Question What do you guys think about Aqueon Betta Food?

Hey everybody,

i was browsing this site, when i read about betta nutrition. I use Aqueon Betta Bellets, fed 3-4 a day (once a day) or 2 pellets (twice a day). He is fasted every Thursday, and gets a bloodworm or two every two weeks(too long?).

What do you guys think? Is this a good pelleted food and good feeding schedule?

Here is the link to the Aqueon food i use: http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...&lmdn=SHOP+FOR

UPDATE!!! Honeycomb's caudal fin is longer than it ever has been before! He is regaining pigmentation in the new clear fin growth! His pigmentation is turning from yellow to black (some patches and scales on fins and body). I am now noticing some BEAUTIFUL blue iridescence in his tail! I can't wait to see what color he ends up with! I have had him for 1 1/2 years :)

Mr. Puffles(moss ball) is also thriving and Honeycomb has gotten used to him!

Yah, i use it too, i have been for almost 2 years. my betta loves it, but i was just wondering if i should switch foods to BETTA BUFFET or HIKARI BIO GOLD BETTA FOOD if AQUEON does not have enough protein content or something?

I use it, but I'm pretty sure I'm done with it. It does have 38% protein, but it also has a LOT of soy and wheat ingredients. Bettas usually don't eat anything but meat, so it's better to have a food that's only meat.

Ok, then what do you recommend? Could i buy another food and then feed him half Aqueon pellets and half the other food? What type of food do you recommend?

From what I've heard, the best stuff is NLS betta formula. Also, some people like HBH betta pellets. I'm going to try and get either, but I'm hoping for NLS. What I'm probably going to do is use my old pellets for occasional shrimp treats and sink them. And I'm sure if you vary the pellets between new and old, your betta won't mind much.
