I called them on the phone ... instead of speaking to a computer or getting an answering service I think I spoke with one of the owners.

  • With Atison's being bought out by a larger company like SF Bay, it really reduces your options.
  • The other owner of the PrettyB fish food company is very knowledgeable when it comes with marine life and if you research the food & UltraColor you should stumble upon the thread I came across.
  • I think it would be a great benefit to anyone that actually wants to betta the breed to have a little more control over what they're feeding to their critters.
  • Live foods are nice, but not an option for everyone due to financial costs.
  • Dry foods are a nice staple, but you're limited to what's out there.
  • A lot of the companies other lines of fish foods were discontinued due to lack of interest. It's very hard for a small company to know how to market their products when they're competing with the giants who have connections with the pet stores.
  • I have no idea how much food they produce when they're testing out new recipes, but I'm sure they still have the master formula for the betta food & I think they would be happy to mix up a small batch for a group of ready & willing buyers in each region.
  • If the company is willing to create a new batch, we could organize a group buy of sorts
  • I think their prices are really reasonable & they use better ingredients than most of the other types of food I've seen.
  • Like I said before I don't know too many people in my area that are into bettas. They're hardcore reefers though.

  • I've also heard a lot of people complain about size of the pellets, strong odors & the sinking factor.

HBH "Betta Bites"
http://www.hbhpet.com/Products/image...ettabites.html

This has the whole label with ingredients and guaranteed Analysis.

I use this mostly due to size, slightly smaller than Omega One.
