hmm.. mine hardly ever sink. The only time they sink is when I either drop them too high or the fish doesn't see it and hits it.. knocking it down. Mine usually always go after the sinkers as well.. I've even seen them trolling the bottom for uneaten pellets and digging in the gravel for them.. maybe they're 1/2 catfish LOL

Mine don't sink either, but my girls have also learned from Tippy to root around the bottom for uneaten goodies. Of course, there isn't anything down there since they eat everything in sight.

Mine get thawed frozen brine shrimp alot, and Hikari bio-gold pellets (most get three, Spitfire's picky and will only eat one and only if I split it into pieces, sometimes they get 4.), and BettaMin flakes if I'm busy or feeling lazy. They actually love the flakes, the only complaint I have with them is the mess it leaves in your tank. The brine shrimp takes top billing in their favorites list though.

My betta, who is a frisky love and my little buddy is a big eater likes to eat twice a day. I feed him in the morning when I get up. I give him a scoop of Daphnia and about 10 hours later I give him a scoop of mysis. Mid day he gets a treat of one blood worm. I've had this Betta for 6 mos. I bought Betta Dial A Treat which comes with a spoon. His name is Little Face, he swims around my hand then sits in it, lets me pet him, (clean hands of course) he swims through a hoop, jumps for his blood worm and follows the spoon on the outside of the bowl, he is very loving and smart. I am so happy to get him out of the tiny cup he was living in but wish I could have gotten more of them out. I with that practice would stop.

My boy gets fed once a day (in the morning), usually a different number of pellets depending on the size of the pellets. Once a week I feed either frozen brine shrimp or blood worms instead. And I don't do fasting days.
