Best Recommended Betta Food?

Right now I've been feeding my bettas "API Betta Premium Pellets." It's one of those foods that stays in the package and just sprinkles out a tube cut on the end.
I sprinkle the food in every morning, and when I get home from school, most - if not all - of it is still sitting at the surface. What's the best food that you would most recommend for bettas? One that they'll actually eat?

A lot of people here recommend these three brands: New Life Spectrum, Omega One, and Hikari Bio-Gold.

I currently use New Life Spectrum. I've used other pellets but Gyarados used to spit them out once in a while. He loves these though.

Hm, I think I'll go over to my local pet store this week and see what they carry. I don't want to lose my fish just from them being picky eaters!

Atison Betta Pro is the best, hands down.

Available from the IBC and no you do not have to be an IBC member to order from them. www.ibcbettas.org

I have a can last me for over a year with hundreds of bettas to feed daily.

I use New Life Spectrum. It's the one food that all my boys devour, even the pickiest eater who thinks his food has to move to be edible.

I recommend Omega One Betta Buffet pellets. They have really good ingredients and high protein :)

It also depends on what kind of bettas you have. Pet store brand foods are 99% junk. The only ones I like are HBH Betta Bites along with Pro for my show fish.

I feed HBH Betta Bites and my boys love 'em! I throw in the occasional frozen brine shrimp and they're all fat, active & happy. I also pitch in a very few flakes for the Cherry Shrimp & my boy in that tank is not opposed to snacking on them unless I poke them so they quickly sink. Little piggy.
