Is Omega One Betta Buffet Bites a good food?

Is that brand a good food? How many should I feed my betta per day?

I have not looked at the ingredients of that. But good betta foods are ones high in protein. If you look at the ingredients and fish meal is first, it's a better food. If something like wheat or corn is first, it's not good. Bettas are carnivores, so anything with protiens as the main ingredients are good. I feed my fish 2 pellets twice a day. That all depends on the size of the pellets though. If they're super small, you can feed 3. If too big, then only 1, or you can crush them.

I use a couple different pellet brands for a little added variety, and one that I use is Omega One. The pellets tend to stick together, but they pop right apart if you wiggle a finger nail between them. Ingredient-wise they seem to be a good quality pellet(Crude protein 42%, first ingredient is Whole Salmon)which is why I picked them up....and as for my fish...well, they gobble them up just like any other pellet I guess xD Little piggies....
I usually feed my boys two of these pellets, occasionally three. They tend to vary in size a tad more then most other pellets I've seen, so I judge by what sizes I pull out at feeding time.

+1

I feed Omega one pellets, I usually give either two or three per meal, depending. The boys eat primarily pellets, and they will munch two or more at one time if you let the piggies.

I was wondering if it's a good brand. I bought the Omega One Dried-Freezed Bloodworms. Is frozen like real frozen better or Dried Freezed?

Ohhh... I found the flakes! haha Dur. Still, great food if you ask me. My tropical flakes are only 41% but Whole Salmon, Halibut, Black Cod, Whole Herring , Whole Shrimp, Whole Krill are the first ingredients. Best I can find here.

I meant to buy the pellets yesterday, but I got flakes by accident! How many of those should I feed every day?
