Um i dunno lol. I just remember reading flakes arent that good for bettas. I think it can cause constipation or something but im not sure. I did get flakes for my pandas though,so im sure once they are together Fishy will prolly try some. I found hikari tropical fish flakes at my local lfs for cheap.

Someone gave me some and I think that may have caused Merlot's problem.I gave my fish some one day a few weeks ago to see if they liked it. I think I'm going to throw them out. lol

I don't think it's bad for them. Its just that most bettas prefer pellets.

I gave some to mine a few weeks ago and they ate it. I use Hikari bio gold as my staple diet.I didn't want to toss it until I knew something about it.

Check to see the content of the flakes. Most are vegitive in nature and Betta's are carnivorious. This will make Betta's constipated and lead to bloat.

I guess there's no "meat" in them.
