What brand betta pellets are best?

Everyone is always asking about betta foods. Which brand do you think is best?

I normally just use these betta flakes that I have, but I recently got a sample of the Hikari betta pellets, and Bruce LOVES them! So yeah, I'll have to wait and see if his colors turn more vibrant but so far I like them.

Aqueon. Don't use flakes, they are really bad for water quality.

I've been using the NLS small fish formula because I couldn't find the betta formula. So far I don't see anything different with coloring or health, so I'm not going to kill myself looking for the betta version.

SnowySurface: The Small fish formula is actually better because it has higher protien. Plus I think that the smaller pellets are easier to digest. :)


IMHO, asking what the best pellet is probably won't yield very accurate results. Hikari used to be one of the best foods on the market, but they changed the formula. Unfortunately, people keep buying it because they have such a good reputation.

Good foods are based solely on ingredients, which is why there are some that are scientifically proven to be better than others based on the dietary needs of bettas. Feeding your betta food that has a first ingredient that is wheat is like feeding a cat a vegetarian diet. Their bodies are just not set up to digest greens. It is probably why a lot of bettas have bloat problems. That and freeze dried bloodworms...

I voted New Life Spectrum. I use the Betta Formula and love it. The tiny pellets are perfect for small Betta mouths, the ingredients are high quality, and since using it none of my Betta's have had constipation problems.

most I can't comment on, haven't used and or not available.

I do like ones that have fish as the primary ingredients. But I prefer frozen.
