Calling OFL... He'll eat now... if it's shrimp!

So, I decided to try feeding Miki some shrimp. Waddaya know, he loves it! Is it ok to feed him this every day? I think I remember seeing something about how OldFishLady would smash up shrimp and garlic, and something else to feed her fish. Since a little shrimp goes a long way, it really wouldn't be that expensive. Thoughts?

I thought it was bad to not give some pellets because they contain other neccessary nutrients...

Maybe you could slowely adjust him to pellets? Like crushing them into the shrimp and adding more and more pellets and less and less shrimp to the mix until it's all pellets, then you can try feeding shrimp a few times a week?

And hooray! He's finally eating!

I soaked the pellets in shrimp juice... he still won't eat them. Besides, I found the thread where OFL said she makes homemade food of shrimp, fresh garlic, and blanched spinach, all smashed and mixed together. So I'll be doing that.

Oh, silly boy. Some bettas are total pigs, but others seem to be so picky!

Anyway, I think making your own betta food like OFL is a great idea! If he accepts it, why not? And you know what goes into it, so you have more control over what you feed him.
