What is "good" Fish Food

I often hear people talking about spending extra money to get the "good" fish food, because it's better for the fish.

What are the best brands or type of fish food?

Anything to avoid?

I feed New Life Spectrum exclusively to every fish in the house, there is not a single brand of anything else. For as many blue top jars everywhere you'd think I have stock.

I feed both NLS and Omega One brands. Both are superior in the quality of ingredients.

it's sold in a lot of major pet stores, I know petland has it, I *heard* petco has it now, but we don't have one local to here. I order it online by the bucket usually. The price in the pet store is ridiculous.

It's a great pellet, I still feed flakes and sticks though, depending. NLS has an awesome ingredient list, but NLS isn't the only one that uses high quality ingredients.

Right Now I feed tetramin crisps, frozen brine, bloodworms and veggie alternating. Just set up a brine shrimp hatchery and grow out tank also.
