Which food pellets?

One of my fish eats food pellets, but I am not sure if I should be giving him the kind i have now. What good pellets are out there that would be good for him?

What type of pellets are you giving your betta? Are you feeding him/her small amounts frequently?

I have heard Omega 1 Betta Buffet pellets are REALLY good, but i use Aqueon Betta Pelleted food.

Top fin color enhancing pellets I didn't know it was color enhancing until now. I feed him 2-3 pellets a day sometimes two with a blood worm

New Life Spectrum is the best IMO. Avoid foods that have Wheat Gluten in the ingredients. It's a cheap filler from wheat extract. And don't always feed freeze-dried bloodworms. They are TREAT. 1-3 times per week is OK.

Maybe. My Petsmart doesn't have them so I bought it on eBay. You have to make the meals served throughout the day. Since NLS is so small, I feed 2 Pellets per feeding. I feed 3x a Day. A feeding at morning, at noon, and at night. It's best to give a varied diet.

Well the only reason I feed once a day is to prevent the water from getting dirtier.

Really? I don't feed once per day. I wait to see if my Betta eats his pellets and he does. As long as your Betta eats all of it's food right away, the water won't get dirty. And he would have a full tummy. :3

He eats all of it but then the next day his water is a little murkier. I think he spots some of it back out but I don't know why

Hmm... When do you do water changes? I'm not sure if Bettas throws up their food after they swallowed it... O.O
