46% fishmeal protein is higher than most commercial flake, but there really is
little difference one flake to the next unless you can buy them freshly made.
from the ingredient list it appears to be a comprehensive product.

a little off-topic, but i'm curious to know what people are feeding their small fish as daily staple? for floating food, i recently switched over from basic flakes (e.g., tetramin) to hikari micro pellets and noticed my tetras have been spawning a LOT more. maybe it's just coincidence?
not really, spirulina is primarily a vegetarian or omnivore food,
and garlic is simply a appetite stimulant like MSG, not nutrition.
Like I wrote earlier, any high protein flake is fine, but the fresh
stuff will deliver more of the original nutrition, and fresher food
is more appreciated taste-wise by your fish, than shelved flake.
Decapsulated are much better nutrition for your fish than frozen, but your fish are not being fed as naturally as they are by chasing down live shrimp. so if convenience and nutrition are a priority, decapsulated is an awesome product for fry and nano fish. For regular size fish over 3cm you should choose a flake, crumble or pellet instead, many of which already contain brine shrimp meal.
