Be wary of fish food products that fail to live up to their name.

Dr. Bassleer Biofish Food Garlic Formula

We recently got a tip from a reader who said he analyzed over 435 fish foods (435!) and found many deceptively named after a “minor ingredient” in the product. One of the products was Dr. Bassleer Biofish Food  Garlic Formula, which lists “garlic (2%)” as the last of six ingredients. The first ingredient? “Fish and fish derivatives.” (So much for fish being friends, not food.)

Fish and fish derivatives, cereals, derivatives of vegetable origin, yeast, minerals, garlic (2 %).

Under federal law, ingredients in pet food must be listed in descending order of predominance by weight. So the next time you’re shopping for fish food, you might want to check the ingredients before you buy.

Here are some other fish food products that fail to live up to their name:

Wardley Algae Discs

Zeigler Beef Heart Flakes

Hikari Tropical Algae Wafers

Dr. Bassleer Biofish Food Acai Formula
