My Betta loves the flakes. They barely have time to hit the water and he has them all eaten!

i've actually never tried feeding my betta flakes because he loved the pellets i first bought. I always worried bout using flakes because of the mess people say it makes as well as many people saying bettas don't like them. But i might buy them now to vary up his diet.

I feed all 4 of them small pinches and they eat them before they sink.

Never heard that they don't like them. I just heard they make the tank messy. If anyone that uses them lives near me, please let me know. I have some that I bought for Hannibal but he wont eat them. Finally got him eating pellets (originally would only eat freeze dried bloodworms).
