I am a brand new betta owner and have my lil guy getting acclimated to his new home. Hes in a baggie with the water hes been in for the past 2 days. The water temp was ambient at 68-69 degrees F. A 2 gallon hexagon tank with a small silent filter, HT10 submersable heater preset to 78 degrees F, LED day/night light, gravel, tiki statue a live plant, and magnetic thermometer.
He was a petco purchase and given to me as a gift. I purchased Hikari Betta Bio-Gold tiny pellets. My guy(no name yet) takes the pellets and chews them for a second then spits out most of it. Im told this can be normal when introducing a new food. Today I purchased Hikari Micro Wafers for small tropical fish. I fed him 3 pellets and devoured them. Ive read varying the diet is a good practice.
So my question is this....
Should I continue to introduce the Bio-Gold and see if he accepts it?
Are the Micro Wafers a suitable main food source?
Is teh Hikari brand a good choice?
I have read many positives about there products.
What do you experienced Betta keepers use?
Thank you for any and all advice
