I remember reading somewhere on this forums that preferable protein level would be anything higher than 40 or 43% ( I can't remember which), and yes, there are a lot of so-called Betta pellets which only have 30%-39%. From the replies, it seems that 50% is the highest we can find in pellets or granules. I do supplement them with dried bloodworms which have a 60% protein content, but then again some on these forums say that freeze dried bloodworms should only be given as a treat once a week because they're like MacDonalds for fish.
So meh.. I don't know who to listen to anymore. In order for them to have more protein and they're pretty active creatures anyway, I have resorted to bloodworms 3 times a week, but only 1 each time.
