ooo. Where'd you get those?
Yeah, my bettas jump 3 inches when i shake the NLS can in front of their tank to let them know it's time to eat.
NLS is expensive but lasts a long time :)

I think it was from Drs. Foster and Smith. But LFS might have it, too. They go as crazy for these as they do frozen bloodworms!

Thanks. I spoil my bettas with the best. Only high quality for my boys.
I just wish that bettas all over could have nice food instead of the plant based stuff.

Q: are frozen bloodworms messy? And do they cause bloat like brine shrimp?
Thanks

Frozen bloodworms aren't generally that messy and depending on the size, be careful not to overfeed.

Bettas and fish in general just gobble them up, so really be wary when feeding, I had experience that my fish would just eat and eat and their stomach would literally bulge out, then I would have to fast them for a day or two.

Thanks Micho :)
Isn't it true that bettas will eat til their deaths? Another reason why bettas die every day because of misleading info....
Customer: how much should i fed him/her?
Employee: oh, just until they stop eating
...... sigh
