Betta food recommendations?

So I have a very picky eater on my hands... while Fishstick would love to nom everything in site (including my fingers), Button turns up his nose at the HBH Betta Bites which I usually feed them. At first I thought he just didn't want to eat because he was stressed about being in a divided tank (he bit his fins), but they've been separated for over a week now and at the most he'll eat a single pellet once a day and sometimes not at all.

So yeah, any recommendations for food for my picky little eater? He loves brine shrimp, but I know I can't feed that to him daily... He also has a tiny mouth... Also, what's everyone's opinion on flake food? It seems weird to me to feed bettas flakes...

Most bettas don't like flakes. All of my picky eaters ended up loving the Hikari Betta bio-gold pellets.

I had one betta that only ate Bettamin flakes. All my others eat hikari bio gold but they all also will gladly eat the flakes too. In fact, I've only had one betta not like the bettamin flakes so I'd try them if you want. They're good for small mouths too because they're soft and small.

Thanks for the opinions... I don't really want to order anything online since shipping is about the same price as the food, so I'll see what they have the next time I'm able to get to a pet store since Button has apparently decided to condescend to eating pellets last night and this morning silly fishy!

The wardleys pellets are at walmart. Like $3. I would really give those a try. I've never had a problem with them.
