Smile What are some homemade treats?

What are some foods that I could feed my bettas as treats? I could get them some blood worms at wal mart. But I would like to know if I can give them anything ins small quantities as treats? Hard boiled eggs?

I like to spoil my babies, I just need to know what is safe for them!

Betta's will devour any fry they can get in their mouth. if it is alive and moving and small enough to fit, it is fair game to them!

I like MrVamp's idea, make a paste food. chop up blood worms, daphnia, grind up some betta pellets, black worms. just be sure if the food is love before you start that you rinse it well.

But the best treat in the betta's eyes is live food, be it worms (do not feed tubifex, thet are parasite carriers), live dahnia, or well rinsed brine shrimp. if it is alive and moving it is a TREAT!

Sea Monkeys are brine shrimp right? Could I just get some of them and then feed them to my bettas? I couldn't be able to feed them guppy fry! I love guppies!

They're not treats (well not to me). You can feed them as a treat or as regualr food.

I feed them everyother day. Inbetween feeding them I feed a pellet food. But I have hundreds so feed the way that's best for you.
