I've just been doing some reading and just learned about ethoxyquin, a pet food preservative that may be harmful to fish. I see it is included in my Omega One and used to be in Saki Hikari (an old review was where I first read about it). Does anyone know - is it a big enough deal that I need to stop using the Omega One? I know it is highly recommended, and I haven't noticed any problems, just wondering. Ethoxyquin is not listed on my containers of NLS or Hikari Lionhead. Thanks. Background Info: This is an old review, where the reviewer was unhappy about the use of MSG in Saki Hikari, and some people commented to his review that it also included ethoxyquin. A later reviewer states that MSG is not on the current label. I don't have a package yet to look for myself. http://www.amazon.com/Hikari-Usa-AHK42553-Goldfish-Ounce/product-reviews/B001P220TQ/ref=cm_cr_pr_top_helpful?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=byRankDescending Anecdotal report that ethoxyquin is no longer on the Saki Hikari label: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=A0LEVkCVq01Us1wAOTFjmolQ;_ylu=X3oDMTBybnV2cXQwBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMgRjb2xvA2JmMQR2dGlkAw--?qid=20140926203236AAzXSLg I know this is just wikipedia, but it's what I found quickly about ethoxyquin: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethoxyquin Maybe this is better, if the link works: http://www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/REDs/factsheets/0003fact.pdf
