Yeah now that you mention it, I've been looking around online and have found 3 different ingredients lists for this food....I can't trust a company that won't give out an honest list...

NLS does sink as they are semi-floating. The trick is to feed one pellet at a time and wait for the fish to eat it before dropping the next pellet.
They are the best pellet I've found after the Attison's Betta Pro. Unfortunatelly, I only have 2 jars of Attison's left and it's not being produced anymore. The stuff Ocen Nutrition is producing now doesn't convince me as quality food... shame, shame.
There's a product being used by breeders now that I might try out once I run out of Attison's.

My NLS pellets don't sink. I have the betta formula.

I only feed NLS. I don't drop it from a great height as that's just asking for the pellet to sink. Like vilmarisv mentioned, I feed one pellet at a time. Two out of three of my boys will pick the gravel for food, but knowing that every pellet is eaten is still nice.

I did an experiment this morning and dropped all four of his pellets in the tank at the same time. He ate them all and none of them sank.
