Pellets vs Flakes

What is everyone's opinion on each? Pellets? Flakes? I have Hikari Betta pellets, tetra flakes, betta buffet flakes, granules, and frozen shrimp. I have tried them all, and honestly he seems to enjoy the flakes the most. He tears them up like Jaws with a baby seal in his mouth, his WHOLE body starts jerking and he just noms it up like a little pig. But with the little pellets he is just like "meh".

I would reccomend the Hikari pellets. Both of my Bettas gobble them up- They love them!

My guys looove hikari pellets, but at the moment I'm all out and can't go up to get some for a while, so I've been feeding them some Vitapet "Betta Food" that I always have spare - its crap and makes them bloat like crazy :C

The pet shop Roy was from would feed him flakes, he didnt really eat them though, as soon as I gave him pellets he was all OH FINALLY, REAL FOOD NOMNOM

I feed pellets Monday - Friday, shrimp flakes on Saturday and fast on Sunday.

I have never had a problem with a betta accepting flakes - or pellets or any other kind of food. They are, IMO/E, such PIGS - LOL!!!!

I don't think it really matters what form the food is in as long as it is HIGH quality!

I think I'll keep feeding the hikari pellets, but try to swap/ substitute some other flakes or worms one or two days a week.
