    After repeatedly google searches, I am still feeling a bit fuzzy on the recommended diet for my Black Orchid Betta. I have been feeding him Betta flakes from the store, but flakes are messy and hard to portion right, and they settle at the bottom of the tank and make it turn gross really fast. I...

    The fish food I got is from a Thai brand called Optimum. The size is labelled as Micro Pellets. Now I know that micro pellets from different vendors vary in size. So I measured the pellets and found the diameter to be 1mm. I've been feeding him 4 pellets in the morning and 3 at night. So far no...

    Hi, my name is Kibbles, I'm the blue beauty. My mom thinks I am getting fat. :surprise: She thinks Bitz is getting fat too (she is the ugly red and blue fish). Mom is new to keeping bettas and does not know how much to feed. She went and bought TetraPro Crisp flakes, Omega One - freeze-dried...

    I have a blue betta that was given to me as a gift at the end of 2015. I put him in a 2.5 gallon tank with a filter and clean the water regularly. I keep getting different instructions on how to feed him. I was told, when he was a baby, to feed him two pellets every other day, which I did for...

    I need a little fish advice, please. They arrived today, in transit since Tuesday. I have New Life Spectrum small fish formula .5mm sinking pellets. I read on here (somewhere) to only give them two or three pellets twice a day. I fed them two hours (soaked pellets first) after they got here...

    Hi Everyone! I'm new to Betta fish ownership and have a question about feeding. I posted last week about aquariums and filtering and got some wonderful feedback and really appreciate this forum. I received a baby betta fish for Christmas. He was presented to me in a tiny quart container. I...

    Hey everyone. I recently succumbed to a year long desire to get a fish and purchased my betta, Valentine. He's beautiful and I'm already in love with him, but I've gotten paranoid that he's going to die. I had some betta's when I was a kid but never was taught how to properly take care of them...
  10. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have been treating him for bacterial diseases. His extreme bloating decreased. But I can't feed him more than one pellet every three days or he will start floating at the top. I feel bad cuz he tries so hard to swim down. What do I do? Yes i treat the water, I put Aquarium salt sometimes...

    Today I decided it was time to get a new betta fish, seeing that my old betta had died a few months ago. I was reading some of the forums on my phone and one of them said that Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets were a good food. I eagerly grabbed them off the Petco shelf. After getting home I...

    I have one male betta in a 5G tank. I'm feeding him Aqueon Betta Food pellets, which he loves (rejected flakes). But I have no idea how much to feed him. The container says "several times a day, as much as he'll eat within 3 minutes," but wow, that would be a lot of food. If I drop in a...

    I've noticed many threads on the site about feeding live fruitflies to your Betta but no one has described the process of actually getting these bugs out of the jar and into the tank...How exactly do you ration out a certain number of the things without them escaping and wreaking havoc in your...

    So my Oberon recently had a looooong bout with constipation, he is better now but has lost a significant amount of weight. I'm currently feeding him 2 Aqueon color-enhancing pellets and the occasional frozen brine shrimp or small bit of fish once a day, but he doesn't seem to be gaining back any...
