I've only found NLS locally in one store, which happens to be my LFS. The guy breeds discus and african cichlids. Nowhere else sells it, including petsmart. I've always ordered it in the past from aquacave.

I get my Thera-A in bulk, but surprisingly the local petco carries the full (?) line.

Petco has started carrying it, but I am not sure if they are carrying all of them.

You can get good deals online though, $50-65 for a bucket shipped is good. Obviously you can go with one of the smaller containers too, for much cheaper. I love eBay.

Take out the % of water in the frozen and then look at the numbers.

I don't do either (freeze-dried or frozen). If I did it would be certain frozen foods, but not bloodworms. For corals and small fish Cyclopeeze is an amazing frozen food. Rod's Food for a very diverse reef tank is perfect. Also for forals is stuff like oyster eggs and rotifers. For almost all freshwater fish though you shouldn't have to go beyond NLS.
