That's not really true. I've kept many fish who just get brighter with time.
But I agree on feeding what you can as long as it's the best you can find.
I wouldn't give up on the search. Check online, I'm sure you'll find someone who ships to Spain!
Also, search for aquarists in your area and see what they feed. You might find someone who can provide you with better food.

For the above two, I've heard results are basically identical, feeding-wise.

Do these ship internationally? I didn't see any restrictions. I feed my betta hikari pellets and he does well. They don't dirty the tank and they float. I'm planning on getting some freeze dried daphnia soon-apparently they like that. It's also good to mix up the betta's diet. Is there anywhere near that sells live daphnia/brine shrimp/any other LIVE betta food?

Brine shrimp are too small for adult bettas.
Check AquaBid for live foods.
Grindal worms are pretty easy to keep and an established culture will give you large enough worms to feed adult bettas,

I haven't seen restrictions but I'm checking ToS on amazon and there is a lot of fine print there... it's a headache. I'm allergic to live blood worms, no idea if that applies to any other worms, and I do not have the means to hatch brine shrimp eggs-- I am checking aquabid though :D I think i'm going to get pellets that a breeder uses for his bettas :) I want to get him what you mainly feed betta's with, just richer pellets. Then I'll just combine dried worms etc.

thanks for the suggestions everyone

I have been using Hikari Betta Bio-Gold, and my little bro LOVES it! He will literally jump out of the water to take it off my finger.
