Question Female betta and flakes?

I have a female betta in a 55 gallon with lots of tetra and a few gourami. At feeding time she eats the flakes.. though I've heard its not good for betta to eat flakes.. and that they need actual betta food. I don't want to feed her any betta food though because she will end up over eating due to the fact that she eats the flakes also. Is it bad that she eats only flakes?

Can you maybe isolate her in a breeder box during feeding time? Then the others could eat their flakes & you can feed her Betta Pellets. When everyone's had their fill you release her. They have those mesh ones or the plastic ones that hang on the edge of your tank so you don't have to remove her just contain her & you can make sure everyone is getting the proper nutrition.
