Question How To Keep Tetras From Eating Betta Food/ Bettas Eating Tetra Food?

How do I keep bettas from eating Tetra Food? I might be getting a larger tank like this: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-P2xqZMI8E) tonight. I want to add a few tetras, but I want to know: (See Title).

Thanks!

Can bettas eat Tetra food and can tetras eat betta food? Kind of like a salad? I just think a 3 way breeder is too much of a hassle for Lucky.

I feed all my fish the same food and that's tropical flakes, why? well, because I have tetras, cories and a pleco in my female betta tank and it would be very difficult to feed them all their individual foods, plus they love it lol.

So I can't mix all of the food together?

Sorry if I'm leading you off.

I want to put tetras with Lucky, my male betta. I don't have the tetras Yet. I just need to know if I can mix the Tetra food and the betta food together to make a Mix. That way there are no complications.

It's OK, I'm just a bit twp thats all lol

What do you feed your male at the moment, pellets, flakes?

See, if you feed him pellets and the tetras flakes then he is likely to finish his and go for the tetras and vice versa.

I feed my females and tetras tropical flakes and used to throw in some algae wafers for the cories and pleco but the tetras and females used to finish theirs and go straight for the wafers so I stopped feeding the cories and now everyone is just on flakes lol.

Man I'm stupid !!

I just re-read and yes you can mix the food but if you are going to do that then you may as well just either stick to one type of food or get tropical flakes, thats what I would do anyway :)
