Yeah, they are freeze dried. They are meant for daily feeding. I only feed him about two a day though. Should I be feeding less? And is it best to fast them one day a week?

I was thinking that it was a digestive problem last night, because the "tumor" was gradually growing off the betta (lol), and I checked this morning to find it gone.

You will have to excuse my "noob-ishness" about betta anatomy, I am fairly new to them.

Freeze dried isn't that great of a staple. Many here just feed them as weekly snacks. they really don't have anything nutritious in them(i've heard it all vanishes during the freeze-drying), so they're kinda like potato chips for fish. Pellets are better for daily feeding, and flakes are okay, too.

oh, it's fine! alot of betta owners are shocked the first time they see a betta poo! they're not like goldfish, who poo all the time. lol

Did you not say it here that you feed the fish 2 worms a day?! Please kindly reread your post.

I apologize if my post was not coddling enough. Also, it is really mature of you to call me names. I will try to remember not to post in any of your future threads. Thank you!

Peace out!

There are more types of worms than live blood worms. And I don't recall calling you any names, would you like to quote where I did?
