Ok thanks! I'll get them as soon as I can. Another food she refuses is this sample pack I got with the tank called Tetra Min Tropical Flakes.

A lot of bettas hate flakes, so that's pretty normal.

I just fed my fish, although I haven't purchased the other pellets I wanted to make sure she absolutely didn't like the foods I had. She stares at the pellets and appears to sniff them, but then leaves them alone. So, I placed some flakes in. I was surprised that she actually ate some, I don't know if the different colors have different flavors because she likes the red flakes but spits out the yellow ones.

The thing is tropical fish flakes aren't formulated for bettas so they are not a balanced diet. Thats why they make betta food.

Yes, I plan on buying the other betta food but until then I will feed her the flakes.

I buy Hikari Betta Bio-Gold. I haven't tried all the foods on the market or anything, but I know my bettas (all of them I've ever had) did NOT like flakes, but loved Hikari.
