  1. Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I got my betta fish on the 19 of April. He’s in a ten gallon with a heater and filter. I’ve never seen him eat. I’ve tried pelletes, flakes, and freeze Dried blood worms but he hasn’t seemed the least bit interested in food. I’m worried he’s going to starve. I don’t know why he isn’t eating he...
  2. Frozen Brine Shrimp Betta Food...

    I've recently been recommended these San Francisco Bay Frozen Brine Shrimp for my Pink Orchid. I defrost them first in some warm bottled water and she absolutely loves them. The issue is that there are just TOO MUCH SHRIMP in one cube! It was a hassle cleaning out the tank after feeding them...

    Hi all, I recently bought my betta frozen bloodworms and have been thawing them and feeding them to her. She loves freeze-dried bloodworms but it didn't sit well with her digestive tract. I think she doesn't understand that the thawed frozen bloodworms food because it sinks to the bottom. Any...

    Hello all! I am needing some help. I am in college, and with winter break coming I am struggling to figure out what to do with my betta. I would rather not take him home as it would cause him a lot of stress that is unneeded in a short amount of time. I have vacation feeders that will last...
  6. Breeding Betta Fish
    Hey-- I am interested to know how all of you out there feed your male betta while he is tending the eggs, or if you don't feed him at all. Some say if you feed him, he will be used to food and start to eat the eggs, and others say if you don't feed him he will get hungry and start to eat the...

    Hi all, My partner and I have a single betta fish and two small apple snails in a 5 gallon tank. Their names are Gandalf (betta), Brownie (brown apple snail), and Gertrude (yellow apple snail). It's well established with a few moss balls and 4 lucky bamboo stalks. I've recently looked into...

    I want to give my betta some bloodworms (Hikari dried ones) because I thought he'd appreciate some variety. He was severely stressed last week due to me being away and my dad forgetting to feed him for a week. When I came back he was super pale, had severe fin biting, and had shoved himself...

    I've been in the process of switching my goldies over to strictly fresh/frozen/live food and thought; why not my betta tank? I know a lot more about goldfish than I do bettas. So asking those who feed ONLY fresh/frozen/live: What do you feed your carnivorous bettas?

    Hello, I am planning to start a planted aquarium for a betta. This will be my first betta, but also my first time keeping any kind of aquarium. Next week I am planting and starting the tank, so it will be several weeks before I actually have a fish and put one into the tank. That said, I...
  11. Betta Fish Care
    Hello! I've had this betta for almost a week and he does this strange thing where he will excitedly eat a pellet and then spit it out, and sometimes try to eat it again. This results in him rarely eating or eating sunken pellets off the bottom much later. I am attempting to feed him Omega...

    Hi, I have a bottle of "Omega One Freeze Dried Bloodworm Betta Treat" that I bought at my nearby PetSmart. I only have one betta and only gave it to him as a treat occasionally. I haven't given him any in about a year, because the expiration date on the bottom of the bottle says 05/25/15. Do you...
  13. Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello all, I plan on starting a planted tank with no fish or other animals. The goal is to have a tank ready to go and cycled if I see a betta I need to buy ("need"). I'm going to do a fishless cycle with fish food, and my question is: how often should I add fish food after the tank has cycled...

    I'm looking for brands that carry smaller pellets than the ones they sell at petsmart! I've been looking and looking but all of them are about the size of their eye, it seems. Please post what youve seen out there! I'd like to order online, as I haven't found any local. Thanks!!!

    Have had my first betta since Saturday. He ate three NLS Betta pellets the night I brought him home, no problem. Since then, though, he mostly just takes them in his mouth and spits them out again and again until I guess he gets fed up with it and swims away. I clean them out with the turkey...

    I've looked around the forum, but all I seem to find about food is that bettas eat a high protein diet. But does anyone know what percentages they should be eating? How much protein? How much fat? How much fiber? My betta eats 2 pellets of Tetra Betta Plus and 1 flake of Nutrafin Max every...

    Hi Everyone, This is my very first post and I'm new to Betta fish care. First I want to thank those of you who set up this forum. I have learned SO MUCH just browsing through the posts here. From what I've read, I'm really not sure if I need to be worried or not. I've had my Betta for about 10...

    Hello everyone! I have a question! Is there a reason or a way to have a betta fish not be a picky eater? My betta fish, Atlas will only eat bloodworms and I guess the other little treats but nothing relevant to pellets. I tried to feed him pellets and he will just spit it out. But with blood...

    So, here is a pic of all the food I have been feeding my betta, Garnet. I got the pellets for free from someone that let me adopt their betta awhile back. I bought the flakes since it said color enhance and to give him some light food. I also got the freeze-dried blood worms for protein since...

    I bought three Thai imports that arrived on 1/6. They adjusted pretty fast and by evening were hungry. All 3 ate Omega One Betta Pellets readily. On Sunday two of them stopped eating and spat out the pellets repeatedly. The third ate pellets and continues to love them. The advice from the...
