    I can't believe I found Omega One at PetsMart, and at a good price too! I'm going to swich to that as soon as my Wardley junk is gone (and I have some money ;)) Just thought I'd mention it for those who can't find it--try PetsMart, or maybe they sell it on their website, I dunno.

    The Omega brand is exceptional, just compare the ingredients. :)

    Excellent! I knew they sold it here, but wasn't sure if it was available at all PetSmarts. Great stuff!

    For some reason most of my fish don't like Omega One flakes and prefer the TetraMin ones.

    I also feed mine with TetraMin flakes and other TetraMin foods (plus frozen brine shripm and frozen bloodworms)and they seem to like it much. Never heard of Omega fish food, but if they have it at my LFS I'll try and see if my fish will like it. How is omega better than other brands?

    P.S. Also give my fish Wardley flakes and they like it.

    Most fish foods list fish meal as the first ingredient. Fish meal is ground up fish leftovers, bones, fins etc.
    Omega one uses the whole fish.
    I have used the wardleys and tetra brands of food and my fish lived and did ok. When I started using the Omega One brand after awhile I noticed that their color was better and the seemed to have more energy. it did take a little bit to get tehm used to eating it.
    but all this is a personal choice of course.

    I give Wardley and Tetra also because I cant get my hands on Omeg One. Seachem the distributer of it in Australia doesn't distribute it to any retailer in South Australia (my state) so I have to order it in from a Specialist Aquarium Centre which naturally it means that its gonna be expensive

    i use the wardley brand also because no one around here has omega fish like it so until i can find it locally i guess i'll use it.

    I wanted to see if they had Wardley Spectra Max which is supposed to be their top product but they dont sell them here so I use Wardley Total Colour Gourmet Blend alond with Tetra Veggie Flakes.

    I asked at my LFS for Omega fish food - they don't have it and they never had it before. Maybe I'll order it online with my other aquarium purchases.

    You can also watch on ebay. Use Omega One as your keyword and watch for sellers that don't charge a lot on shipping! I just won a large can of the veggie rounds for $4.95 including shipping! ;)

    I found Omega's website. For those wondering why this food is considered superior, here you may find some explanations for that claim. Maybe I'll order some of this food online since they don't have that in my petstore (anyway, they almost never have the things I need!). Here's the website:

    Just a quick note about Bettas and Omega One Small Pellets. My Bettas really WANT to eat them but they are too big for their mouths so I crush them a little bit so they can get at them. They don't float as well, but they at leash have a chance to eat them. It is going to mean more water changes and vacuuming but they love the food so much I don't mind. The veggie wafers also are much more popular and are gone faster than the algae wafers that I was feeding the ottos. The food is really worth it. I am keeping the other food just to give them a change once in a while but I won't be surprised if they won't eat it.
