Flakes?!

So I had extra flakes laying around (dont worry they arent old, they are from adolf) and I decided to see if Joshy would eat em. And he gobbled them right up!! I guess he hates pellets O.o
Are TetraColor flakes okay for him to eat or should I get like....betta flakes or a different kind of flakes?


PS does anyone know where to get live blood worms from? I wanna try em for the ADF and my bettas

You need betta food. Tropical fish flakes contain vegetable matter that bettas can't digest well.

I am a flake hater. Too messy, too much air, not enough food. I would just chuck 'em. As has already been mentioned they don't have enough crude protein for bettas.

Jupiter is right. Intermittently is okay, but I would not feed them on an ongoing basis.
