@misty1477, I suggest next time you go shopping for pet supplies buy your betta some Hikari brand pellets. They are a little dearer sometimes but they are small and my betta gobbles them up in no time! Try it!

Anyone interested in an opened container of OmegaOne Super Color Pellets???

I give up on the pellet-thing...I tried everything....Sparkle just does not like pellets.....Silly Fussy Betta Goes crazy for flakes !!!

He seems to be a "flake-betta". I will use up the TetraMin flakes and when $$$ is available, I will look into OmegaOne Flakes. I really want to feed him flakes with the most "meat" in them.

you used garlic pieces? You soak it in water then soak the pellet in the garlic water.

YIPPIE !!!! SPARKLE ATE 3 PELLETS this morning ..... YAY !!!!

I gave the pellets a quick smash pieces were not too small.

I can tell by how long he is, that he has grown alot since I first got him. Hmmmmmm.....maybe he has a bigger mouth now

I really wanted to get him off of the flakes ... I will see if he continues to chomp down the pellets now....I know the OmegaOne's I have are alot better for him than the flakes he was eating.

I can actually hear Fishie chewing his pellets. lol I laughed the first time I fed him because he will take it in his mouth and spit it out two or three times, but then he will grab it again and seriously crunch it. You can hear it.

Oh yea, that is waht it is, just trying to get used to different kind of texture of food, once they get used to something it is hard to make them change..but I am glad you didn't give up, it's worth the struggle that it takes to make em get used to the better food..
