Which NLS Formula?

The Growth Formula with 50% protein or the Small Fish Formula with ? % protein (I don't even know).

I am currently using the Growth Formula & all is well, but thought I might try the Small Fish Formula Thera A since is has more garlic.

TIA!!!

I'm currently using the Small Fish Formula with the .5mm Sinking Pellets. It has, I think, 48% protein. I will say the pellets are really, really small so they'll fit easily in almost any betta's mouth, even little females. And when I say small, they look like Folger's Crystals. But both my bettas love them, especially my girl for whom I first bought them.

I don't know much about the Thera formulas. Are they supposed to be fed on a regular basis or only when the fish is sick?

I went ahead & ordered the Small Fish Thera A, but thanks a TON for your reply!

I feed all my other fish the appropriate size Thera A pellets as thee staple diets as there isn't any actual medication in the formulas, but just mega doses of garlic and all are well & happy.

The Growth Formula is the same size as the Small Fish so I know everybody will be able to eat it.

Again - thank you! :)

Thera A will probably be good in combination with the Growth. It isn't high in protein but is probably still good. I believe there is only 43% protein. I feed it to all of my african cichlids since they require a low protein diet.

Yes, I was planning on doing just that. I also feed Golden Pearls (60% protein) twice a week & freeze dried baby brine shrimp once a week.
