*laughs* I love the fruity tictacs too. But I rarely get them.
Me, I feed my fish flakes that I got when I bought them. My mother suggested that I also feed my fish live food as well, like brine shrimp, black worms, and daphina. But while live food is cheap, I've noticed a lot a controversy as to how cultures of live food are kept, seeing as the food might reproduce faster than my fish can eat. I only have three fish.
Heck, sometimes I wonder if I should even give them live food as an occasional treat at all. So far they're just stuck with flakes.
Venus and Geshia, two of my fish, seem to like music, seeing as they are in the same room as I am in when I play my CDS.

Mine won't even go near flakes, they hate the stuff.
I wouldn't suggest giving your fish live food. Maybe freeze dried Bloodworms on occasion.

Live foods CAN contain parasites. I feed my fish flakes occaisionally. Its Tetra Bettamin flakes but they mostly eat pellets.

Thanks. Mine eat flakes no problem, but I think it's because it's all they know.

Thanks for the warning about the parasites, and I think we use the same brand of flakes.

my flakes are the bettamin tropical medley and while Jeffrey eats them no problem, Mal has some issues...with the flakes. he picks out the freeze drine baby brne shrimp lol i was thinking about getting pellets (and putting them in yummy tic tac boxes (:) and just feeding them two different foods,but at the same time. i also have this Tetra brand baby shrimp (sun dried gammarus.) that i'm currently reserching on google. they dont say FOR BETTAS but if im going away for a weekend.... then ill give each of them one and they'll eat them but im not sure if its okay?

My bottle actually says freeze dried krill and not shrimp although it looks like little shrimps and mine doesn't say specifically for bettas either so I'm sure what you have is ok.
