You are very welcome. Fredfish is not a picky eater so I did not have that issue. The flakes I use are Omega One Betta Flakes, come in a white plastic jar with a red top and royal blue background for the wrapper.
I chose this brand because even though the protein content is slightly lower than other brands, the filler is much
lower. The flakes in my jar are pretty big, so FredFish will take them in, spit part out and then retrieve what he spit out. Watch the ingredient label, soy, wheat, et cetera fillers listed second or third do not come home with me.
EDIT: Since the flakes are big, I only feed the equivalent of two or three. One meal is Hikara 2-3 round pellets the other is flakes. I fast him 24 in the middle of the week. Bloodworms 1-2x per week.
Glad to hear Fresca is doing well!
