How often Should You Feed a Betta Fish? - Aquarium Adviser
"Your food has really helped my old fish! I have a Betta named Dragon who is approaching three years old. Earlier this year, I noticed his fins were shrinking, his color was poor, he was becoming listless, and did not attempt to fight with his neighbors in nearby bowls. I was certain he was going to die very soon, as my other Bettas were becoming old and weak, and some had already passed on. Soon only Dragon was left. I purchased a new Betta, and as I always do, bought what he was eating in the pet store, because they can be very picky about their food. It was your Bio-Gold food, and I began to give this to Dragon. Within two to three weeks, he was being more active, his color was returning, and he was taking notice of his new neighbor! Even his fins seem to be in better condition now. He is now back to his beautiful velvet black to silvery blue, and he's quite feisty. Thank you Hikari, for saving my beautiful little friend!"
How and What to Feed Your Betta (Fighting) Fish - YouTube
Finally, (yesterday) I got him some friends. I wanted a good clean up crew for my betta, since I KNEW there was tons of uneaten food in his tank, and I was fighting the ammonia BIG TIME! I got him four loaches (these are supposed to be nearly neutral on the ammonia impact, since they eat uneaten food) as well as 15 ghost shrimp (I REALLY don't want to deal with algae at all) two "glofish" otherwise known as extremely altered zebra fish, (my son really likes the color pink right now, so we let him pick two fish, and he got the pink "glofish") and one german blue ram (I like cichlids, and this is the only one I've heard about getting along with bettas, about 50 percent of the time) So all of a sudden, Elvis got 4 loaches, 15 shrimp, 2 zebras, and a ram!!! If he wasn't eating because of loneliness, that was about to change! And guess what... IT DID! He still wouldn't eat, after my son fed all the fish. He did his typical *stare at the food until it gets water logged, then watch it sink to the bottom, then swim away* But then the ram, zebras, and loaches gobbled up all the food. It took about 12 hours before I discovered a ghost shrimp's eyes, and face, sticking out of Elvis' mouth!
I WOULD NEVER FEED MY BETTA THAT..
