Today I go over the basics of feeding your betta. I cover everything from who, what, when, why & how of betta food! If there is anything I missed/did not answer, ask below! I edited a few facts out as this video was already 6 minutes long. These facts were: FASTING Fasting is only necessary when feeding a lower quality food. The plant based food are harder for your betta to digest than meat-based, which is why fasting once a week is recommended when using plant-based foods. PELLET SIZES Small bettas or even picky bettas may spit larger pellets out and refuse to eat them. Solutions to this include: - Buying Micro Pellets (Extremely tiny pellets that fit in the tiniest mouths ) - Buying a Pepper Grinder and crushing the pellets into fine pieces - Crushing the Pellets yourself using the lid of the food container.

It says "20 Seconds of Courage" which is a quote from the movie We Bought a Zoo.
