You can't really go wrong with the different formulas that NLS has. I believe the ingredients are BASICALLY the same, with differeing amounts of protein, etc.
The small fish formula (0.5 mm) is a great one, actually, because of the high protein content... which is 45%. This is what I feed my smaller fish that can't eat the larger 1 mm pellets, including my betta. If it was available at the store where I got my NLS foods, I would have gotten the Thera A
small fish formula. Instead I got the regular small fish formula. The Thera A stuff just has extra garlic in it, which is supposed to be good for keeping parasites at bay. The regular foods all have garlic in them anyway, jut the Thera A has more of it.
