Mix of fresh, coldwater seafood blended specifically to enhance the levels of Omega 6 fatty acids. Omega 6 fatty acids are extremely valuable to freshwater species for strong immune systems and cell wall development. Low ash and higher quality proteins mean less pollution in the tank. Made only with fresh seafood.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good balance of nutrients, easy to feed
Cons: Not as good as pellets

 
One of the best tropical fish flakes out there, although it can't quite measure up to a good high quality pellet. Still, it is easy to feed to fish with many different size mouths, and when finely crushed is a good staple for livebearer fry.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fish like it, inexpensive
Cons: large flakes

 
So far no complaints. The fish happily eat it and they are showing good colors. I crush it up before I add it to the tank because some of the flakes are pretty big.

------------------------------
20 gallon tank - harlequin rasboras, rummynose tetras, panda corys, one lone pygmy cory that didn't die when the others did.

10 gallon tank - planned planted with tetras and red cherry shrimp?

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Well recieved, good staple food.
Cons: Cheaper options are available for flake.

 
No complaints from any of my fish either. This flake is happily accepted.
There are cheaper options out there for flake, and in some cases other foods make better staple food than flake.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good quality flake
Cons: a bit oily

 
Fish liked it, but it's a bit oily, leading to more of a biofilm than other foods. I prefer pellets instead but not a bad flake choice.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fish love it, readily available, whole fish first ingredient
Cons: None

 
Omega one is the highest quality fish food available for purchase at a retail store in my area. The first ingredient is always whole fish of some sort or kelp if it is a kelp-based flake/pellet/wafer. The fish definitely enjoy it and their colors are bright.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fish love it, everyone eats it
Cons: Most expensive flake

 
An excellent option for community tanks, everything from acaras to cories will eat this and show great colors for it. Not for the fishkeeper on a budget though, if you're willing to spend the extra 2$ the quality is AMAZING :)

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Good quality, top notch ingredients
Cons: a little "hard", some bits are impossible

 
Omega one appeared to me an excellent food, considering its ingredients and the reputation that comes along with anything by this company. I did however have some issues with this food.

One, not all my fish will eat it. The only tank that readily accepts it is my neon tank, they, and the Betta with them love this stuff. My guppies, Harlequins, other Betta, red eyes and phantoms completely ignore it. Even my pond goldfish really don't care for it. It makes no sense to me. (The Goldfish will, however, eat Omega one Goldfish flakes, go figure)

The second odd thing, there are hard "bits", stick like pieces that can't be broken up. Feels like tiny little twigs! They are hard as a rock, and I have to pick them out, making feeding a bit of a nuisance.

------------------------------
2 10 gallon tanks, 1 20 gallon tank, 1 Fluval Edge, 1 29 gallon tank, and one backyard pond.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Fish never turn it down.
Cons: A few hard chunks.

 
You open the can for the first time and you can just smell the goodness! All my fish take it with exception to the bottom dwellers, but that is to be expected. Flakes stay on top for a good long time unless hit by the filter outtake. A few bits can be chunky and hard. Like they are stuck together. But there isn't a lot of this and shouldn't deter you for getting it.

You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.
