Ok, two different questions. I keep seeing stuff about Indian Almond Leaf. I don't know what it is, where to find it, what it's for, etc. My betta is not sick or injured, does he need it to prevent illness or is it more for when they get sick/injured? Will the tannins hurt his tank mates (mollies and platies)?
Second, he is a pig. He is eating their flakes in addition to his own food (NLS, I feed him 2-3 pellets 2x a day, normally, but he just keeps eating their food, so now I feed him 2 pellets in the AM and that's it, and he eats some of their tropical flakes.)
Since he does this, and I can't train him to stop, I've thought about maybe getting a high quality flake. He has no qualms about eating flakes. He does love his pellets, but really, he eats anything. What is a good quality flake that would be ok for everyone? I can give them veggie matter as a separate feeding, I know they definitely need some vegetation in their diet.
