I know about the Content, what I meant was as far as feeding it to fish. Are they aimed at different fish.

Sorry I shoulda said that in the first place.

Yes, to know which fish to feed which too...you should research the fish

The site tells you which fish they are usually aimed at.

1 has higher protien levels and 1 is for fish with lower proetien needs. You gotta research and see wich one suits your individual fish as reefrunner said.

Formula 1 is more for omnivores/carnivores. Formula 2 is more for herbivores.
I use both.
