BeeGryphon Posted April 4 Share Posted April 4 Hi all! I'm pretty new to this and may be overthinking it, but I'd rather ask and know. I have a betta in a tank with ember tetras and pygmy corydoras as well as two nerite snails. I feed Xtreme Community Crave Flakes, crushed, but also got Xtreme Betta Pellets because it's my understanding bettas have more specific nutritional needs from prepared food. The pellets instruct to feed 2-3 pellets 2x per day. That's fine, he eats them up readily, but after he's done with his pellets he starts eating the flakes still floating, which seems to be a lot as they sink pretty slowly. My question is: is that going to be too much for him? If so, should I: Feed pellets just once a day and flakes once a day? Do a short presoak on flakes so more sink more quickly? Something else? Either of the above options would probably be good because I notice they do stay floating for a while since the tetras wait for them to sink and the corys only take a very little bit off the top, so the food is just staying there for a while it seems. Thanks for any insight! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
