InsideTheBurg: Thankyou for the welcome, you all are such wonderful people, took me a while to get over his colour myself hehe, i was really lucky to recieve him as a gift, he is a beautiful guy indeed but the best part is that look he gives me when i try to feed him with anything else other than his normal diet, its kind of like a stare..priceless..will try and post a shot of that if possible..

OOOH! he's so pretty! i didn't know you could feed them mosquito larvae, where do you get the ones that you feed him?
sunkissedinCA: Thanks, glad you find him pretty, as for your question, you can feed mosquito larvae to your betta, its one among the natural diet of the betta fish in the wild and supposed to be high in protein, its also good to maintain a balanced diet alongside, so feed him with freeze dried food too, keeps him healthy and active..I have a small tub setup at the back of my house which is filled with sand, water and plants, any adult female mosquitoes passing by lay their eggs in this water and the rest is history..but you'll have to keep track of this tub from time to time or else you will have a bigger problem in your hands dealing with the mosquitoes in your house..
