Size comparison on Omega One pellets?
 
Does anyone have both the Omega One brand Betta pellets and the Omega One brand Super Color small sinking pellets? I'd like to get a size comparison on the two. I have the Betta pellets now, but not the other.
Thanks for all your help!

I have the reg floating (not betta) and the small sinking pellets, and the floating pellets are at least x5 as big.

Maybe this is a little weird, but could you (or someone) measure the diameter of the small sinking pellets? The floating Betta pellets are just the right size for my 55g fish, but I need a sinking food for them and want to stick with this brand. I appreciate your help!

I don't have the Betta, but I have the Omega One Small Color Pellets and these are 2-3 mm or 3/32 - 4/32 inch size. I tried these and the fish refused to eat them, so I moved on to something else. I intend to re-introduce these shortly and see if the larger tetra will take to them. It took them a while to get onto other pellet foods.

I find the Hikari Micro Pellets to be absolutely ideal. Everything likes them. They are very small, 1/32 inch. Ideal for surface fish like hatchets because they will float for a minute or so, but the other fish see to enjoy them.
