That's going to end up rotting in your tank. Bettas can survive 2 weeks without food so yeah. Bettas would hardly think that's food. I REALLY don't suggest that. Too much ammonia and so. You just put them in the tank but your Betta won't care.

Those aren't great for Betta fish.. They will rot in the tank and cause your fish to get sick. If by some chance your Betta figures out it's supposed to be food then he will gorge himself or herself on it. If you're going out of town for a week don't worry about it at all. Bettas can go a month without eating and survive. I really don't recommend using those at all.

I dont reccomend feeding those, as they can foul the water, causing ammonia spikes(lethal to fish) and even overfeeding.
They also have no real nutrition.

Yeah, they aren't good for your tank. If they don't realize food is coming out the food will sink to the bottom, rot and cause ammonia which will kill your fish by the time you get back.

If your fish finds out it is food, he/she is going to keep eating until it's all gone. Bettas are what you call "eat all you can now because we don't know when our next meal is" so they will eat and eat until they kill themselves. Overfeeding is one of the most common ways fish die. Plus, the food in those things is junk. Bettas are meat eaters, therefore need a pellet with at least the first 3 ingredients some sort of meat. So even if your fish does miraculously survive, it's not helping him/her in any dietary sort of way.
