try freeze dried instead. They're half the size, and my ADF loved it when I had her.
Sadly at the time, I didn't realize tank size requirements, so because of the small tank size, my male VT betta Blue Bandit became more aggresive and killed her. Now that he's in a 15 gal tank...he ingore the guppies also living in it, and is much nicer to Red Patiet Mermaid [female crown tail]
What is your tank size? Perhaps if its small, try a larger one and see what happens. Unfortunalty there not allot of options for the ADF food types that they like, as ,uch as Bettas, so I hope everything works out better for you.
