New Life Spectrum doesn't float?

Okay, so my bettas are picky and will NOT eat food after it has sunk to the bottom.

I've heard from many on here that New Life Spectrum is the way to go for the fishies, but I've found that it barely floats for a second before sinking to the bottom.

Is there another high quality food out there that DOESN'T sink after a nanosecond? xD

Omega One. It will sink if you drop it from too high up, push it down, or leave it for a while but if you feed one pellet at a time, your betta will see it and won't let it sink.

I'm really just looking for a food that has garlic in it.

I heard garlic is very good for their immune system.

NLS does float... Just don't drop it from to high up. Feed him one at a time.

Some of my NLS pellets sink as soon as they are placed, not thrown or dropped from a high angle, but some just float until I forced them down. I make them sink because betas are done eating and those will be treats for my invertebrates.

Yeah that is the only thing I dont like about it, it will sink if there is much movement when you drop it in. So I do one at a time and try to drop it right in front of Perseus and hope he doesnt jump causing it to sink but if it does I always say theres one for the pond snails...lol Also it help to use a small flashlight so he can see it better since they are so tiny, flashlight in one hand pellet in the other works for me.
