    Are pellets or flakes better? It of course depends on what type of fish it is for but I found this that says pellets are always the way to go... image.jpeg
    I have fancy guppies, and am currently feeding flakes and freeze dried brine shrimp. (I'm looking into getting more selection soon) but I thought pellets would be too big for their mouths.

    The pellets I would most likely get are these...
    Here are the flakes

    what do you think? And I've also heard freeze dried is bad, but is it?
    Thank you for all replies in advance:)
    P.S if you click the blue "brine shrimp" it will show the exact one I use.

    IMO I would do pellets. you get more for what you pay for.

    I think it depends, flakes spoil easier and are in general messier than pellets. I would get the pellets, and if they are too big, which I doubt, just crush ‘em up between your fingers. They’re both fine, I think it’s just personal preference.

    I prefer pellets. More control with feeding.

    I guess I'll pick up some pellets then!

    My Betta will only eat pellets if they are very small or broken up. But then, he only eats flakes if they are crumbled too. Hikari Gold pellets are smaller but also more expensive.

    I use Hikari bio gold, my betta loves it.

    Most of my fish will not eat pellets.
