New Life Spectrum makes Small Fish Formula pellets and Hikari makes Micro Pellets. My two babies began eating frozen bloodworms/brine shrimp before they started eating the pellets. Slowly I weaned them onto pellets because they have higher nutritional value. Bloodworms have very good protein content though, which is good for growing babies.

Try the Hikari micro pellets. They come in a pouch, not a jar or can. I get them for my tetras, but the sorority girls have absolutely no qualms about stealing some. Which is fine, cause the bigger tetras have no qualms about returning the favor with the betta pellets.

I can only find freeze dried bloodworms. Will those be okay? I'm buying them anyway as a treat, but will they be good to feed her until she gets bigger?

I feed Paris Hikari tropical micro pellets as he has an itty-bitty mouth. They are highly nutritious and very appealing to young bettas and I'd defenetley advise them.

I'll definitely look for them next time I'm near my LFS! Petsmart doesn't have them. :(

If you can't get frozen you could try those but try to wean them onto pellets asap.

I'm still giving her about 5 crushed up pellets pellets a day, but I give her two of the freeze dried bloodworms too, just because those are easier for her to eat and she seems to like them.

Petsmart is where I got mine. They aren't usually with the little cans of food though. Did you ask someone at the store if they carry them?

No. :( Last time I was there, it was late and there was hardly anyone around to ask, other than the cashier.
