I personally prefer pellets over flakes--I use the Hikari Betta Bio-Gold pellets. I'm pretty new to fishkeeping, but in my experience I think feeding as wide a variety of appropriate foods can go a long way in keeping an animal happy and healthy. So I alternate pellets, freeze-dried blood worms, frozen blood worms, live flightless fruit flies (def fave), and sometimes flakes on different days. Trying to find more things to add to the mix .

Oh yeah, I feed mine both and I noticed that flakes are alot more messy. The pellets get swallowed hole but the flakes break off into a bunch of tiny pieces and some of those sink to the bottom...

I used to hate the flakes when it was just my betta, but now that I have tetras and cories, the tetras are so eager to go in and grab whatever my messy betta drops haha.

I've never tried flakes. I'm always worried about feeding them too much of it, and it seems messy.

I have Wardley's pellet food along with Top Fin pellets. I'd prefer to get Hikari, but I couldn't find any at the time I was buying them.

My bettas eat both. Wardley's is really big though, and sort of hard to break down.

I also give them freeze dried brine shrimp, which they never really showed much reaction to. But bloodworms are what they really love to eat!

I feed mine Hikari bio-gold and twice a week I feed them bloodworms. I'm never feed flakes to my bettas beacause I hear most don't like them. I do feed flakes to my other fish thou.
