Would platys and/or harlequin rasboras eat the freeze dried brine shrimp/blood worms? Cause if i had to spend even more money on fish food, i think my dad would kill me :)

Sorry I'm not answering your question, but Your fish is really an eye catcher espeically if you went with the black and silver tank decorations like I believe you have from your picture. I'm excited to see pics of your tank when you finally settle Cosmo in a more permanent home. I've always wanted to do the Black/White color themes but I don't like fake plants :( just a personal preference. I wish aquatic plants came in those rainbow fake colors I always see at the store. Fish tanks would be way more fun then haha.

Yea, I am thinking about getting 1 or 2 live plants, but not sure what could work with my lighting... Right now I only have 2 decorations (The silver and black plant and his "betta bed") so I'll have to pick up a couple :) And yes, rainbow plants would be wayyy cool XD !!!!

Yes, platies and harlequin rasboras would eat any food you feed your betta. However, to be on the healthy side, you may want to switch to frozen brine shrimp and blodworms. Less chance of bloating, I hear.

Frozen, good. Freeze-dried is non-refrigerated and you can find it on the shelves. It's all dried up. Kinda like the dehydrated food astronauts eat. Now your dad won't freak about buying more fish food.

Cheap. I have a family friend who took disposable paper underwear on a long trip to Europe and he washed the paper underwear. Can you say ewwwwww? And before the days of DSL/cable internet, he'd save all those CD-ROMS with internet trials that you get in the mail and use them, switching to the next one when the trial offer ended. See? Major cheap.
