Treats??

I bought some dried bloodworms...Don gave them the snub. Can someone else recommend a treat he might like?

Hello, I would give the dried bloodworms a pass. They are notorious for causing digestive problems and constipation in bettas. Some people will soak the worms in a little tank water for about 10 min. I feed my bettas frozen bloodworms,mysis shrimp,tubifex worms. They sell flightless fruit flies in a vial at pet stores, shake a few on the sponge plug and shake over the tank.

Just scrape a tiny bit off the cube then freeze the rest. Don't thaw and refreeze.

I cut the cube into bits and give everyone a slice! they know that the spoons mean treat day, kaida literally climbs onto the spoon to get a mouthful before it is even in the tank (one day I'll get a shot of it...I can never hold all the things at once) and kenji spends the next three days solid searching the gravel just in case

Beef heat is probably not a good idea. The proteins and lipids are mammalian not piscean, crustacean or insect, and the molecules are huge by comparison.

While they may enjoy treats, they are not necessary to a complete, healthy diet. NLS or Omega One pellets are all the variety they need.

I use an eyedropper after I defrost a tiny bit off the cube. I have enuf for 3 days and keep in a tiny pill box with lid in the fridge. Kwei will actually try to suck them out of the dropper. I dispose after the 3rd day, but I scrape off very little at one time. Stuff is cheap and will last forever it seems like. I also use a couple NLS pellets every day. Nothing hits the bottom of the tank.
