I have been keeping bettas for a couple of years now and my oldest is 22 months & second oldest is 20 months. I THOUGHT I was feeding a pretty good diet till I read how many people only feed 2 - 4 pellets a day.
All of my food is high quality - I REFUSE to feed ANY of my fish (bettas & non-bettas) any food that has "Fish Meal" as a first igredient!!!
Anyhoo, this is my feeding scheduale:
Mon. - 5/6 Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets
Tues. - Sm. pinch of Brine Shrimp Plus Flakes by Ocean Nutrition
Wed. - 5/6 New Life Spectrum Pellets
Thurs. - Brine Shimp Plus Flakes
Fri. - 5/6 Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets
Sat. - 3/4 Omega One Freeze Dried Blood Worms
Sun. - Fast
The freeze dried blood worms are actually a new addition in the past month because I had read good things about them. However, I have read on here that the freeze dried foods AREN'T any good!!!
Two of my 6 males are in Eclipse 3 tanks, 2 are in 5 gal. tanks & two are in 10 gal. tanks (everybody has their own tank - none of the tanks are divided). Everybody gets 50% partial water changes with gravel vac once a week. All tanks are heated, filtered & have a combination of live & silk plants.
So, AM I overfeeding????
