Betta eating Algae wafers?

Is it okay if a Betta eat thos Algae wafers? I usually feed it to my shrimp as a treat (In small portions) and sometimes my betta takes a nip at it lol. Was wondering if that is okay for the Betta.

If he just gets a little mouthful every once in a while, it won't do him any harm.....but keep an eye on him and make sure hes not eating too much of it and getting bloated as the algae wafers are a food that has a lot of plant material in it which can be a little hard for carnivorous bettas to digest.

A tiny mouthful is fine. If he eats more than that he may over eat and should be fasted until his belly goes down.

My betta took huge chunks of the waffers today when i was feeding my snails and shrimps. He got too bloated so he will definitely be fasted tonight. It is almost impossible to feed anything else with a betta in the tank lol.

I've come to the conclusion that my betta will attempt to eat everything EXCEPT blanched lettuce ;)
