Nls red?

Anyone have input on this? Was reading up on it. How does it change the color of a fish? Is it natural?

Yes it's all natural with a higher dosage of Beta Carotene is a carotenoid, one of a group of plant pigments known to have antioxidant and other effects. Having normal levels of vitamin A is key for good vision, strong immunity, and general health. It's what makes carrots orange.

It's also formulated like Thera with the extra garlic but designed to bring out the reds.

I could see it filling a niche market for flowerhorns or something but for the majority of NLS users I can't see risking changing your non-red fishes colors. To much beta carotene can cause our skin color to change too!
