A nice menu for my Betta

I was hoping you all could share some food your Bettas injoy so i can add some things to my list just to keep it fresh and new for Bugsy. I have the old pellets and just started messing with dryed meal worms. Was looking at some frozen stuff but i was not to sure. Thanks every body.

I give my guys some freeze dried bloodworms once a week and they really seem to enjoy them. :)

Good job! Freeze-dried bloodworms are bad for your betta if you feed it to them more than 2 or 3 times max per week.

My betta loves BettaMin, TetraColor, Bloodworms (once weekly), HBH flake frenzy.

My betta hates pellets. He used to try to eat them, but even soaked, he can't "chew" them. He is a big VT too.

Bloodworms or brine shrimp should be used as a weekly snack (less than 10 worms preferably) as they're not as nutritious as pellets or flakes. If you them too much of the snack, the bettas may become picky eaters and only eat the bloodworms or brine shrimp.

I have two different types of pellets (one kind is huuge so I have to crush it before feeding), and alternate between those and flakes.
Also, bloodworms once a week

Omega One Pellets as a staple (3 pellets once a day) or old formula Hikari, supplimented with frozen bloodworms, daphnia, krill and brineshrimp. Occasionally (if I can get it) a live culture of blackworms; and I might try some live brineshrimp for the heck of it. VERY RARELY cooked plain cocktail shrimp or chicken. Peas every Friday and then fast for Saturday.

Is it a good idea to fast once a week and what are the benefits to doing so.
