Of those choices, I would go with Aqueon. It seems to have the most fish products in it. Definitely not Wardley.

Aqeuon is liked by the boys, larger container and twice as expensive... that's what we'll go with until we can get the NLS online. It's about $30 a bottle locally for me O_o

Wardley was what I was feeding Venom and Carnage :(

My boys LOVE Aqeuon, and if you have a betta with a small mouth, the pellets are smaller than most.

I found out yesterday that Ben and Twitch are from a local breeder, and Hughie is a shipment Betta. So Ben is still quite young, and prefers his food crushed. Twitch is recovering so his are crushed too. The Aqeuon is MUCH smaller. I am so happy a member suggested it to me and where to find it here.

I highly doubt your betta died from that food, it's one of the best food brands. Maybe he was sick to begin with, or you got a bad batch?
