      I would say Omega one color flakes or something by New life spectrum. I know Dustin likes the New life spectrum and recommended it in one of his vids

        Actually I have had very good results overall with Zoomed Spirulina 20. The labdichromis loves it. The tetras have accepted once I got them off the tetramin (like trying to get a kid offr candy and onto veggies). and I’m now on my third gen of live bearers that have beern raised on it from birth.
        I also never do frozen or live food from the store but rather prefer freeze dried because this will kill any parasites and bugs.Thought I’d try the seachem line for the SA fish and see that how that goes (Have a nano fish business in my house in a town with a POP of 1500)

    Omega one, Hikari, and New Life Spectrum are my favorite three brands for fish food.

    I agree with Cameron Omega one, Hikari, and New Life Spectrum are my favorite three brands for fish food.
    If anyone has other brands to add to this list, I would be interested to know what they are?

    well the old chinese ppl that only eat rice which is like 20 pounds for like 2 bucks. aka the cheap stuff and their living longer than any other ppl in the world on average.? that said just becuase something is expensive doesnt mean its good. my discus wont touch new life spectrum but they love OCEAN NUTRITION fish food. new life spectrum is like 6 times the price of ocean nutrition fish food for the same amount on average. the best u can do is read what food is made of dont bother looking at the price. if its all starches its not soo good. should have more protein then starches

    I like Omega products, both dry, frozen or freeze dried. My fish like them also. I can tell by the way they kiss the glass when I feed them. 🙂

    I also at one time gave my fish cheep food and I do have to say that it isn’t just price but also the quality. When I switched to a better quality my fish changed dramatically. Some foods can be a few dollars less than another yet have the same quality. At my fs omega one is cheaper than new life spectrum and yet they both are of very good quality. I feed my fish a varied diet of hikari freeze dried shrimp, new life spectrum pellets, omega one protein flakes. All of these contribute to my fish being healthy and colorful. One of the most important things to remember is to buy food with as little amount of ash as possible. Ash is like junk food for fish, not good. .

    I have Oranda Goldfish inside and feed a combination of New Life Spectrum Freshwater flakes with garlic, Spirulina flakes, and Tetra Goldfish Crisps. I also drop in Shrimp pellets and tubifex worms now and then. One of their favorite treats is peas. Thawed, hulls removed and chopped into smaller pieces. I’m feeding these fish to size and head growth. The protein promotes head growth, the overall balanced diet is good for health, breeding and overall size. Also, I feed at least twice a day. Sometimes 3 and 4 times, depending on the temp and their activity.

    The pond fish get Wardley’s Goldfish flakes.

    I used to be on the NLS train, but recently i switched to custom food by Kens Fish. SERIOUSLY good food at incredible prices. Check him out at kensfish.com I do not work for him in the least (I work in IT) but the food is just great. The fish love it. I have just about all of the flake food: Angel, Tropical, Vege, Cichlid, Spirulina, Color Max, black worm, and some others i am probably forgetting. I also have his pellet food (4 bit blend) and the 5-50micron fry food. Overall, all fish LOVE the food and honestly, it beats the hell out of NLS or Omega One based on price alone. Compare ingredients, they are damn close to the “good” (expensive) stuff 🙂
