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? Water Temperaturehttps://youtu.be/YC67zZxkS78 I did a water change and added aquarium salt and left the light on for a bit before I did the water change. Do a water change but as mentioned above don't do a full change, maybe 30-35%. The light not being on def. probably effected their behavior. Just start everything back to normal and they should come out of their coma. Suggestion for future is try to get someone to come in every day and night to feed and turn light on and off. For us we just got back from a 10 day vaca and we have a dog sitter so I just explained it all to her and gave her notes on the tanks and things to watch for. Like a filter malfunction and sick/dead fish. When I came back after 10 days the tanks were a little dirty but nothing crazy happened! Hopefully this helps! http://bettafishcaretaker.com/best-food/ The first thing I would have done would have been to get some water tests so I knew exactly what I was dealing with. Then an appropriate water change and ramp up on some salt (depending on the species). Depending on substrate, I'd have done a good gravel vac as well ... people tend to overfeed fish if they're not used to keeping them. And then I'd try to get them back on their normal schedule. Looking for a nice looking piece of driftwood to put in a discus tank. Thinking about the ones with lots of branches. Does anyone knows about a good site or a place in Florida where I may be able to find something like that? I checked Seascapes in Sarasota but they do mot have anything. I appreciate your help guys.
