New life spectrum marine pellets

Opinions on this brand? Right now I'm feeding frozen mysis shrimp and freeze dried cyclopeeze and I'm looking to add a good flake/pellet

IME New Life Spectrum is by far the best brand out there right now. It is so complete and well balanced that fish tend to do better when fed it exclusively, better than when it is part of a variety.

The Thera+A formula would be better since it has enough garlic to kill some parasites, something that can be very beneficial in a marine tank.

Not a saltwater guy (yet) but NLS is all I feed my crew. And yes I have ordered the Thera A formula.

Well I plan on feeding twice a day, once with a small amount of frozen/cyclopeeze and once with pellets.
I'll look and see if they have the formula next time I'm at the store.

I wouldn't feed anything else if everything will accept the NLS. Unfortunately with many marine fish they simply won't take to prepared foods and you have to feed them. If you have fish that won't take to it then keep feeding frozen. The goal should be to get them on NLS exclusively, they will do better.

i feed my fish NLS marine formula, they seem to really like it and are extremely healthy. as for the garlic you can always buy a garlic juice thing and soak the pellets in it. the garlic isn't really to kill parasites its more to entice the fish to eat it and also to help keep their immunties up. i've yet to read that it actually kills parasites
