Anything small and soft. I sometimes feed mine:
- ant/termite eggs (here, they're sold at bird markets)
- Minced shrimp (salt or fresh water)
- small earth worms
- what ever tiny critters that get into or nest in my tubs.
- And the common stuff, like ML, daphnia, FBW (and live ones too)
Oh, there's ..... water mite (?) the round or oval gray ones - bettas don't eat them. So don't bother with them. The oval ones are OK for your "cleaner" in fry tanks but the round ones will attack even adults when there's no food.
