There is also New Life Spectrum, for the better nutrient value, but they sink..so it's up to you, or the Omega One, they microsecond sink,, if your fish jumps for food, and they jump on the pellet, it will go down fast, and you will be wasting food, and it will be impossible to find, and start deteiorating..and fouling up in the water..

You know, I've never had that sinking problem with Omega One pellets....I did with Aqueon though. My fish were never particularly fond of the Aqueon pellets however.

Hakari, New Life Spectrum(I think besides the betta formula there a separate micro pellet formula you can try?), Omega One.....try one or two or all and see what works best for you. ;)

Maybe try get a pellet that floats. Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets float... REALLY well! Trust me I know! I came into my room once with I don't know how many pellets were floating in my tank! My little cousin had come into my room while I wasn't there and ever so kindly fed my fish... Too much.

Good news and Bad news, Bad news he didnt eat the Hikari pellets either, but I got flakes as a back up and he eats that so at least he's eating and I think he likes them too
