Question Food

Ive been reading various things about feeding bettas....mine love the omega one pellets. I also have freeze dried bloodworms and freeze dried brine shrimp......but ive read greatly differing opinions about frozen vs live vs freeze dried and just want to know some opiniins about it. Id prefer to stick with the pellets and freeze dried for ease of use and storage, but i don't want to be harming my bettas either. Thanks!

Frozen is okay but it has to be soaked in water. I have been looking for my freeze dried brine shrimp.

New Life Spectrum Pellets & Omega One Pellets are the two most highly regarded food brands on this forum. As far as freeze-dried go they are more like a small treat you'd give every once in a while. Freeze-dried can cause blockage if fed in large quantities, or if fed frequently.

Frozen blood-worms/brine shrimp hold a lot more nutrional value compared to freeze-dried and are much healthier. I personally don't have any frozen foods at the moment, but I am planning to get some to start feeding my bettas!

So it sounds like the pellets should cover the needed nutrition and then just use the rest of the foods as treats?

High Quality Pellets should be the staple part in their diet. The key in a great diet is variety. Freeze Dried, Frozen, Live, Flakes... There are a ton of foods you should try to feed your Betta. Try to feed your Betta at least 3 different kinds of foods. They can actually get bored of their food. Talk about picky... :l

I alternate Atisons Betta Pro with frozen/brine shrimp/ blood worms, and live blood worms.

That's what I do except change "daphnia" to "frozen brine shrimp".
