OOOHHH... I thought you meant live. There are freeze dried and frozen. Those are at pet stores. I need to ask my Petsmart if they have frozen...

Okay, awesome - I'll look for the frozen ones. I know they probably love live food, but I feel bad feeding it to them

I was really surprized Perseus didnt like the freeze dried shrimp I got him but he loves the freeze dried bloodworms he gets for treats twice a week, he gets some excited when he sees those and sometimes jumps for them.

Both Petco and Petsmart sales frozed brine.
When you shop for fish food you want to look at the ingredient list.
If it has something like "fish meal" or "flour" as the first ingredient, place back on the shelf. You want to look for whole ingredients, like brine shrimp, krill, herring, etc.

Everyone pretty much covered it above..

I give Teeney a bit of variety, she gets NLS pellets in the morning & Omega one pellets at night... About once a week she gets a frozen bloodworm as a treat. :)

I always reccomend frozen rather than freeze dried because freeze dried is easier to bloat them, it's more processed and it's more expensive. A canister of freeze
Dried is only a couple dollars cheaper but you get about half as much. I got a huge package of frozen blood worms at petco for $5.

... and fish do eat plants in the wild but any quality pellet will have algae in them

And garlic! It helps with the taste and smell. It's good for the Betta, too. ^^ New Life has it. Yay!
