I dont know if you just skim posts or what, but i did say that they were crushed and soaked before offering him the regular pellets.
I dont want to sound rude, and maybe i am too doped up on pain meds to be talking to people, but it seems like you arent even listen to me.
some pellets are really big, like tetra mini floating pellets that come in the yellow container are huge. only like 2 of my bettas can actually eat them, i have nls betta formula and have used aqueon betta bellets and they are the same size and even omega betta buffet pellets are roughly the same size as, so if you have the tetra that is maybe why they are bigger than most pellets. for fred he likes the smaller ones better than the bigger ones. I have always found it interesting how different the types of food are depending on brand, though I guess not really surprised
The way I figure it, we aren't zoologists where we record the exact weight of the food we feed our fish. A little variation from one day to the next is probably more natural anyways. My fish seem to be cool with it.
Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?
I had Sweepstakes when I got my boys, switched to Nutrafin Betta Shakers and I though they were huge. I got Aqeon Betta pellets and they are much more tiny and my younger boys can eat them. But wow, thems some tiny pellets!! Is have to give Nixon a table spoon full LOL
