I am currently at University and will be home for about 13 days. I think it would be best to leave my betta at school, because taking it on the ferry and car would put it into shock and be very stressful.
I have seven day food blocks for betta fish, but those won't last long enough. So, I went to Petco and they didn't have any bigger ones than that. My girlfriend and I found these other 10 day blocks though meant for normal pet fish. I don't have the exact brand name of the block, but it is not made for betta fish. The blocks are in my girlfriends room, but I was wondering, as a general rule of thumb, can you give betta fish food blocks that were not made specifically for bettas? If the specific brand matters, I will find out and report back tomorrow.
The lady working at Petco said it would be okay, but I just want to get multiple opinions.
Also, the food blocks are ten day ones...this means that they will not be fed for 2-3 days until I get back. Is this okay???
tl;dr: Can you feed betta fish food blocks that are not made specifically for them?
Thanks a lot,
