I use NLS Betta formula for my adults ( 3+ months ) My pellets kinda range in size for different mouth sizes. There are tiny, medium, and large pellets. NLS is a sinking pellet, which contains many great oils from fish and fruit/vegetable extracts for great nutrition! Antartic Krill meal, garlic ( for stimulating hunger ) whole herring meal, ginseng, spirulina, are all included in the ingredients. Also, good pluses to NLS is that they are very easy to digest, no hormones are used in this product, and it is color-enhancing! Plus....I personally stay away from flakes and Wheat-based pellets like Hikari, Tetra, or Aqueon. Wheat-based usually float and are " junk food" :P Make sure your betta's tummy isnt bloated. If this happens, fast them a day to avoid over-feeding!
I feed all my adult bettas 3 pellets a day or 2 pellets +1 bloodworm a day.
Bettas are carnivores so they also like to eat: bloodworms, glassworms, beefheart, daphnia, shrimp, triops, flies, maggots, small worms, and misquioto larva!! =D I stay far away from live foods and blackworms...
