but the Hakari is Fish meal, and I have heard that the first 3 ingredients in the formula should be a fish mentioned combo, such as (salmon, halibut, and one other one) then wheat or some other filler, however, I choose Hakari, because It floats and I didn't want to go with one that does not.
The Omega One does float though. It's the NLS that doesn't float.

I just read this article, and I know it's for dog food, but the point is the meat content, because betta fish are carnivores. It basically explains that meat meals in kibble are better than whole meats:

Dogs and Betta Fish have different protein needs. It doesn't matter if they're both carnivores.

Well the point to reading that article is not a dogs nutritional needs (they are actually somewhat omnivorous) its the fact that foods containing fish meal instead of whole fish can have more animal protein in them (which is good for betta)

Oh, yeah. Good point. And yes, I agree to dogs being Omnivores. Some dogs even eat poo. :/

I am actually currently feeding omega one and i think it is high quality but I'm learning that NLS is probably technically higher quality.
