Pellets!?

Wait so your supposed to pre-soak pellets!? why doesn't it say that on the feeding directions I have been feeding my bettas hbh betta bites pellets for years and never pre-soaked is this going to kill them?? or since its specificly designed for bettas it it okay to not pre-soak? oh gee now I am worried should I just switch to flakes now or are there untold problems to them too? has anyone not pre-soaked and had the bettas live happy bloat free lives?
I would really like to know,
thank you.

I don't think this is necessary at all, there's no point to soaking. I never do this.

Best not to soak the pellets since that can leach the nutrients and water soluble vitamins....

Pellets will swell up when placed in water, however, they don't swell up like that in gastric acid and enzymes in the gut/GI tract...

It depends on the Betta's Food. I do 2 pellets 3 times a day because my pellets are extra small. :3
