Huh. I knew they advertised that it had color enhancers, but I didn't know if it really worked or not. Now I'll have to try it. :)

And AlwaysBettaLover, they do carry it at Petsmart, at least the two in my area. :)

I disagree with the best food statement. Nutritionally, even the baby pellets are low grade, it's the added color enhancers. Omega One is top with high quality ingredients. Whole fish is first, not meal or wheat (which would NEVER be eaten by a betta in the wild.)

Waterdog has written an excellent food comparison thread. It lists the ingredients for many foods, including Hikari. You may want to check it to see what's in the different foods.

eehh.. Hikari's okay. x: i love New Life Spectrum better, though. the Grow formula's teeny, and even the smallest betta can eat them.

As I mentioned hikari has MSG, and NLS has beta carotene to offset the Ethoxyquin

I've been feeding the NLS pellets and they've done a great job with my guys. Their fins have grown long and grow back quickly after an injury or fin rot, and their colors are definitely brighter than when I bought them. I wonder if you could feed a combination of the hikari and the NLS? IE, feed NLS in the AM and a couple of hikari at night, with possibly a third or fourth NLS at that same evening feed?

i used to feed my babes a mixture of various pellets. i don't even remember all that was in the mix. i remember Attison's, and NLS Grow... my tiny CT gal doubled in size in a short time. the protein in the NLS helped with that, and fin issues.
