My bettas eat new life spectrum pellets every day, frozen brine shrimp, live microworms and frozen daphnia two or three times a week and bloodworms once in a while.
If you want to give dried bloodworms as a treat you can soak them in tank water for a few minutes. Dried foods can cause constipation and other problems. A very good commercial food should not have things like wheat and dye in them. Those fillers are what causes too many diseases in bettas.
If you want to feed some live food you can grow it yourself so you know it has no diseases.
I have lots of weird things in my refrigerator and my kitchen. Lol

NLS pellets and Omega One are pretty much complete nutrition. Your Betta can live a healthy life with nothing else. If you're ordering online, see if you can get Northfin Betta pellets from Canada -- absolutely the best.

There is a gel food that comes as a powder that you mix yourself. It contains no fillers and is very high quality. It's called Rapashy Meat Pie, and it is excellent for Betta.

Hikari is not as good. Look up the ingredients list, you will see what I mean.

Mosquito larvae is a wonderful live natural food that you can grow yourself in season. (You may have a long season there.)

I forgot about mosquito larvae, it's been a long winter. They're easiest of all to grow and they can stay outside, away from the human food.
:lol:

Wait, mosquito larvae granules!? So, are these pellets or something? What a great idea! Take something no one in the world wants and turn it in to a "nutritionally complete" kibble and convince everyone its better for thier betta than the real food its supposed to replace.
I'm sorry, I find this hysterically funny for some reason. Why would i buy mosquito larvae?! The darned things are the bane of human existance, its not like they're rare or anything.

Insects are part of the Betta's natural diet. Therefore it might be beneficial. I have not been able to find a nutritional analysis of the larvae pellets though.

It makes me wonder what betta breeders in asia feed them while raising them.

I have 5 years' experience in raising mollies and I think the best food for them is brine shrimp because it contains a lot of pigments that help your mollies maintain its beautiful colors. it also contains a bunch of nutrition that helps mollies have an excellent immune system and a good digestive system. My mollies eat brine shrimp two or three days per week and it seems that they still remain the beautiful colors and stay healthy.
