NLS vs Northfin: Which would you choose?

Mamajin

Something in another thread sparked my curiosity so I decided to look into NorthFin fish foods. Specifically the community blend. I got NorthFins info from their site, and the NLS info I got from the back of the jar that I have. Here's the list of ingredients for both.

Which would you choose, and why?

Interesting, as the Northfin is almost similar to the NLS food

which reminds me, there was someone on this site who was promoting this fish food I think in the Toronto area

I think his post were deleted if memory serves me right...he was so anxious to sell that food that he was willing to meet me in the Toronto area for me to try a sample of the food

Need to do some research here

To answer my own question ( ), I would think that the NLS would be far superior with more vitamins and the antI parasitic ingredient along with that fairly large list of fruits and veggies. None of which are found in the NorthFin.

Are there any other community foods that are comparable to NLS, but less expensive? It would be nice to find something really close to NLS for those who don't want to pay the extra.
