Hello everyone. I've been lurking occasionally on this forum since December, but didn't "adopt" a betta into the family until last weekend. His name is Neptune (thus the name Neptune's mom). Actually, I wasn't planning on a new addition at all. I started frequenting the forums just to look at the pictures of the beautiful bettas people have. But, when an animal chooses you... you go with it.
So, while I have been reading the forum for some time, I feel woefully unprepared for my new little guy. His tank is only 2.5 gallons (although I did buy a 10 gallon today and plan on upgrading his home within the next few days). He doesn't have a heater (I decided to wait until I upgraded him to worry about the heater). I don't have a filter (again, waiting until the upgrade). He does have a nice real plant, and a soft silk plant to hide in, along with a rock cave he never seems to go into.
He is a very active little guy, and he likes to attack his reflection in the glass (should I be worried about that?).
So, to my main question, what do you feed your bettas? I've been feeding TopFin Color Enhancing pellets. I've read people talk about mixing in treats, how often do you do that? What do you give as treats?
