Bahamut, the shrimp is probably just hungry and stressed. Give him a little cup or something to hide in and drop in a few fish flakes or soaked pellets.

Neil, that's just something some fish do; it's like a fishy version of OCD. Having plants or something blocking parts of the glass will help :)

XD My little sister's fish, Draco tends to glass surf as well.... and then he realized he was in a divided tank. All he does now is patrol the mesh area and flare.

i think the main reason people dont really want to give flakes is because its hard to control the amount per feeding. its inconsistent, and sometimes its hard to tell if you are overfeeding. also, betta mouths are designed to kinda just,, 'pluck' something from the surface and eat them, such as bugs or mosquito larvae. with flakes, sometimes they dont eat it becuase they dont nibble at food like guppies, they uh... just gulp it. pellets are designed for their mouths and eating habits, and its easier to know how much you are really feeding.

also you have to think about the nutritional values they are getting, and if its enough..

but if your bettas fine with flakes, then i dont see why not, as long as you have a good control of the amount you are feeding.

dont know if this helps, but yeah.. ><
