i've only tried it on the one fish, but i had a big scare yesterday that i'm suspicious was the fault of the bio-gold... i just switched space ghost to hikari a week and a half ago because i had bought a pack before i knew it wasn't the greatest, and i realized that the wardley pellets i'd been using were very expired, so since money was very tight i thought i'd just use the bio-gold until payday rather than buy something new. two days in, he bloated up. never happened before, but i didn't think much of it because i thought i might have just overfed him what with adjusting to the new tiny pellet size. for a little while it seemed to come and go. then out of the blue, SBD yesterday- he couldn't swim to the bottom of the tank, started floating on his side wedged behind the filter, it really freaked me out. i have never ever had this happen with wardley pellets, not on either of my previous fish, and i don't think they're very good pellets themselves. chucked the bio-gold in the trash immediately and borrowed money from a friend to get some NLS today. fortunately he recovered this evening after being cupped with epsom salt & a bit of java moss to help him keep upright overnight, but man, i don't trust that food at all now. there was nothing else in the tank that changed.
I feed NLS and Omega One Buffet pellets and I also give frozen brine shrimp and blood worms.
I'm also a pet food snob and do lots of research on what's the best to feed my animals.
Kytkattin, what food do you feed your cats? Sounds like it would be an awesome add to my ferrets' mix. Like cats, ferrets are also obligate carnivores. Mine eat a mix of Evo Turkey/Chicken, Wysong Epigen 90, and Ziwipeak Lamb kibbles. They also get freeze dried beef and lamb patties that are 100% meat. They also get fresh raw on occasion. :)
For me, I feed NLS almost exclusively, with Atison's Pro or Hikari FD bloodworms soaked in Vita-Chem from time to time. I'm considering switching from NLS' Betta Formula to the Thera-A because of the higher garlic content. Does anyone use Thera-A and if so, what are your thoughts?
Myates, here's hoping you see this: would you recommend Golden Pearls for an adult male betta? I've been really curious about it after hearing some rave reviews, but most people seem to be saying that they feed them to their fry, not to adult fish.
Option, I've seen the ingredients list of the Ken's betta pellets and am not impressed. Wheat is the first ingredient, soybean meal is pretty high on the ingredients list, and there's blood pork meal and artificial colour enhancers in there. I guess you could give it a try and see if your fish like it, but judging solely on the ingredients, it doesn't seem like a brilliant product.
