Grow is basically a growth formula with higher levels of protein, I use this for fry up to 1.5" then transition them to 1mm Thera. I wouldn't feed this as a daily diet for anything other than grow-outs, but if you do a little goes a long way. Thera is essentially the same formula as regular NLS but with a huge dosage of garlic. Garlic has been scientifically shown to kill some internal and external parasites, but the form is very important which is why ingestion is the best method. The liquid forms of garlic from the LFS
can work as appetite stimulus but won't help with parasites. If your not using Thera then the next best method for that is the juice from freshly pressed garlic. Soak your choice of food in that juice and you have a great garlic enhanced food, or save the garlic and just use NLS!
