Are these ok to use? I have to go away for the weekend.. Just one night, two days.. I bought the fish feeder blocks.. Do these actually work ok, or should I find someone who can come take care of my guys while im gone? They just look weird to me.. They are white and dont appear to look anything like their food! I dont get how this is supposed to feed them.
I've never used one, but my teacher does. Her fish's waters always filthy after. I don't recommend them, plus, as you said they look nothing like the pellets. I also suspect they give them to other tropical fish like guppies and platys, who have different nutritional needs. Basically, it won't hurt him to fast. :)
As everyone else said, it's not advised. Bettas can live for up to three weeks without eating (though it's definitely not advised to let them go that long), so 2 days is nothing. Whenever I go on weeklong vacations they're completely fine without eating, if a bit irritable when I return. Anyways, bettas are advised to be fasted once a week normally, so a 2 days and 1 night is nothing.
really? fasting for a week is advised? how often?
the blocks i got are specifically for Bettas. and it says its a "non-cloudy" block.. which i guess means, it wont cloud the water, but i guess i would rather not use them.. especially if two days is nothing for them.
