Darth Mollusk Posted July 14, 2022 Share Posted July 14, 2022 My chunky pumpkin of a betta has shunned floating pellets (fluval bugbites, northfin betta) and seems to struggle with flakes, too. He much prefers to head downward to eat the repashy the corys and snails get. He does go for the floating food. He just seems to sort of hit it with his face more than anything. Sometimes he'll go for it once it's sunk. But the fact that he's not really eating the betta-specific food, now I'm rethinking my feeding schedule. I'm always paranoid about bloat etc with bettas (though it's been over a decade since I've kept one, RIP). Here's what I'm thinking now, and if anyone has any thoughts, I am all eyes. Sunday - Fast Monday - Repashy Tuesday - Frozen baby brine shrimp Wednesday - Fast Thursday - Repashy Friday - Repashy Saturday - Frozen baby brine shrimp The repashy is a mix of Soilent Green, Community Plus, and calcium carbonate. The shrimp get shrimp king, and I add algae wafers for the snails as needed. I wonder if splitting up each day into two feeding would be best? Should I only feed repashy at night and try to coax him into eating the betta food? It's just so much harder to regulate how much the betta eats in a community tank. Especially one this food determined 😆. I was so worried about curbing aggression (which is nonexistent), I wasn't prepared for this particular challenge.
