Well so far, nobody has anything negative to say about it. So I'm guessing having brown rice as the second ingredient is ok?

I would only be feeding it once a week as a change up to their other two foods.

I think it should be fine because the protein level is still pretty high. I think for bettas it should be at least 45% protein or something like that.

I tried using bettamin on my fish Skittles, but he wouldn't eat it at all. Gave it to my two girls, and they love it! They try and guzzle down!
LOL, it really stinks though, and as said above, it gets annoying that the food sticks to the lid and then gets everywhere!lol

Haha… True! that darn container, when shook and opened, messes up the desk, so I never shake it. What I noticed about it is that it is composed of 3 distinguishable ingredients (upon visual inspection alone), the main red flakes, brine shrimp and another whitish particle (roughly the same size as the shrimp) but I don’t know what it is though, maybe something with fiber.


Anyway, since I haven’t got hold of any live foods yet, what I do is feed just the flakes during morning and, with the use of a pair of tweezers (unused of course), I pick out just the shrimp and that other particle and feed ‘em that during dinnertime.

I'm still pondering on it, but if I do, I will be SURE to let everybody know.

TBH, since everybody is doing so well on what I am doing now I don't know if I should just leave well enough alone!!!

IMO, I think my bettas like it better when I add a little variety in their diet. So I think it would be good adding something new. Rotate what you feed them, maybe. Or a little tiny flake of one, and a little tiny flake of the other kind as well. LOL.
