Best Food for Betta Fish? Flakes vs Pellets?

Omega One Betta Buffet: http://amzn.to/2AY4Bu Question Submission: What are the best foods to feed my betta fish? My male seems to hate these pellets I always feed him. What other alternatives are there? I just got back from a week vacation and my fish don't look so well. I left the lights off and I had a person feed them once. Some don't have their pigment and they are just sitting at the bottom and not swimming. I put some food in there and they didn't eat. I'm going to do a water change and add some aquarium salt. What do you guys think I should do? I've never left mine for a week but I'd say get them back on light,feeding and cleaning schedule. They should be fine! I wouldnt do a water change right away... start them back on their regular schedule and let them have some light time... When its lights out they rest on bottom and their color fades... so give em a lil time before you make any kind of changes. Heater for Betta Fish?

What to do about a brand new Betta that has stringy white poop, indicative of parasites (I believe). I am tired of losing fish due to chemicals that "safely treat parasites" I want to feed garlic which helps carnivorous guppies with parasites, safely. Is there any harm in trying?

My betta won't eat anything but pellets and flakes. Trying to switch him to brine shrimp but he lets it completely dissolve and gets his tank dirty. Think I'll stick to pellets, as that's the only thing that he likes/will put in his mouth

Omega one is the best pellet food you can feed a betta fish. It doesn't have any fish meal. I've never seen a betta fish who hasn't liked it, and I've owned betta fish for six years now.

They might like it but it isn't good for them. The don't eat wheat and other stuff in pellets in the wild. The betta will be much healthier eating carnivorish food and will probably like it much better after it gets use to it.

Aly Homewood
Aly Homewood - 5 years ago
+TheLastFish You need to keep a variety in your betta fishes diet, feeding just pellets or just bloodworms, is not healthy for your fish, I personally feed my fish a variety of frozen bloodworms and brine shrimp, as well as pellets I feed omega one pellets very infrequently, as always pre soak pellets in some of your tank water to avoid blockages and digestion problems) Also, I add the occasional skinless green pea to add fiber to the diet.

My betta loves pellets AND bloodworms. The pellets that I got are especially for bettas and he is perfectly fine with them. And I even taught him to jump & stuff so he never gets bored in his little tiny tank! :) (you probably don't even know what I'm talking about but on my channel, you'll see a tiny tank)

they are highly Territorial, but not carnivores. 
Wayde N
Wayde N - 5 years ago
1 word, "Bloat" thats what happens when vegetarian fish eat meat. they will of course because they are trained to bite on anything you drop in there. but in the wild, things are different. i will use african cichlids as my example... look up what happens when they eat meat. its cool when they are babies... but as they grow up the results are unhealthy to say the least. PLEASE DO NOT FEED BETAS MEAT ON A REGULAR BASIS.
Aly Homewood
Aly Homewood - 5 years ago
+Wayde N Betta fish are carnivores, that frozen food is "too rich for bettas" is a myth and probably got started because some idiot fed their betta on a diet of only bloodworms, which, predictably, gave the betta digestion problems because of the lack of fiber, go figure.
Anal Avocado
Anal Avocado - 5 years ago
They are omnivores but mostly eat small insects, the reason they bloat is because of harmful ingredients in food
Wayde N
Wayde N - 5 years ago
you are so wrong, they are vegetarian by nature, coming from the rice fields of asia, if im wrong, no problem... ill happily eat my words. but i did read up on them many years ago.

Wayde N Bettas are carnivores not vegetarians. Make sure that when you do research you use reliable sources and that they are specifically talking about Bettas and what they eat and not where they live.

They may live in a very vegetation area, but doesn't mean they are vegetarians. Betta's are capable of jumping out of the water catching insects. I've taught my betta to do that with blood worms

Great video! I personally feed my betta 2 meals a day: The first in the morning is one Omega One Betta Buffet pellet and a couple frozen bloodworms, then the second is another pellet and a couple frozen spirulina brine shrimp. I do not recommend feeding them freeze dried foods as they can cause bloating and constipation issues. Pellets are fine as long as the first couple ingredients on the package are whole fish (like my Omega Ones) and you soak them in tank water for a few minutes for easier digestion. Flakes ruin your water quality and bloat your bettas.
