Just saw this list of the first 3 ingredients in a lot of pelleted food.

The thing I would change is that Soybean meal should not be red.

instead of telling ppl to look at the long list of ingredients on pellet brands, and avoid so and so...

We should just have a list of which fish food are tolerated and which are not. (for example: Avoid Hikari gold b/c it has traces of corn and go for bio-gold instead)

i think tht would be alot easier

Since there are literally dozens of brands of pellets around the world we'll list a number of good ones but also include what to look for and look out for in other brands.

So Rock have you looked into the Xtreme aquatics foods? What you think of them? I see you can get a 5 lb container for like $45

I like the ingredient list, and the fact they do not use dyes and hormones.

I'm waiting until I finish up my bio-gold. Reading their website, they like to keep the food as fresh as possible, which means they just don't mass produce so that it can sit on shelves for years at a time. The also recommend only getting enough to feed your fish for 6 months because the ingredients will degrade over time.
