I might add that it's a good idea to rehydrate anything freeze dried before feeding by soaking the food in a little tank water for approx. 10 minutes.

5. Freeze Dried (shrimp, krill, blood worms, daphnia)
These foods are great treats for bettas. Feed these sparingly. This is like fast food for bettas. These have low nutritional values, and should be fed on occasion (can replace a staple meal .. 1-2 times a week .. not recommended for every day) or supplemented with a staple food (half staple food half treat).

side note daphnia's are very good to regulate the digestive track for bettas .. acts as the equivalent of fiber for humans. they are little tiny eggs that look like powder. very hard to manage cus they seem to melt as soon as they touch the water, but very good treat for bettas.

Yeah they do hoard. I've learned to either spread the food, or feed in two areas :p but even my little little girl is showing colors :) so must be doing something right with her

oh!! .. i should also add that you can pre-soak in tank water first .. cus sometimes the pellets are too hard for ur betta to eat .. especially if he's sick =)

another addition

i've noticed NLS betta formula pellet size can vary (not all the pellets in the jar are the same uniform size) vs. other NLS formulas and also other brands .. if this is the case you can +1 pellet depending on your betta's size

My guy is about average size, and he eats New Life Spectrum. Those pellets are really tiny! How many should I feed him a day?
