I'm guessing that's the new product... On the flipside, it's the only thing he's not gotten digestive issues from. As far as I've experienced, Fizz is a bit special, diet-wise.
Nope, you've got the old blend. The new version has wheat flour as the first ingredient and MSG (monosodium glutamate, the allergy-causing stuff in cheap Chinese take-away food) listed right after the garlic.

Ever heard of this brand of food before?

I'm using Ultracolor Community Fish Food.

I have the 5oz container. The ingreddients are top notch and no wheat gluten. They had a betta specific food, but only about 5 people bought it, so it was discontinued.

I forget who mentioned it in this forum, but wheat gluten is not a good ingredient, but I think all the fish food has gluten in it, except for this Ultracolor brand stuff.

Let me know what you guys think. I'll be adding this my bettas dinner menu a couple times a week.

Here's the ingredient list.

Quality Ingredients Make The Difference
Guaranteed Analysis:

Crude Protein (min) 56%, Crude Fat/Oil (min) 8.5%, Crude Fiber (max) 3%, Moisture (max) 10%

Ingredients:
Herring Meal, Kelp Meal, Squid Meal, Spiruliana, Garlic, Chlorella Algae, Yeast, Yeast Extract, Paprika Oleoresin, DL Methionine, Brewers Dried Yeast, Lecithin, L-Threonine, L-Tryptophan, Choline Chloride, Isoleucine, Marigold Extract, Betaine Anhydrous, LAscorbyl- 2-Polyphosphate (Source of Stabilized Vitamin C), Rosemary Extract, Mixed Tocopherols, Astaxanthin, Beta Carotene, Canthaxanthin, Inositol, Vitamin E Supplement, Biotin), Niacinamide, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Manganous Oxide, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (Source of Vitamin K3), Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Acetate, Calcium Iodate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Selenium Yeast, Dried Bacillus subtilis Fermentation Product, Bacillus Licheniformis, Bacillus Pumilus, Bacillus Coagulans, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus Fermentation Product, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae.

Well, Bettas need food specifically for them. If your food has wheat gluten, I don't suggest it. It's a cheap filler to boost protein from wheat extract.

I use the Hakari, micro pellets, have been since I got Sammy, and they float, and I love that reason, the NLS sink, and Omega one are good, and I think they float, so It depends on that..Yes the ingredients are better, in NLS..but unless your fish is a chaser, you will be doing a lot of cleanup, and then you don't know if the food that does sink is beeing eaten later, and that is overfeeding..Sammy and Sapphire both Love the Hakari Gold, micro pellets, they are very tiny..and easy to feed:)
