Should I get some smaller betta food pellets, or allow my betta to continue to eat the tetras' flakes?
I cycled my tank with some redfin tetras. Ammonia and nitrites zeroed. I got my betta. I call him "Steve". He's kind of a spade-veil tail, blue/green/purple depending on how the light hits him. Very cool.
Anyway, I have the "mini-pellets" from tetrabetta. I toss in a couple, and he can't seem to eat them because it looks like they're too big. Sometimes I'll smash them a bit to make the smaller, but he'll usually just ignore them if smashed.
In the meantime, the tetras like to play "football" with the betta pellets.
When I toss in some flakes for the tetras, Steve seems to enjoy chopping down on the flakes.
Thanks for your time and consideration.
