I was finally able to get some Omega One Betta Buffet for Rakki, and we fed him his first meal of the new pellets this morning. He seems so much more energetic today!
He'd only been getting two of his old Aquarian brand pellets a day because they expand a lot and I didn't want him to bloat or end up with swim bladder issues. We plan to feed two Omega One pellets in the morning and two at night. Does that sound about right for an adult betta? I also got him some freeze-dried bloodworms for a weekly treat. He'll be getting his first one on Monday in place of his evening pellets.
I feed a mixture of Omega One and NLS along with supplemented frozen bloodworm treats and I am looking into feeding live BBS as occasional treats as well. If I am feeding NLS, my fish get 10-12 apiece. I have the small fish NLS formula, so the pellets are extremely small. I find that a couple of my fish that have issues with Omega One (presumably because they are larger) perked right up with NLS. I feel Omega One has slightly better nutrition, though, so I don't intend to give it up. When feeding Omega One, my fish get 5-6 pellets each. I really never see bloat because there isn't the same amount of icky fillers cheaper brands of food use.
Back after a hiatus.

This makes me excited -- bettas I've fed in the past usually got generic betta flakes. But this time around I bought the Omega One pellets, which Romeo seems to love. I'm excited to see if his color deepens. He's already so colorful and full-finned for a PetSmart alum; any improvements would just be icing on the cake!
