Freeze dried foods are OK but frozen ones are better for them. As long as you don't over feed them, or feed them too often you are good to go.

Nerite snails may be a good choice if you want a snail companion. I believe their eggs only hatch in salt water.

I use freeze dried and frozen foods as treats and not main foods..... too much FD and frozen have caused my bettas to bloat.

why is my veiltail betta fish only eat when i'm not around,and why does it only flare at the mirror for a fraction of a second then move on. I considering getting a cave but i think the 2 1/2 centimeter holes will scratch MR. Bubbles.
And can someone help me, can you find a marble betta at walmart or petco i think their gorgeous

That's great for you Katmassive! Personally, my guy seems fine without a heater, but I do need to get a thermometer.

well my guy the stick on thermometer says 68 when i don't have my oscillating room heater on him so i think it might be best to get him one i live in New England its always very cold and he is more active when he is warm so i think it would be good to get a heater.

It is best.. exposure to cold water over a long period of time can cause lethargy/slow metabolism, lowered immune system, etc. He will appreciate a heater very much so :)
