Brand names are *mostly* preference as long as you're only considering the better brand names (i.e. not store brands). I've been a big fan of Wardley for a long time when it comes to prepared foods, and I buy Hikari for all of my frozen foods. However, I recently got a Jack Dempsey and got him some Omega One cichlid pellets, and I was *very* impressed with both the nutrition info and the actual ingredients list. For example, compare these ingredients:
Top Fin (Petsmart's store brand) betta pellets:
Fish meal, wheat flour, soybean meal, krill meal, corn gluten meal, stablized fish oil, squid meal, yeast....
Omega One Natural Protein Formula Freshwater Flakes:
Whole salmon, halibut, black cod, whole herring, whole shrimp, whole krill, wheat flour, wheat gluten, fresh kelp...
