I like to mass feed live mosquito larva to condition, however, since they are seasonal in my area. I feed my homemade food year around to keep them in condition and to grow out fry when they are about 4-6 weeks of age-along with live food of course....

Since you should only use human grade food items to start....you can saute it and put it on pasta...yumm and you can have lunch with your Betta...laffs......

When I make it...it varies each time...depending on what I have since I grow my own spinach and garlic...plus garlic cloves can vary in size as can the spinach leaves...lol.....
Generally..
Shrimp- 1 large frozen or steamed (no added salt or other additives) and I smash this up with the side of a knife....
Garlic-I use 3-5 cloves depending on the size...I crush in a garlic press...roughly half the amount of the shrimp
Spinach-4-6 leaves..blanched-roughly equal amount of the garlic

I blanch the spinach and while still hot I smash it with the garlic and add the shrimp and smash it all together with the side of my knife on a cutting board....it should look green...a green garlicky shrimpy paste

I then feed some and then place the rest in a zip-lock and press out flat and freeze-Then break off what I need each day to feed....I use the side of my knife and work it and this will thaw it enough to feed......

You are what you eat....the spinach is the greens that are inside the food Bettas eat...like being gut loaded....shrimp the protein and long term (6 weeks+) fresh raw garlic can help with parasites, help build a strong immune response among other things....

I feed this food twice daily to all fish and inverts...I have also used raw fish filet, red worms in place of shrimp and one day I plan to use the meat from common snail...but haven't got around to doing it...lol..

I always condition with live food. Otherwise I use Freeze dried bloodworms/blackworms.

>put fish in tank (w/ almond leaf)
>clean tank everyday
>feed bomb diggity food like quality pellets and frozen bloodworms
>give those fishes some live food... fishes love live food
>keep up for two weeks
>profit

So yeah despite the chan format there that's seriously what I do and it works for me. I've never made my own food. But as you go on you learn what works best. OFL posted a neat recipe.

I use grade C almond leaf because it's cheaper.
