No. They aren't meant to digest meat.

No, they definitely do not eat raw chicken meat. Ever. In the wild, they eat bugs, not other critters. Your betta wont digest the salmon at all and it will create all sorts of problems inside him. Not to mention it's can't be good to eat another fish o.O

"cooked unseasoned pulverized chicken." It would take a betta a long time to digest that, their stomachs arent made for those kinds of foods. Even beef heart, which some try to feed, can only be digested in very high temps.

I really don't think salmon is a good idea. Why risk your bettas health because you selfishly wanted to feed it something it wasnt made to digest? Not trying to be mean at all here, just realistic. ^^'

Erm... my fish really likes it. The only reason I gave it to him was because I was getting desperate, he hated the betta pellets I got him and hadn't eaten much at all since he arrived, and was lying on his side looking like "I'm dyyyiiinnggggg"
