Whoops! Misread your post. In that case, same thing applies (don't worry too much, get pellets soon). However, if you're using the sinking wafers that I've seen, you'll want to break them up into small pieces so your betta doesn't choke. I just had the...ah...privledge of watching my betta down one of those wafers in several gulps and it was pretty scary(not his food, not my intention to feed him it, he's just an extreme piggy). You might want to soak them first as well so he doesn't get constipated.
