Well any type of flakes always cloud the water, but if you manage the water quality then its okay. Also its because the flakes that are not eaten fall to the bottom and just create bacteria. So a filter is demanded if you dont want to do a complete water change everyday with gravel and such. So this is why a 4-10 gallon tank is recommended. Well i think a 2 gal tank is fine with a filter, if not then you will have to do a 100% water change everyday. So its just the filtration system that you need. As long as you get a bigger tank with a filter in the future. Also please TRY freeze dried bloodworm's. BETTAS GO CRAZY FOR THEM!! lol i have a small canister of them and they are the best! my bettas love them and they DONT bloat the bettas like pellets do. but flakes are okay but i dont like them because they do what they did to your tank. Cloud it. so just get some freeze dried blood worms.
I hope this helped out!
