Good new foods for bettas?


Recommended Posts

Anything live or frozen, basically fresh food (bloodworms, daphnia, brine shrimp). I really believe now, that bettas don't do well on a diet of dry foods only. You could keep a dry pellet food around, for convenience when you don't want to thaw frozen food. But you'll use so little of it before it gets stale, it hardly seems worth it. IDK, just my $0.02. I'm a little jaded after my last betta died. I want another, but not until I can provide an optimal diet.

I’ve not had good luck with floating pellets marketed for Bettas. Mine spits them out. 

Mine like flakes and Hikari Bio-Pure Freeze Dried Daphnia. 

I don't use ones marketed for Bettas but I use Hikari Micro Pellets that the Harlequin Rasboras also eat.. I'm pretty sure @Irene made a video about floating plants for Bettas and how some are too big for the Betta's mouth. She mentioned going for smaller pellets
