NLS is a step above Omega One as well, and not just because of the artificial colors.
I'll definitely give it a try. Thanks.

It's time to give NLS a shot. I wasn't aware PetCo had it. There is one near me, I just know they're more expensive but I will get NLS there now that I know where to buy it locally.

Thanks everyone. I stopped bye a Petco on my way home and bought some NLS pellets and some Omega flakes. I just did my rounds feeding the fish and they seemed to like it seeing as thou they went wild once they got a taste.
I've been useing Tetra min flakes, frozen brine and bloodworms.
Thanks for all your replies!

The ingredient list looks good, whole fish meal. Petsmart has it on sale often, I still buy small or medium containers. I really don't know how long flakes stay 'fresh' so I don't get the large containers.

I've never seen NLS in any store, local or chain.
If you want to save a bit of money and buy fish food in bulk, you can put the food in Ziploc bags and freeze them. This keeps the food fresh a lot longer.

Looks like I'll have to get my NLS online. Grocery stores have a better selection of fish food than my local Petco. Does anybody know if Petco stores are franchises or company owned ? It's like 2 miles from my house. Beyond that, I get involved in 10 miles of major traffic. I'd like to give them an earful if it would make a difference.

I agree. My fish have all been exclusively eating NLS Thera A for maybe 3 years now.

There are flakes - I think they are called H2O flakes. Amazon has the best prices on NLS.

Omega One is not the best in the world. I have never heard of it doing what NLS can do over and over and again. Any food is the best if you have yet to try better.

NLS is almost all pellets. They do make flakes but I wouldn't recommend them. Pellets fill fish up better, are cleaner, and preserve their nutrition better.

I personally like Omega One too. Can't remember why. NLS has grain in the second ingredient I think. O-o
