I have been feeding the New Life Spectrum Betta food for several months, and my guys eat it well, everyone is happy. But, the betta pellets are SO TINY. Two of my fish are freakishly huge bettas (they're not kings...one is a crowntail and the other is a some sort of halfmoon) but they're the size of king bettas or bigger. One of them is okay with the tiny pellets, he just eats lots of them, but the other seems to have trouble eating them. He has a thick upper lip, and they get stuck on his lip when he goes for them and he can't get them off. Right now he just waits for them to sink and catches them or eats them off the bottom, which is fine, but I wondered about larger pellets.
I went to my LFS, and there are some larger New Life Spectrum pellets, the ingredients seem to be largely the same, but they're not specifically for bettas. Would it hurt my larger boys to feed them these larger pellets that may not be exactly the same?
Are there certain ingredients to definitely avoid?
These larger pellets are all NLS, so they're high quality, and "meat" is their first ingredient, they're just not geared towards bettas.
Anyone else ever have this quandry?
