Murray, my veil tail, who lives at my office, has always eaten pellets. He's now eating Omega One and loves them. (He started out on another brand which I learned was not good, so I switched.) My three at-home Bettas (one young male, and two female crowntails) eat New Life Spectrum pellets. I also have tried them on Omega One flakes just because I bought them by mistake, thinking they were pellets, but none of the three will even go near them. I plan to switch back and forth between these two brands of pellets (Omega One and New Life Spectrum), so that when one container of one kind runs out, I'll buy the other one, and just go back and forth.
All four also get either frozen blood worms or frozen brine shrimp a few times a week in the evening.
NOTE: If anyone is interested in a brand new (opened but almost completely full) container of Omega One flakes that has been opened less than three weeks, please PM me and I will be happy to mail them to you. I would hate for them to go to waste.
