Food question!

Hi All!
We recently purchased a DragonScale Betta from Petsmart for my daughter's birthday.

The girl at the store recommended 'Color Enhancing' Betta Bits by Top Fin for his food.
When he tries to eat, he spits it back out. I don't know if the pellets are too big, his mouth is unusually small or what. We smashed the bits a little bit and then put them in and he was able to eat that with no issue.

Has anybody had this problem? Or can you recommend a different food?

Welcome to the forum and what a neat thing to do...getting your daughter a Betta...great hobby for a child to share with the family......

I would get several different types of food to offer-the more varied the better....no one food has the needed nutrition....what one is missing the other may have.....it doesn't have to be Betta specific food-you want the first couple of ingredients to be fish/seafood either whole or meal....a good quality varied diet fed in small frequent meals is best...

Love to see some pic and hear more about the setup......

Thanks for the info! We're going to the pet store today to pick up a few different kinds of new food. And maybe some treats as well! =)

I'll certainly post pics too!
