Exclamation Betta Food Question. Fast Reply Please?

Hi, I have a question of what food would be better for my betta.

#1
Min Crude Protein 41%
Whole Salmon, Halibut, Black Cod, Whole Herring, Whole Shrimp, Whole Krill.

#2
Min Crude Protein 42%
Whole Fish meal ( Whole herring and other mixed fish), whole wheat flour, soybean meal, whole dried krill.

#3
Min Crude Protein 44%
Fish Meal, Fish Oil, Dried Yeast, Corn Starch, Shrimp Meal.

Im thinking #1 would be better, but Im not sure. These are the only 3 foods that I have and wont be able to purchase any more soon so I want to know which is the best. Thank You!

Also, anyone had luck with otocinclus with betta fish?

I'd say #1, unless it was packed with a ridiculous amount of fillers or additives further down the ingredient list. It sounds like a winner though.

Out of curiosity - what brand is that?

I use #1
I have no concerns with using #2
#3 should be tarred and feathered and run out of town (although I have no problems with their community foods).

Keep in mind that Betta are carnivores, so anything formulated for goldfish would *not* be ideal as they are omnivores.

Also, with flakes, be very, VERY careful not to overfeed. We generally recommend pellets (Omega One Betta Pellets or New Life Spectrum pellets). If flakes are all you can get though, #1 still looks like a good option. It's ingredients are very promising.

I'd grab the "Super Color" version of #1 if they have it, red jar not the yellow

Ok thanks for the responses. While fishing through my stuff I found a new bottle of Aqueon Betta Pellets, would this be better that the Omega One flakes? Also I have been feeding my Betta the goldfish food for a week now, will be get sick? He is also currently fighting fin rot.

Eh - aqueon is a step down nutrition-wise from the Omega One flakes you have. They aren't terrible, but they aren't awesome either. So long as you don't overfeed I'd stick with the flakes. He won't need much though.

For your guy - make sure he's pooping. If you have any concerns that he might be constipated I'd fast him for 3 days or so before moving to the better flakes.

Yeah, that can be a symptom. Bloating would be another. Can you post a picture?
