Favorite live food for adult bettas?

What's your favorite live food for your adult bettas, especially if you use it to condition them for spawning?

I was using flightless fruit flies but, some just ended up not liking them. Right now, I have a culture of daphnia growing and, they seem to enjoy that as a treat. Our LFS doesn't carry anything for live food so, I hate to buy frozen.

So for now, it's Daphnia in between frozen feedings.

For fry, it's those small daphnia (really tiny), MW, BW, and WW.

If you can find a white worm culture they can be used for adults. Since your conditioning the frozen bloodworms can work very well.
Hikari has good quality frozen bloodworms.

Which food are you trying to feed her? and how long has it been going on like this with spitting out?
