Red face How can I boost my betta's immune system?

Are there any vitamins I can add to the water? Special foods? I know the temp should be at around 80 degrees. Thanks

You can feed your betta pellets/frozen foods (frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, daphnia) that have a lot of protein in them since bettas are carnivores. Nutrition is very important. Also, regular water changes work wonders for boosting the health of your betta. If you want to add anything to the water, black water extract or indian almond leaves are very good as they mimic the natural aquatic environment of your fish. You can usually find black water extract at your local fish store.
