Floating pellets that actually float?

I am feeding my betta's Omega One and about 90% of the time they sink. I need a quality food that actually floats especially since I am feeding the snails Omega one sinking kelp pellets and the betta's keep getting confused.

Hikari Bio Gold is a good floater and a decent pellet. Not as good as nls betta or omega one but close enough.

The Omega One should float for at least a little while, my bettas don't give it a chance to sink, they snatch it as soon as it hits the water. If I hold the pellet in my fingers too long it sinks faster or if I drop it from too high up. I feed NLS, some of the pellets float longer than others but again my bettas typically get most of the pellets before they sink. I don't think your Bettas are confused they're just little piggies. I can feed my bettas they're food then feed my snails algae wafers or veggies & the bettas will munch on them, that's just what they do. I've quit fighting it other than to not feed the snails more than 2-3 times a week. This, I believe, makes the snails do their clean up job.

I use the Omega One pellets for both my Bettas.
They will line up to eat and I drop one in front of them using a tweezer. They grab it in one second. My big Betta chews them out loud! Each feeding session takes like 15 seconds.

Each Betta is in a separate tank. They are both very cooperative.

Feed one pellet at a time. Don't drop the pellet from too high. Do something to get your betta's attention before dropping it in.

I always have my Betta's attention before I put in the pellets I even have placed them in the water and they sink. I always feed in the same spot and both of mine are big eaters but with their food and the snail food sinking it does confuse them , Finn usually chases the snail food then he ignores it when he figures out what it is.

NLS pellets are great at floating,plus my little boys love them so much that they don't get time to sink.

Hikari Bio gold are amazing at floating. I even soak them for a minute before I dump them in the tank and they float right back to the surface.
