Your Betta's Diet Plan

I'm just curious to know what other peoples diet plans are for their bettas? I have a set schedule for how all my bettas get food.

I only feed them once a day, with the exceptions of Saturdays and Sundays.
Two days of the week, I give them pellets, and two other days I give the granules. They seem to love both.
One day a week I give them Frozen Brine Shrimp as a "good boys treat". And another day I will give them Frozen bloodworms (which they go nuts for, and usually attack me as I'm putting it in their tanks )
Saturdays is the day they go without food. And on Sundays they get Granules, but I also feed them a pee in the morning.

I wouldn't feed peas regularly... bettas can't digest them because they're not meant for veggies (being carnivores and all) and they're typically only used to help fix bloat issues, and even that is debated, if you have issues with bloat with your bettas, try feeding some daphnia instead :]

Back on topic, I feed my guys 2-3 pellets twice a day, fasting them one day out of the week. I hope to start feeding them some frozen foods but for now they get FD blood worms as treats

Interesting, someone told me it's good to feed them the pea after a day of fasting, just to help clean out their system?

Should not be a regular thing though, it is used more so when they suffer from bloat and/or are sick. I feed my fish a varied diet, from white worms/grindal worms to golden pearls and artison's betta pro. Varied depending on size/age.

I feed mine 3 pellets 2x per day on weekdays, 1x/day weekends.
1 or 2 times a week I'll give them frozen bloodworms as a treat

Only if one of them gets bloated from me accidently feeding to much do I fast them.

I feed my wilds a staple diet of live blackworms supplemented with live white worms, frozen brine shrimp, frozen bloodworms and live grindal worms. Some of them will take pellets very grudgingly so they get pellets once in a while.

My splendens get fed 4-5 NLS pellets once a day but they also get treats of live blackworms and frozen foods every so often.

I don't really have a strict schedule. Occasionally I will miss a day or two because I forget or get busy. Only fish that get fed two to three times a day are the fry and juveniles I am growing out.

I feed Algernon about 2-3 freeze-dried bloodworms in the morning and about 4 micropellets before bed. I've had him for a month and this seems to be working fine for me.

I feed 4 pellets every other day, with FD bloodworms once a week. My girls get greedy though and try to munch on the snails. :u
