Hmmmm - interesting. It doesn't say flakes are bad, just that bettas don't like them. Which is funny, IMO, since I feed all of mine shrimp flakes twice a week and they all eat it.

Maybe they were raised on flakes, then they would be used to it.

No, they weren't so sometimes it takes a few tries, but sooner or later they all fall for the shrimp flakes.

Matter of fact, I have one guy that the breeder fed ONLY live foods to - now HE took some patience!!!!
