I buy feeder crickets to feed my bearded dragon in large quantities, usually 5 dozen at a time. I gut load them with cricket feed, etc, until they are fed to him. I have occasionally fed the bettas I have owned in the past and the one I have at this second tiny, tiny pinhead crickets as a little treat. I only feed the tiniest ones I have in the box: less than 1/4 inch long ones, and I fast the day after. The bettas have always torn the crickets to bits, usually eating one leg at a time, and eventually eating the body as well. I've never noticed this causing any bloat or constipation issues. Thoughts?
