Betta fish need to be fed a proper diet. Though pet
stores sell generic food, you should ensure that you feed
your betta fish appropriate food. Generally, betta
fish can eat a wide variety of food.
Betta fish should be fed twice a day. You can take a
small pinch of food in the morning, and a small pinch in the
evening. You should make sure you do not overfeed
them. Extra food will become waste and generate toxins
when they sit in the bottom of the tank. If your fish
overeats the extra food, it can become ill and develop
illnesses due to overeating. Check to ensure that your
fish is not gaining weight - a bulge may develop in their
belly area if they are eating too much!
Betta fish enjoy eating pellets.
Pellets can be used a staple for betta fish diets. The
pellets must be specifically made for betta fish! The
pellets will sink after time, so make sure that you give
just enough food to ensure any extra food does not fowl the
Betta fish do
not always like flakes. The flakes must be
specifically made for betta fish! Try feeding your
fish a few flakes to see if they like them or not.
This sort of food is often supplemented with other betta
fish food to ensure proper nutrition for your pet.
Betta fish often enjoy
dried food. One such type are blood worms, which betta
fish eat in the wild. This sort of food can be used
as more of a snack or a treat, since betta fish love this
food very much!
