They need some sort of green in diet. I have used peas.. even spinach in my mix. Didn't use gelatin and put mine in syringes to when thawed just squished a little into each container. the fish loved it. got too many water changes to make it now and it funks up water real fast. must do a water change after feeding.

You can find frozen beefhearts at any petstore. My Thai neighbor says they feed them locally made soft pellets and live bloodworms

I don't know about beef heart being the main ingredient. But I've used shrimp (salt or fresh). If I ever decide to use beef heart, I'd only use 10% of the total mixture.

I've heard people using snails. I used them long time ago to make carp pellets. But never tried them for bettas.

If your breeding blue base color beef heart is a good choice to power grow then
But if your batch is red base stick with the shrimp
Worm are easier to deal with
U can culture them year round
