less like meat, and more like flour or beef jerky.

If you put them in the fridge, it might do more harm than good when condensation forms.

Okay. I was just curious because of the oil in them.

Interesting point.... The nutrients might degrade a bit, but I don't think it would be toxic. I know some people who buy fish food in bulk and keep their unused portion in the freezer...
