I've been feeding mine frozen brine shrimp and crushed flakes. He won't seem to eat any pellets I've tried. My petsmart didn't have frozen bloodworms, unless they had another name and i didn't see them, but I want to get those too.
I have the hikari first bites, but they're so small, is it kind of pointless to feed him those at this point? And how many times a day is everyone feeding their babies? I've been feeding 3x/day, is that good?
It is fun to see them grow, just in a week i see such a difference. I can't wait to see if hes a male or female and what kind of betta. When we transferred him to the 5.5 gallon my almost 3 year old said "he's gonna grow up in there!" She loves him, she kisses the tank and talks to him. :)
