How many pellets should I feed my fish a day?
The best method is to start slow and only offer 3-4 size-appropriate pellets pet fish. If your water temperature is between 65-75F (18-24C), feed once a day. Below that, every other day or every 3 days. Above 75F (24C), you will likely need to feed your fish twice a day.
Are pellets good for bettas?
Pellets are the most effective choice for Bettas and can be used as a daily source of food. Unlike flakes, they are higher quality and can be found in most local pet stores. They come in all sizes and colors. Many pellets are sold in small cans with a lid, and some even including leaflet with feeding instructions.
Are flakes or pellets better for betta fish?
The reason that most people use pellets is that they’re often higher quality than their counterparts (flakes) and it’s also easier to watch how much you’re giving him. As well as generally being higher quality than flakes they also have the added benefit of looking more natural to your betta.
Why does my betta fish spit out his pellets?
Don’t be alarmed if the betta spits out its food. This, too, is common behavior and it’s believed to be a mechanism for breaking down and softening the food. Try some live bloodworms or live brine shrimp if all else fails, either one will almost always entice your betta into eating.
Do bettas like music?
There is no evidence that betta fish likes music. Betta has the ability to hear and recognize certain words. But that doesn’t mean they enjoy music.
What food is best for betta?

- Active, smooth swimming movements.
Why are my fish so hungry?
My fish are always hungry Many freshwater tropical fish and goldfish will come to the front of the tank and “beg” for food. This is a learned behavior and does not mean they are hungry. Remember, fish are built to scavenge or prey on foods in the wild. Fish soon learn that your presence at the aquarium means food.
Can fishes feel pain?
The answer is yes. Scientific evidence that fish are sentient animals capable of experiencing pain and suffering has been building for some years. It has now reached a point where the sentience of fish is acknowledged and recognised by leading scientists across the world.
Can I leave my betta fish for a week?
Outlined in the food and feeding guide, betta fish can go up to 2 weeks without food for a healthy adult. All bettas are different from their age, health, metabolisms, and environments so not all fish can fare as well left unattended. The maximum amount of time away without feeding should be 4-7 days.
Are betta buffet flakes good?
The fresh seafood ingredients in Omega One Betta Flakes are particularly attractive to bettas, since they thrive on a higher protein diet. Plus, the natural protein binders in these flakes are not water soluble, resulting in a much cleaner, healthier environment.
Do betta fish like moss balls?
Betta fish simply love Marimo moss balls! Watch your pet when you first add the moss ball to his tank. The ball will float on the surface of the water until it takes on enough water to sink to the bottom. During that time, your betta will explore the ball and play with it, pushing it along the water surface.
