To start off, there seem to be NO pet stores with fish supplies near me, the closet being 40 minutes away or something, and my mom doesn't want to go ALL the way to the city just so I can get stuff for my baby, Valentino.
I want to get him live food, I was thinking brine shrimp, but Wal-Mart clearly doesn't sell it (if they do, then I sure haven't seen it).
Would it be alright if I bought some eggs off the internet? I've got a betta care book that explains how to raise the shrimp.
Is there maybe another live food that would be fairly easy to come across out here in the "boondocks"?
I hear mosquito larva are okay to feed to bettas, is this true? If so, that'd be great, my grandmothers bird feeders get full of them in the summer.
I have wondered, could I use any live worms from the hunting section in wal-mart? Does anyone do this? I haven't gone to that section to see what they have yet.
Oh, and something not about worms... I live near a lake, and I've been seeing alot of driftwood from the dam. I want to go down there and find a small piece to replace one of the plants in Valentino's tank. Would I need to do anything to sanitize the driftwood?
Valentino and I appreciate your help! :)
