Bug Bites Review


Link: Bug Bites

ive been meaning to try out these pellets after hearing a lot of good things about them and I finally bought some.

I got the cichlid formula for small/medium sized fish and they are not that small I feel like they should be for medium fish instead of small as one pellet barely fits in my bettas mouth although its likely because its meant for cichlids. pellet sizes are around 1.4mm-1.6mm and aren't very round which can make it difficult for some fish to swallow

I'm not that impressed with the ingredients, it uses only one type of bug larvae and one type of fish the rest is vegetables and everything else.

Black Soldier Fly Larvae, Salmon, Fish Protein Concentrate, Green Peas, Potato, Wheat, Dicalcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, DL-Methionine, Lecithin, Choline Chloride, L-Lysine, Vitamin E Supplement, Biotin, Niacin, Calcium L-Ascorbyl-2-Monophosphate, Marigold Extract, Zinc Oxide, Manganous Oxide, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Beta-Carotene, Rosemary Extract, Riboflavin, Copper Sulfate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Inositol, Folic Acid, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite, Vitamin D3 Supplement

I do like the guaranteed analysis though, its not as good or high as some of the other foods I feed.

Crude Protein (min) 40.0%
Crude Fat (min) 12.5%
Crude Fibre (max) 5.0%
Moisture (max) 10.0%
Ash (max) 9.0%
Calcium (min) 1.50%
Phosphorus (min) 0.80%
Vitamin A (min) 2,500 IU/kg
Vitamin D3 (min) 2,400 IU/kg
Vitamin E (min) 75 IU/kg

my betta responded quickly to the pellets though. it only took him a few seconds to find it and recognize it as food, normally he is hesitant with new foods. so it is fish approved and is around 4.99 so it isn't too expensive. I give it 8/10, it wouldnt be my first choice of food and I'm not sure if I would buy again but it isn't a bad pellet overall


I primarily use Omega One foods of assorted varieties.
I highly recommend their products.

yes omega one is also a good food brand and I do like how many types of foods they have but never tried anything other then their veggie rounds and bloodworms. I usually use National Geographic and Northfin foods but like to try new brands if they are on sale lol


My fish wouldn't eat the Omega One. I think mine are the only ones that refused it. They eat New Life Spectrum and I love their overall health on it. I also use the Bug Bites both for my tropicals and my Goldie’s. My bettas have no problem with the tropical size. I love the analysis on it too.

it is hard to find foods that have more then protein, fat, fibre, moisture and/or ash on the label or a good amount of each


I use Bug Bites and feed my fish twice daily 10am and at 4pm and they go mad for it plus they're filling out well.
