>_> Mostly they're freeze dried.. They only get live ones sometimes because Zomg and Azure need them right now with all the immune system building and parasite removing, they and the girls get the left overs.. Purely circumstantial

Suuure, that's all it is. It's not the collective force of 8 bettas doing the wiggle dance and giving you the "feed me" eye?

Aww, they're happy with freeze dried I just thought this is healthier sometimes.. I'm trying to get Zomg to eat some processed food too so he can get used to it...

Btw see, see how I hijack my own threads XD

Hehe. I'm going to have to feed Crichton frozen and freeze-dried bloodworms, he won't even look at pellets or flakes. Literally won't look, he turns and swims the other way.

Yup, I hate that! None of my bozos will touch pellets! They give me the look.. You know the one where they're saying, you expect me to eat this swill?? In a way I don't mind because the pellets here aren't very nutritious anyway... The worms are probably better :P
At least you get frozen ones! I have only freeze dried and *shudder* live!

Yeah, that's true. Except the irony is there are people over here saying, "Where the heck can I find live bloodworms, all we have are freeze-dried!"

Lol! Yeah, I've noticed! Live are pretty popular here, I guess it must be because they catch them in the wild, in rivers and stuff, and local sellers sell them, its not a company distributing them.. I have to clean mine like crazy under the tap to get out the leaves and gunk XP
Sometimes if the bettas are lucky, there will be some mosquito larvae in there too :D

I've been meaning to set up a bucket to culture mosquito larvae but I'm afraid I won't use them up fast enough and I'll get mosquitoes. We still have the West Nile Virus here so people get panicked about mosquitoes. And I actually live maybe two miles from our local Mosquito control center.

That sounds scary! I wouldn't culture the larvae, we have so many mosquitoes anyway, especially this time of year, theres a lot of malaria going around... They sometimes lay eggs in my tanks but the fish take care of them :).. Maybe you should try bloodworms? The midge fly doesn't bite.. You can buy the larva once and then have the flies reproduce all the time...

Might be worth thinking about. I want to breed bettas someday so I'll need some live food to condition them. But the day I breed bettas is a long ways off. Need more space. Although I really want to breed Sherman and Plum just so I have some of Sherman's progeny after he's gone. Hmmm.
