Female betta too small!

Hello everyone! My little female betta seems to be too small to eat even the tiniest of pellets. She always seems interested in them and tries to eat the pellets but they just eventually sink to the bottom because she was unable to eat them. I saw some flakes specifically ment for bettas at PetSmart today. The brand is BettaMin if anyone was wondering. Would these be good enough for her? Or is there anything else that I should try? HELP!

Try crushing the pellets. What's the brand of pellets that you're feeding her? Pellets are better than flakes.

I have always heard that they were better, but I feel like i almost have no where else to turn to :/ I honestly couldn't tell you the brand, I ripped off the logo a while ago...my bad. BUT I do know that it is a very good brand because I looked up the brand before getting it and heard great things about it.

Maybe you can post a pic of the jar that it's in? Or maybe search in the trash can? XD

I'd say that they're medium/large-ish. My male betta has no problem with them! I have been crushing them up for while now, but the problem with that is that they sink like the INSTANT they hit the water :/

i have those BettaMin flakes and after giving them to my girls for a week they blew up like balloons (and mind you they only got flakes in the morning, they got pellets at night). so now its just back to pellets.

i had a teeny tiny female a few years back. i had to crush her pellets, then a nice breeder from another forum gave me a sample of New Life Spectrum Grow. not only are they itty bitty(like a fine sand), but they actually helped her beef up and grow so i no longer had to crush larger pellets. :3 it's about $11 or so for a jar of it off ebay and a little more on Amazon, if you can order pellets online.
