Makes sense. Thanks for the info. You basically confirmed what I was already thinking.
On a completely unrelated note, I was wondering what anyone's opinion was on feeding flakes instead of pellets? I have some flakes that I've been feeding the little guy (along with freeze dried bloodworms) for the last few days I've had him. He also got a bit of a pea today as he may be starting to be constipated. (No sign of poop yet.
) I will sit down tonight and make myself create an actual week-long feeding plan for him, I just haven't had time yet.
Anywho, he seems to like the flakes as long as they're broken down to a smaller size. I believe the brand is NutraFin Betta Food. And he's absolutely gaga for the blood worms, which he does not get as often. Any opinions? (Or if you have a feeding "schedule" you'd like to share, I would also appreciate it!)
