I know, I mean putting an extra fast in there, if you wanted.

I still dont recommend giving the fish peas. Unless theyre hugely bloated and really, truly need that pea to get their business done, I dont recommend.

I haven't come across any issues with the peas yet, and I've discovered they do help alot with avoiding a bloated belly. But that's just my opinion. :)

Monday: Fast, excluding Tyson who is recovering from starvation and ammonia burns - and Stirling, who's a growing baby. 8 NLS GROW pellets in the morning or frozen bloodworms. If bloodworms, I move the fasting one day ahead to not waste bloodworms.
Tuesday: Three NLS or Omega One pellets in the evening.
Wednesday: Frozen foods. Glassworms or bloodworms in the morning, brineshrimp at night.
Thursday: Same as Tuesday.
Friday: Frozen bloodworms, or glassworms in morning. NLS or Omega One at night.
Saturday: Same as Thursday.
Subday: Frozen brine shrimp in morning.

Ive tried something new that they love.
The other night we had salmon and I cut the extra raw salmon off and put it in a bag and froze it, for my catfish initially.
Ok, so my betta girls love it!!!

I chop it reallyfine then let it soften, and I have super worms for my frog, but I have to cut them in half because they're too big, but I squish the cuts out and they love that too.

But, is that alright for them? they seem to love it<3

I have to watch one of my bettas really close because he is constipation prone, so some days he might get one pellet or nothing at dinner, just to make sure he flushes his system.

Something new that I have just tried is Mosquito Larvae aka Glass worms. They love them, I know that people have live cultures of glass worms but I am not into the live thing and bought these frozen in cubes. It adds a nice variety to their diet.

Say anyone ever try Mysis Shrimp?

i have no system lol when i think of it i feed them blood worms or brine shrip frozen and freeze dried blood worms but my bettas are picky, i have two types of pellets, one from aqueon, they are small enough for my girls, and then tetra mini pellets which are huge compared to the other ones, and i have bettamin flakes. so basically my girls and my vt huey get the aqueon pellets the girls get just a pinch because well if there isnt alil more than enough fighting occus then my one crown tail hercules gets a pinch of flakes, he doesnt like pellets and then my larger ct fred and my dragon hmpk norbert get the bigger pellets about 2-3 oh huey gets maybe 5 pellets, and if he doesnt see them before they fall i give him freeze dried blood worms because i know he will eat those but i only give a lil, some times ill give them blood worms every other day, and only that for the day the girls each get 1 or 2 the males 2 or 3 sometimes i give them blood worms freeze dried, havent tried the shrimp for a bit some didnt care for it when i first bought it. thats about it, i do fast them depending on what they are eating at the time, with starting a new job last week it has just been pellets, in a nut shell i feed everything but live food and its random when they get what
