are these foods any good?

today I was at walmart looking at fish food and all the food had ingredients like "fish meal" and "dried yeast" and other stuff that didn't seem like it would be healthy for a betta. yes they have freeze dried blood worms but I already ahve them and I wanted to give him some variety in his diet. then I saw jars of "freeze dried krill" and something called "freeze dried baby shrimp" scientific name Gammarus Pulex. are either of those foods good for bettas? thanks for your help!

The first ingredient in your betta's food should be something meaty, like fish or shrimp meal. If yeast or any plant material is first, skip it and look for something else!

I think krill would probably be too big for your betta to eat.

Baby shrimp? Maybe they mean brine shrimp, or baby brine shrimp? If so, it's fine. Brine shrimp make great treats.
