I use the NLS small fish formula. Love the 48% protein. My betta eats them so fast and they really don't sink because they're so small. But I feed a lot more to them cause they're so friggin small. I haven't had any problems with it. Like my betta will swim to it so fast the moment I drop it in. And I feed them some frozen bloodworms twice a week.

I'll check out NLS. I have a question. So I got him a freeze dried shrimp (not brine shrimp though). And they look like REAL SHRIMPS, not the cube and they are huge too. Is is ok if I feed my betta that ?

Ever heard of this brand before?

My friend moved out of town and left me a bottle of this. On the label it says. Ultracolor Community Fish Food.

I have the 5oz container they sell. The ingredients seem pretty good to me, I didn't see any wheat gluten. They had a betta specific food, but when I inquired about it through their phone number, the representative from the company mentioned only about 5 people bought it, so it was discontinued.

I forget who mentioned it in this forum, but wheat gluten is NOT a good ingredient, but I think all the fish food I have on hand has gluten in it, except for this Ultracolor brand stuff.

I wanted to buy some of the betta specific food, but they don't sell it anymore.

Let me know what you guys think. I'll be adding this my betta's dinner menu a couple times a week. I still have 4.7oz of it. Yay!

I think their 5oz jar is the best deal.

They're a really small company, and it's a shame most of their lines are discontinued.

Here's a link...

Hey. I've been feeding my betta Hikari Betta Bio Gold. The first ingredient is wheat flour but it says that its 38% min. crude protein. Other ingredients with wheat and gluten are gluten meal and wheat germ meal. I have soaked it in garlic juice before. My fish likes it. Is it not a good idea to feed him that? Also, should I mix his diet up? I'll take your suggestions into consideration.
I have TetraMin tropical flakes that came with my tank. Is this good for betta or potential neon tetras? First ingredient is fish meal and it says min crude protein 47%.
Thank you. :)

Hikari Betta Bio Gold is fine. I don't recommend feeding the flakes because Betta tend to drop food when it's in flake form. Unless you have other fish in the tank to clean up, that food that falls to the bottom, decays and mess up your water.

Pellets make it easier to monitor how much your betta is eating.

I prefer pellets now because a lot of the health issues bettas tend to have are from overeating.

It's an OK food but it's not the best. :( The older Bio-Gold was. But it changed and now it's bad. The flakes are better for the Neon Tetras. I suggest to cup your Betta 1st and then feed your Tetras.

Okay, thank you. :)
I won't be feeding my betta flakes and will look for alternative foods/pellets, like the ones mentioned.
But when I eventually get neons, I read that this flake food was really good for them.
