A few weeks back, I've bought a Betta and I fed him only Hikari Bio-Gold Pellets everyday. The shop that sell the Betta, used to feed tubifex worms to them. In fact, they feed almost every fish with tubifex worms. My betta was very active and likes to flare at my other fish, when I bought him. But as I feed the pellets, now he is not active like before and when he flares for like a minute or 2 his colours get dull and he stops flaring! Then the colours come back a few minutes later, this is really weird!
I don't know what's wrong.
Now I'm feeding him Frozen bloodworms and Hikari Pellets. I did research and found that, it's best if I feed a variety of foods to my betta, frozen bloodworms are a good protein source but they lack other minerals. So I'm using Hikari Pellets to help my betta get those vitamins/minerals. I want to make my betta active again and don't want him to get dull and lose his colours when flaring
. So I'm thinking if I should buy tubifex worms, However, I heard quite a number of people in the internet saying, tubifex worms can cause diseases and they are dirty, but Bettas love them!
Should I stick to feeding bloodworms and Hikari Pellets or should I try getting tubifex worms for my betta?
