In my sorority, I have six female bettas. They are too small yet to eat proper pellets so they are on MarineMaster micro pellets (teeny tiny little things). They share their tank with ten ember tetras. Now, my problem is, I feed the tetras Nutrafin micropellets.
The MM pellets are for carnivores (fish meal as first ingredient). My Nutrafin pellets are for omnivores like my little tetras.
At the moment I am feeding one pinch of each morning and night. It's really hard to work out a precise amount, but my bottom feeders get any food not eaten by the girls so it isn't going to waste. Is this ok, the two different species getting a wierd mix like this? I sometimes replace the Nutrafin with crushed guppy flakes, but since the bettas are the big bosses of the tank, they eat from the surface and the tetras have to wait for the flakes to sink (which they don't).
I'm just worried about all the fish not getting the right diet for them. How do you guys solve this?
