Here is the difference between Xtreme Monster Pellets and Ken's 9.5 mm pellets. I have used Ken's pellets for my bushynose.
Xtreme 9mm Monster (new) is a 9mm pellet that fish might just jump out of the pond to get. For those really big fish, 9mm Monster Pellets will keep them from looking hungrily at small animals and children. Maybe not for the family aquarium, but perfect for Koi, Dovi, Cintrinellum, Nandopsishaitienisi and other "Monster" varieties. Note to breeders. We use these pellets to feed new born fry...it sinks to the bottom and they can nibble at it...and it doesn't foul the tank! Main Ingredients: Krill Meal, Fish Meal, Wheat Middlings, Wheat, Shrimp Meal, Dehulled Soybean Meal, Wheat Flour, Distillers Dried Grains with Soluables, Brewers Dried Yeast, Spirulina, Monosodium Phosphate, Paprika, Limestone, Xanthophyll, Fish Oil, Lecithin, Salt, Vitamin A Acetate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, di-Alph Tocopheryl Acetate(Vitamin E Supplement), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Riboflavin, Niacin, Caldium Pantothenate, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex(source of Vitamin K activity), Folic Acid, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Biotin, Manganese Proteinate, Zinc Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Calcium Iodate, Iron Proteinate, Cobalt Proteinate, Calcium Carbonate, Sodium Selenite, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Canthaxanthin, Astaxanthin, Beta Carotene Guaranteed Analysis: Protein 38% min, Fat 5% min, Fiber 4.5% max, Moisture 10% max.

Note that wheat is the first ingredient instead of Krill. No wonder the price is less than half. Great for Bushynose but my Carnivores did not like it. I may try some Xtreme.
