Is this okay for a betta

Is this food okay for a Betta, I am trying to a variables to my bettas diet, so far I am using 2 types of pellets, frozen brine shrimp and live mosquito larvae, so I am hoping that this will not cause anything bad to them. I heard that if you vary a betta's diet they will be happier and healthier than if you just feed pellets

Yea its fine. Try freeze dried bloodworms when you can, they are the most sold for bettas and the most liked too haha.

Hi fishyfriend,

You will want to feed your Betta a staple diet of pellets. FD food is more of a once a week treat.

Betta Pellet category from that link you provided:
http://www.thatpetplace.com/pet/cat/...7/category.web

I recommend getting Hikari Bio Gold:

2-3 in the morning, and another 2-3 in the evening should be more than enough :)

Oops! *durp* Misread that totally.

Should be fine - as Fieldz said, blood worms are their favourite :)

I'm not sure gammarus is ok... And baby gammarus. I'd say no, to stay on the safe side.

I've got those, my betta's wont touch them. They're kind of on large size too about the size of adult ghost shrimp. These are aimed more at larger fish.
