Which New Life Spectrum food for a semi aggressive/community tank?
I am planning on Odessa barbs, Denison Barbs, Corys maybe 3 or 4 Botia Angelicus (Kubotai) and a few other fish that will be determined as I find compatability matches, any suggestions for more tank mates and NLS food choice? My tank is a 125g

NLS 'Thera+A', my barbs love it. I am currently feeding the 1mm size though I am considering stepping up a size since my Denisons are pushing 4"
Your planned stocking sounds much like my soon to be 'Nearly all barb' 100, . 12 Denison, 14 Odessa, Some botia and ?? [After I move my big Oscar]
I am narrowing my options down to either Arulius Barbs [Dawkinsia tambraparniei], Filament Barbs [Dawkinsia filamentosa - If I can find them], Checkered Barb [Puntius oligolepis] or just going with a huge school of tigers . .
Just a few options for you to consider, Nightmare of a decision eh?
Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

With NLS there are so many formula choices
You could go with 'Thera+A as already mentioned
Community Fish Formula, All purpose formula, even the floating flakes.
Any of these choices would do fine for your fish.Sailor

I just got the community formula and the large thera a to try out. My bottom fish and even the surving ghost shrimp love the thera a (I got the large so it wouldnt get stuck in my substrate, and it was cheaper so for a try out it won my choice). The community is liked by my angels in one tank but not the other, my serpae tetras, and my clown loaches. My few platies and guppies dont want to eat it and my zebra danios dont love it so much either.
I have only had it a couple weeks so I dont know about long term effects yet. One suggestion is that if you have a week stomach dont feed the thera a first thing in the morning before you eat, it has a strong smell.
