They have great big cans of bloodworms at my Petsmart. I had to get a little bottle at another fish store. My bettas couldn't eat all those bloodworms in a great big can! It would last for years.

Yeah they have a small container at Walmart for like 2-3 dollars, I've had that since may and it's barely a quarter gone.

I think my Petsmart has 3 or 4 different brands of bloodworms not to mention different size containers. Plus they have fd brinesrhimp and fd tubifex worms.

Okay so today i tried out giving him a tiny bit of freeze dried tubifex and he tried to eat it then spit it out and repeated until i finally netted the food out. So i think until i get bbloodworms midnight wont get to have a weekly treat but on the bright side he LOVES pellets! lol. By the way... BUBBLENEST action!!! Or at least i think. It looks like a small line of bubbles against the glass in the middle front of the tank! It wasnt there before is it a bubblenest?

You know what Lulu loved? Those live ghost shrimp- I've never seen a fish freak out with happiness like that- she was swimming in circles and stuff. Then she tore them to pieces one at a time and ate them.

You can buy the frozen blodoworms at petco.I cut a cube into three.Store the two pieces for the coming days.Then disolve the one piece in some water.I use tweezers to feed the bloodworms in the am.I always heard never to feed freeze dried foods to bettas it could cause constipation.mine get the frozen in the a.m and pellets in the p.m.Once a week, I fast them, or give them a tiny piece of an inside of a pea.

They should make like- a tiny reverse lobster trap- so you can put live shrimp in there and they won't all be eaten at once. Do they make something like that? If they don't it's my idea! No stealing of my ideas!
lol

Yes, the bubbles, if they stay put and aren't just from the filter, is a bubblenest.
