I just rescued a betta from a local walmart, and he will only eat flakes. My other betta loves his pelts, as well as bloodworm. Should i be worried about him, and i would apreciate any suggestions on getting him to eat his pelts
Thanx

Are they flakes made for bettas? If so, don't worry! :) Bettas do have specific dietary needs, but if the flakes are made for them, they'll do just as good of a job as pellets. I have 3 bettas who eat flakes and they're just as healthy as those who eat pellets. :thumbs:

Tetra Betamin is food specifically made for betta's and it comes in flake form, with a few freeze dried brine shrimp thrown in.

My main disklike for flake food is the mess left behind after the fish eats. Unlike pellets that are eaten whole, little bits of flake food wind up on the bottom of my tank.
