Would micro worms plus hikarI betta pellets and bug bites be enough food source for betta adults

Pellets and bug bites by themselves would probably work, I only have one betta, and he completely ignores smaller live foods like micro worms and BBS.

I'd say just add one or two types of frozen food to your betta diet rotation should be sufficient. I'd recommend daphnia and bloodworms

I've got microworms and white worms, but microworms are way too small for adult bettas, they're only good for baby bettas. White worms can be fed to adult bettas, other than that, mine really like frozen brine shrimp and bloodworms.

For Bettas I just just took some of the planera that showed up in my tank and cultured those and cultured brine shrimp eggs till they hatched and feed them and then for when the Bettas first hatch and absorb their yolk , I have two cultures I started four years ago from draining my filter into a jar and put one small spinach leaf in both and now I just put in a tiny bit of fish food every once in a while to keep it a nice green . ( that’s my micro culture , if it turns yellow it has gone bad and have to restart ) I have had four years of successful batches with these cultures I started with everything I had at home except for buying brine shrimp eggs. I use these cultures till they start accepting fry food. Also blood worms and tubifex worms arnt the best till the little guys hit atleast three weeks till one month old . By then I just feed them dry fry food

Huh, my adults never show any interest in microworms or bbs. Maybe it just depends on the betta.
But if you did want some, I can ship you 8oz for $10. I just charge a flat $10 shipping on everything, I've just got extra. White worms are extra. I also have fairy shrimp eggs too, basically freshwater brine shrimp, the babies have the same nutritional value as bbs.

Blood worms are Midge flies and are nearly impossible for the average person to culture. You just need oatmeal or potatoes or similar for microworms, and tubifex can just live in a smaller aquarium.

I would think so, but I'm not an expert. I only have California black worms, not tubifex, but I think they're really similar. They need shallow water, no deeper than 6", a bubbler, and a small container, I'd say minimum size is 1 gallon. I use sterilite 6qt shoeboxes, they're 96¢. Put down a little gravel, feed them some wafers, plant trimmings, and whatnot, water changes 2-3x a week. Just take the tub to the sink, dump half, and refill with water from one of my tanks.
