  1. Blood Worms - How many? How often? Please Help

    Betta Fish Care
    I just have the one Betta. I broke off a piece of frozen Blood Worms but this still seems like too much. I also read online that you shouldn't give them Blood worms very often. Is that true? I don't want to hurt my baby.
  2. Bloodworms turning yellow- is it safe?

    Betta Fish Care
    So I've been feeding my boy frozen blood worms. But only like 1-2 pieces a day since he's overcoming chronic over feeding from the pet store (he has a little bit of a bloated belly, but doing better). So what I usually do is use room temp conditioned water in a shot glass, scrape off a small...

He's the only non-bottom feeder in my tank. He's sharing home with 7 cory fish and a bunch of cherry shrimps (I got...
  4. Betta Diet Help?

    Betta Fish Care
    My betta Sunny started tail-biting over the weekend while I was gone, so I did my water changes, rearranged some things, and added a silk plant. I also decided to start feeding him blood worms, in the hopes it'll make him happier and less stressed (no tail-biting), and overall healthier. So my...

  6. How many blood worms do I feed my betta?

    Betta Fish Care
    Hey! So I bought blood worms recently and I have literally no idea how many to give to my betta fish when I feed him. They're frozen in little cubes and I've been able to find out HOW to feed them, just not how MANY. And if I have defrosted leftovers, how to keep them and for how long. Thank you!
  7. Feeding

    Betta Fish Care
    I'm reading a lot of similar and different things about feeding. It seems it's a good idea to fast your betta one day a week and to feed him something different than his normal food – like blood worms – one day a week. But on the other 5 days, I'm not sure if I should be feeding once a day or...
  8. Feeding Schedule questions

    Betta Fish Care
    So I have Omega One pellets and freeze dried bloodworms for Balthazar, and I was wondering what the best feeding schedule would be for him? I usually feed him twice a day, 2-3 pellets. How often should I give him the bloodworms? And how many is a reasonable amount for one feeding?
  9. My Betta Only Eats Bloodworms

    Betta Fish Care
    I got a Betta fish 2 days ago, and he just WONT eat the regular fishfood. I've had betta fish before when I was younger, but none of them ever had any issues with pellets. I bought both pellets & flakes just in case if my fish had a preference between the two but I tried both and he just watched...

  11. How much Bloodworms do I feed?

    Betta Fish Care
    I bought some Bloodworms today to treat by little babies ~<3 It was the Hikari type so they were dicvded into cells. Stupid me though that each cell would be enough for one fish and opened four of them. I quickly realised that between the four Betta I couldn't even finish 1 cell 0.0. Actually...
  12. Help With My Betta's Diet

    Betta Fish Care
    I bought Aliquis at a local pet store that I will likely never buy a fish from ever again. The male bettas were all kept in dirty little cups right next to each other. Everyone was dull and listless, fins drooping and hardly moving :cry:. Probably exhausted from flaring at each other and living...
  13. Betta Foods

    Betta Fish Care
    Recently I got my betta and noticed that he eats a pellet, tries to swallow, spits it back out, and repeat. At times when I'm changing his water, I found his spitted pellets buried in the gravel and I'm worrying if he will starve... For his pellets, which is the Aqua Culture brand, I cut them...
  14. Blood Worms Alone?

    Betta Fish Care
    My betta, Shamus, will not touch a pellet, if he does, it's spit out..presoaked or not. He eats blood worms just fine. It's all he has eaten since I purchased him almost three weeks ago. He appears healthy, happy and active. I can't help but think he may need something else to supplement his...
