I feed my little guy Aquoen betta pellets. It comes in an easy to open bottle, it helps to brighten their colors, it gives them vital nutrients, it supports their immune system, they're the perfect size for a bettas mouths and its all natural!! Phil loves them but make sure u soak them in water for a few minutes so they're easier to chew.

No offense, but aqueous isn't that great of a food. Whole fish meal (lower quality parts of fish) is 1 st ingredient, then comes to wheat, and fillers. That being said, it's definitely not the WORST food available.
I wouldn't reccomend soaking the pellets, soaking them removes some of the nutrients.

For curiosity's sake, what is so bad about the wheat filler in the Hikari? I've been feeding it and haven't noticed any issues, but if there is a problem with it, I'd be more than willing to switch. Can the wheat filler hurt your Betta? Is there something better to look for?

I feed New Life Spectrum for Bettas.
They float for a minute or two but I hand feed one pellet at a time so I know no food left uneaten.

It's a cheap filler from wheat. It's a bad source to get protein. New Life doesn't have it. :)

Personally, Hikari has kicked major azz for me. They're small enough for mine and he loves them. Only drawback is they do have a strong fish odor.
