Do Bettas like Beef Heart?

Why do people feed Betta beef heart? Is it good for them? Is it really beef?

I've killed 3 bettas so far feeding beefheart(fed over 200 bettas with it). I think it choked them to their death. Immediately after they ate it, a minute later they started swimming like crazy! and laid on their side. 30 minutes later, dead. I don't know if it was the beef heart, beef heart not trimmed well from the fat, or suffocation. Make sure to grind well if you use it. And use it at your own risk. :)

P.S. I use it because it's affordable and stated to increase betta growth by other betta hobbiest who use it. I don't know if it's good for them or not. And yes, it's the heart from a cow.

Beef hearts are messy. I feed my discus this. I would never feed my betta it because it is too messy. It is far from a natural food for them or any fish.

It's cheap and helps fish grow quickly because it is high in protein. Lots of people use beef hearts to power feed young fish. This power feeding is feed Lots and lots of rich high in protein food for the fish grow big fast.

Probably still a bit messy but probably easier to deal with freeze dried beef heart dog treats puffs crushed up into small flakes.
