Question Betta food

I feed my betta pellets on a daily bases, but every once in awhile I give him a pea, or some lettice which he loves, I was wondering if there is anything else I can use to very his diet... like bloodworms? What do you feed ur betta to keep them nice and healthy?thanks!

You can feed them freeze dried or frozen blood worms, brine shrimp and daphnia. I've got mine on a feeding schedule where I include all those in their diet.If you feed freeze dried, rehydrate it for a few minutes before feeding, to prevent digestive problems and constipation. :Hope this helps. :)

No peas or lettuce! I cannot stress that enough. Bettas are CARNIVOIRES. They do not digest vegetable matter well and it can ruin their digestive track. They shouldn't even be used to cure bloating.

For bloating and constipation, its best to feed dapnia because its more natural since bettas are carnivorous.

You should be able to get both the freeze dried and frozen at the petstore. My Petsmart only had the frozen daphnia and I've heard it can be rather messy so I opted for the freeze dried. If you get freeze dried, rehydrate it before feeding. I think your guppies will eat it, too.
