I think he means you should be writing for the Federal Food and Drug administration. And you left out how cool it is to feed live brine shrimp and watch them get gobbled up.

Any particular brands?
This was a wonderful and informative post. I am a complete Newbie, but I'm trying read up and do things right. I've got a 30 gal FW tank with 7 cardinal tetras, 6 cory cats, 2 mollies, 2 platys, 3 guppies, one otto and one pleco. I've been giving them a mixture of flakes, veggie wafers, and the occasional supplement of dried baby krill or frozen bloodworms.
I was wondering if (aside from just relying on the most expensive brand I find, in hopes that the "you get what you pay for" addage always holds true ) there are any specific brands of food that more knowledgeable aquarium keepers gravitate toward?

I only use and recommend New Life Spectrum, specifically the Thera+A formula because it has enough extra garlic to actually kill some parasites. It comes in many sizes, the 1mm should work well for your fish. The only problem is that it is sinking, so if you have gravel it may just disappear. There are two ways to fix this: 1-gently drop it on the surface because it will stick to the surface a little, allowing surface feeders to feed and 1-switch to sand. I prefer sand anyways because it is so much cleaner, much more natural, and looks better.Owner: Aquarium Maintenance and Pet Care Company

The mysterious NLS
Ahh, that's the "NLS" everyone has been talking about! I had tried looking up "NLS" and, of course, couldn't find anything. Thanks so much. I'll look into that brand!

Hikari & Kens are also well worth putting into your feeding regimen IMO.My GF calls me insincere... I pretend to care.
