In Depth Review

This review of Seachem’s NutriDiet Betta Food is from my personal use of the product and is written from a hobbyist perspective.

When I think of Seachem, one of the first thoughts that comes to my head is not betta food. The brand has made a name for itself in other areas like its popular Seachem Prime and Purigen. While they aren’t known for betta food, I decided to give their food a try anyways. This review will cover the pros and cons I found with the food.

Do Fish Like the Food?

Yes, my red veiltail betta (Balky) likes the food. He is pretty aggressive when eating it as well. A great sign for a food to have.

Package Sizing and Pricing

Seachem’s NutriDiet betta food is a bit pricey as far as betta foods go. However, the price is not bad when considering how long it should last you. They only sell the food in 1oz bottles which will cost you about $7. That is a little higher than a decent amount of foods on the market.

Pellet Overview

I believe these pellets to be the perfect size for most betta fish. No exact measurement is given, but I would say they are about 1mm wide and they are also fairly uniform throughout the bottle. You would think this is commonplace amongst betta foods in the market, but I have found this not to be the case. A win in my book.

I will mention that the pellets are also very consistent with floating on the top of the water. Again, this is something I believe should be standard with betta foods.

Ingredient Quality

With all of the things that I appreciate about this food, I am not a big fan of the ingredients. At least for the price that is paid. Alfalfa Meal is the primary ingredient found in the food, followed by squid meal, and then fish meal.

When I buy fish foods, I like my food’s primary ingredients and protein sources to be quality. I would not classify Alfalfa meal as quality.

But what about the probiotics in the food? Perhaps this is a decent reason for the higher price of the food. In my personal opinion, however, I do not think that probiotics in fish food are that big of a deal. There was a time when it seemed like all of the fish foods were trying to add it to their food, but I have noticed a drop in the hype.

Packaging

Yes, I have dedicated an entire section to the packaging of this food. I like what Seachem did with the bottle. It allows for only a few pellets to come out at a time with you not having to touch the food. It is also super easy to seal for storage. Anyway, just wanted to make sure to give some credit to Seachem for the out-of-the-ordinary packaging.

Market Availability

Seachem products are fairly widespread in their availability. However, I have found that their betta food is not widely carried. You may be able to find the food in some local pet shops. They also seem limited in availability online. When googling the food, I was only really able to find it available on Amazon.

My Final Thoughts

This is a tough food to summarize. Simply put I like the food and would recommend it. However, I think it is a little overpriced and I don’t buy into the probiotic hype. If you would like to buy a food that contains probiotics and don’t mind alfalfa meal as the main ingredient then give the food a try. Oh, and see if you enjoy the bottle packing as much as I do.
