favorite foods?

I'm looking to expand my voracious little Cello's diet a bit. She currently gets New Life Spectrum pellets, Hikari freeze dried blood worms, Hikari frozen blood worms, and fruit flies. Not all at once of course Just on a random rotation.

(I used to feed Hikari pellets as well, until I learned that they changed their formula to be mainly wheat meal. )

What are some of your favorite foods or treats?

I just gave my little guy some frozen brine shrimp for the first time, I was kind of concerned it was going to make a mess of the tank, but I just poured a bit in at a time and he did his best to make sure none of it hit the bottom, lol

As far as pellets go, Omega 1 betta pellets are fantastic. I also treat with the standard freeze dried brine shrimp, bloodworms, or daphnia.

Frozen glassworms (mosquito larvae). If you think about it, I bet they eat lots of mosquito larvae in the rice paddies.

Live mosquito larvae. I live in the south and have tons during the summer months. I love to watch the bettas chase them around.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
