Thinking about switching back...

So yes I am thinking about switching back to Omega One next time I get my betta new food...I am using NLS now and it's a great food, but the size of the container is just ridiculous....especially since I only have one betta...I buy a new container for my betta every 6 months to make sure he is eating fresh food and buy the time that 6 months has passed, it looks like I didn't use any at all...I feel bad being so wasteful...

So do you think switching to Omega One is good or bad?

Omega One is a good food. That's what I've been feeding my bettas for a few months now.

One solution is to get more bettas

I am appalled at the size/price of the Omega One Betta Pellets, a tiny container for $3+

LOL no can do!

They are expensive, but I am buying a new container every six months, and the container of NLS costs more, so why would it matter to me? I would be spending less money overall....But money isn't the issue anyway...

I actually have to feed my bettas less of the Omega One than what I was feeding them before (Wardley's lol). Wardley's pellets were bigger and I was giving each of them 6-8 pellets a day. But I found with Omega One, 4 per day was just right. Maybe because of what it's made of, when I first started feeding them Omega One, I gave them the same amount as I did the Wardley's pellets, but they got really bloated. So I dunno- $3 for a small container might be worth it when you feed them half as much as you did with another type that comes in a bigger container.

I feed NLS and also Atison's Betta Food. I put some NLS in a small bottle it so I only open the bigger container when the small one runs out.

That's a good idea....But it would take me MY lifetime to go through a bottle of NLS, let alone the fish's! lol!

Why do you need to switch it every 6 months? To make sure the food is fresh? Can't you put it in the freezer to make it last longer?

Well I guess 6 months to a year is fine...But yeah to make sure it's fresh. I think the freezer only works so long...and moisture gets in the food when you freeze it.
