Favorite Foods!

What are your Betta's favorite foods? Lebron LOVES his FD Bloodworms and frozen daphnia. He's like Jaws but only 2 inches. xD The frozen daphnia is really hard to feed, though. It's so small and I can see their eyes!!

What's their favorite food?

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Most of my guys actually seem to like their pellets the best. Weird, I know.

Howie gets excited for freeze dried blood worms, but doesn't seem too thrilled for the frozen/dethawed ones, and not much interested brine shrimp, either. Rosco will eat anything, but since he's blind in one eye, it takes a little bit for him to find his food. Percy turns his nose up at everything but pellets. Cali is a piglet and eats everything. And, I haven't tried much with the new guys, yet. Ferris wasn't too sure about the freeze dried blood worm, and Atlas hasn't wanted to eat anything, yet.

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

You're so lucky to have more than 1 Betta... Soon. I'll have more soon. It's so fascinating they have different personalities. Lebron loves his pellets but I guess he likes his treats more.

Funny how different they can be. All of mine go NUTS over any kind of frozen food... they almost always get all of it before it even hits the bottom of the tank.

Nova goes all "shark attack" over his omega one flakes xD and FD blood worms, and any food in general, haven't gotten the chance to try live stuff yet, but I'm sure he'll be quite the hunter...

my other two... well they're just kind of placid about feeding time xD

Well, there the boys go, making a liar of me ^_^ ha ha. I fed everyone frozen/dethawed brine shrimp for dinner and everyone liked it, including Howie and finicky Percy. Ferris wasn't totally convinced, but he still ate some, and Atlas ate for the first time in several days, so I'm very happy. I feel like the mom who just convinced her kids to eat their veggies =}
