Feedin schedule

I now have freeze dried daphnia, bloodworms and brine shrimp. I feed pellets as my bettas' staple diet.Could I feed all three of these once a week or would it be too much protien? I'd like to have all 3 in their diet but need a good feeding schedule.

That may be what I'll have to do. Feed a different one each week.

I feed mine Hikari Betta Bio-Gold Pellets as a staple, 3 pellets in the am & 2 pellets in the pm. I feed each a blood worm instead of the pellets one day a week in the am. I feed daphnia once a week in the pm. Knock wood, both my guys look & act great.

I feed bettamin flakes, frozen daphnia, brine shrimp, and bloodworms. I feed each of the frozen foods once a week and all my fish are healthy and happy. I usually feed the daphnia after a fast which helps clean them out. With my rescue betta Prof. Lupin I fed him flakes in the morning and a different frozen food each night. He's real active so it wasn't too rich for him and he achieved record fin growth! I wouldn't feed my old guy that much though, just because he isn't nearly that active.

I chose Sunday as my fasting day and I'll feed the daphnia on monday. So I could feed daphnia once a week and either the brine shrimp or bloodworms in place of the pellets once a week?

Yes, you can. Kim's feeding protocol is what I would follow once your guy is back on track. Bettas are carnivores and protien in their diet is required. It's what'll keep them healthy and looking their best.
How's he doing today??

He's been swimming around and going from top to bottom and back alright.He's eating the daphnia and I gave some to the others this morning. I feel like they got their vitamin pill for the day, since it's vitamin enriched. lol
