Whole Fish Meal (Whole salmon, herring & other mixed fishes) is the first ingredient of Aqueon. Most fish eat other fish. Unless they are herbivores, they need meat! And bettas are 100% carnivores!

I feed Aqueon because it's the best I can find here. The store that sells it is closing so I'll be buying NLS online. That, by far is the best pellet you can buy. I think the Hikari used to be just as good until they changed to more wheat ingredients.

I have 2,000 Bettas. (approximately) I've tried several different brands including Tetramin Betta pellets, Wardley's; Betta Pro and Hikari mini bites for juveniles. Most of the regular Betta pellets vary in size from one container to the next and I've had to rescue a few and lost a few younger Bettas from choking to death on them. Then a friend told me about Ken's fish food. I now use his Super Color 1.0 mm Betta pellets exlusively. Not only can I feed it to younger Bettas without worrying about them choking on them but it also lets me go longer between water changes without fouling their water. I highly recommend it as well as the Tropical Flake food I feed my Bettas and Cichlid pellets I feed my Quetzal Cichlids.

I use HBH Betta Bites. I heard they are good, plus they float for a good while and are small. :)

I don't know what the best betta pellet is but I know my betta loves the food he gets now. First time I introduced the pellets, it was like watching a pacman game in action.

Availability is also a problem in my area. Glad I found something decent that can purchased in the area.

I don't think Hikari is what it used to be. I was at petco a few months back and looked at the ingredients and it had in fact been changed, so now wheat is the first ingredient. NLS on the other hand have krill and herring meal as the first two ingredients, followed by wheat, seaweed extract and then various fruits/veggies.

Exactly. Which is why I strongly believe if the "best" is based on scientific facts then NLS would come out on top. Unfortunately Hikari is still strongly supported by many because of the good (and well earned) reputation it has even when the quality of the product has gone down by quite a severe amount.
