No it doesn't. It has a few protein sources (whole animal meals like krill) and then one grain in the whole food which is a binder, something EVERY food has to have or it will not stay together. It also only has ethoxyquin as a preservative in the meals only as required by law, not added to the food as a whole (most foods add much more of this and other preservatives).

Omega One has more grain ingredients than NLS.

Has anyone ever seen a mandarin eat NLS? How about a fire eel? Anyone had galaxy rasboras breed on accident while eating NLS exclusively? How about crayfish? NLS can do what other foods can't, over and over.

I love mandarins, so sweet around Christmas time. Lol no clue what you are talking about.
And I'm pretty sure a grain is the second ingredient in the betta formula. o-o

Third, as needed so that it is actually a pellet. No artificial colors, unnecessary preservatives, better results, and only one grain ingredient (Omega One's betta food has two grains, like their other foods, which means together they are probably more than the ingredients listed before the grains, this is called ingredient splitting).

Don't take offence to this but the way you talk about NLS in every thread just seems like they pay you to do that. o-o
I don't know, I don't nit pick at details, unless I can see the process of making it, the small details don't add up to much. The only deal breaker for me is if one of these companies used Atlantic species as ingredients. I'd be gone. :s

I recommend NLS because I have seen how much better it is than any other food on the market, for now.

So you don't like the details, when they dont' support your opinion.

Anyone else: Just try NLS. Worst case you are one of the few exceptions where your fish don't have better health and colors and a cleaner tank. More likely you are in the majority who keep feeding it exclusively because you see how much better it is.

The details don't tell me anything... I don't know if these fish are farmed, wild caught in the Atlantic, are these grains organic? Those are the important things, and no fish food tells you that...

So you are saying that NLS isn't good because it has grain as the third ingredient, but also saying that the details don't really matter at all because no fish food company will tell you the 'important' details.

The most important thing is how well your fish do on it, and most do much better on NLS.

If your food will turn my threadfin golden brown then I will take it back. I love that colour but they never seem to get that way for anyone. Too bad he doesn't eat pellets. :/

He will eat pellets if you get it hungry. Fish can go weeks without food, most people don't get their fish hungry enough to try new foods.

NLS and Omega One are both solid foods imo.
