New life spectrum food

I got some of this today... an the pellets are literally this big > . seriously... I dont know how much to feed to my bettas... o.o

I usually feed 4 normal pellets at a meal... but these are strange... so tiny...

Anyone else feed NLS Growth and know how much i should feed?

I would suggest still feeding the four or so a meal and just see if your betta has any response to the change. My bettas get feed hikari gold betta, and theyre about the same size. They get 3 pellets twice a day and are fine.

Remember, a bettas stomach is about the size of its eye ball, so they dont need that much.

peace. love. & bettas.

I use NLS betta formula and they're pretty big. If they're that much smaller than regular pellets then give them 5 instead of 4.

i dont know how big your screen is... But these pellets are TINY... Like, seven or eight would be equal to one of the normal pellets...

I offered a small ammount to one of my pettas who had previously refused even soaked and crushed regular pellets, and he inhaled them as though he had never eaten in his life... ( i had been feeding him with just simple thawed frozen blood worms)


I got the NLS GROWTH formula, not the betta formula.

the pellets you were using before may have been really big, like too big for your betta to comfortably eat so that may be why he refused them. The smaller ones may be easier for him and hence he ate them readily.

peace. love. & bettas.

I dont know if you just skim posts or what, but i did say that they were crushed and soaked before offering him the regular pellets.


I dont want to sound rude, and maybe i am too doped up on pain meds to be talking to people, but it seems like you arent even listen to me.

I feed the same food, sometimes. I don't count them out, they just get the tiniest pinch. Probably about 10-15 pieces if you were to count them out? Not a lot. I really just can't think of a good way to measure it right now. My brain is fried too. I guess I don't worry as much about overfeeding it because the pieces are smaller so I think they are easier to digest.



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?

Ah, yeah that makes sense... Lol! The lady at the LFS said the can of food i got was like a years supply for at least ten bettas, i just laughed, but seeing the size, i believe her. XD

I tested it out, and just a teeny pinch seems to work just fine. ^-^ Thanks. Now i should go to bed before the codine knocks me out at my desk...

Yeah I use NLS and they're pretty small. My fish usually get a small pinch per feeding. usually about 8-10 pellets. But all but two of mine are full grown adults, so they can handle that and more. I try to feed based on their size.
