So when buying food, what are things to look for? What ingredients make a food good?

You want the first ingredients to be protein. Like meat type things. Some examples would be whole salmon, halibut, shrimp, etc. You don't want a food that has wheat/flour as the first ingredient(s).

So Omega One pellets or NLS are the best? are the Omega One flakes any good? I've been feeding mine TetraBetta pellets since It's all I have right now but the first ingredient is wheat meal I'll definitely look for either of those!

Yepp, the best I've seen at least. I don't like feeding flakes because it is hard to portion control, so they can easily get bloated and also flakes make a mess. I'd recommend the pellets. :)

NLS is better. Omega One has wheat gluten. The flakes have a lot of protein but it might be from cheap fillers :/ Don't worry, I fed Lebron TetraBetta, too. I decided to get him NLS, and he's willing to jump for them more than bloodworms! He's a satisfied Betta. :)

ah I see, I'll go with pellets then. (: As for NLS, where do I find that? My petco has NLS but not the betta one

Has anybody tried mini pellets from Sakura? They sound interesting.

What about fish meal as a first ingredient? Is that a good protein source?

As mentioned earlier you Want the "meal" to be a specfic type of fish. Fish meal is the gross leftover parts of a fish. You want "salmon meal" or something like that, not something general like "fish meal"
