BettiBetta, I think I would be careful feeding them to your goldies - too much protien for them, I'm thinking.

Yeah! I am going to buy them Omega One goldfish food since they LOVED the betta pellets so much!
I do think the Omega One is an excellent product for bettas, I sadly could not get my picky eaters to try one!

That stinks that they're so picky. How many foods did you have to go through before you found one they'd eat?

I'm so glad mine's not a picky fish. I'd have to spank his bottom. Hehe.

Amour,
I tried about 6 different brands and even bloodworms! Those guyz wouldn't touch any of it! After a week I was almost in tears, I thought they were just going to die of starvation!! Then I tried the Aqueon pellets and bingo! Just like that they started eating!

Mary,
A wen is the spongy, hat on top of the orandas head!:)

Aren't grey goldfish malnurished because they don't have enough light or poor nutrition so their scales turn grey?
