NLS for sure. NLs is abetter choice because its nutritionally complete, so thats all you have to feed.

NLS, see my the article on it in my blog for details.

Omega One uses artificial colors in at least some of their foods. They also use fat at levels that can contribute to things like fatty liver disease. Omega One also uses two preservatives. They are Tocopherol and ethoxyquin. NLS has ethoxyquin but ONLY as required by law in the meals, not added to the food. So they simply admit it is in the food, they do not add it. When I emailed Omega One about the preservatives they did not reply, which makes me think the answer is not as good.

I'm an Omega One fan!:19:

NLS seems to have palatability issues...

Yeah, I'm familiar with ethoxyquin and its carcinogenic effects. Won't feed any dog food containing it to my dogs. Yeah, that no reply speaks very loud.

Palatability is usually far from an issue, outside of certain individuals being relunctant to change.

I used Hikari extensively before NLS, NLS is much better.

Nothing but NLS here. The only fish I have that won't eat it is my Royal Gramma.

Many online retailers sell it. Some LFSs are now too.

For people who have not seen a difference or think other foods are better, how long did you feed NLS exclusively?
