Um no. ya the plants produce a little food but you need to feed another more nutritious food like baby brine shrimp.

You can also buy a product made by Wardley
"wardley essentials SMALL FRY"
It works really good even for new born betta's

I don't use any live foods, Just the infushia created by older more established Floating Water sprite.
and "wardley essentials SMALL FRY"
At approx 2 weeks they can start eating very finely crushed fish flakes.
I have had batches that I wasn't aware of survive two weeks on infusia from my watersprite alone,

I do however keep my spawning tanks covered in mature watersprite, More plants mean more infushia,
I also try to get the watersprite to get a greenish algae all over it's top if possible.

Oh I very rarely use infusoria and have just recently started using live plants in my tanks. I've always used brine shrimp with sucess. I don't really wanna try out flake food for such young fry. I do but not till they are one month old or older.

They CAN do ok in a community setting if the other fish are peaceful and leave the betta alone. The betta on the other hand might be aggressive and not get along with the other fish in the community. It depends on the betta's personality. IMO bettas are better off by themselves as they are solitary fish.
