Sick?

OK, one last one here, a couple of concerns...

We recently introduced bloodworms into Tiepolos diet, and his poo is much lighter (a shade below white, with brown flecks). Could this be an infection, or perhaps a result of the new food?

Signed,

How much are you feeding him? Bloodworms should only be fed as a once or twice a week treat.

Well, he usually gets pellets but he looked soooooo hungry and we gave him maybe a few too many blood worms then.
He's doing much better and I haven't seen that white stuff again. Will go back to pellets diet , and only very seldom 1 or 2 tiny freeze dried blood worms.

They will do the hungry dance ALL day. Don't believe it! I've never known a fish to eat themselves into oblivion like bettas do. They're their own worst enemy!

Yep, your betta would eat the whole container of bloodworms if you'd let him. They are big piggies.
