peas help their digestion. I feed them a pea once every couple of weeks. They normally share the pea.

i haven't fed any of my bettas peas at all and they digest their food fine. I used to fast 1 day a week but now i just fast 2-3 meals a week (usually dinner) and everyone is doing great!

there is controversy on the pea.... some say yes, some say no. I just say, be warned how much you feed as it doesn't really break down for them... I'd prefer the other method, frozen daphnia But, I just fast a day of the week, and never have had a problem.

Interesting. I don't feed my fish on Sundays and sometimes not on Saturdays if I'm out of town. I've read in several places that the peas are good for Bettas and mine LOVE the pea. When they see it coming they jump -- more than for the shrimp, bloodworm, or flakes I feed them.

I've heard they love the mosquito larvae!! Wish I could treat my girls to some. Where I live the mosquito truck comes through a couple of times a night to spray pesticide all over. Yuck. Florence seems to be doing OK but she sure is fat right now.

Right now? 4... They are all under quarantine however due to a disease outbreak :/ almost under control, and I did have 2 more to add but the one gal didn't live through ich o_O so, I have 5, to make back into a sorority. And it is always the smallest one to steal the largest piece of anything and high tail it to gulp it down and swim around with a fat belly x.x
