I mix this with other Betta Pellets, Krill flakes, Tropical flakes, freeze dried bloodworms and freeze dries shrimp. I crush it up a little and they love it. But this is good on its own. It is a little smaller and my smaller Betta have no problem with it. Great product for my Bettas.
All of my bettas love these pellets. I like that the pellets are a nice, small size.
Seems to be a great pellet. Will order again.
Added these pellets to his variety of food and he enjoys them. The bottle comes with a little spoon that makes it convenient to feed. Thank you Aquarium Co-op!
my 3 year old betta seems to like this better then the pellots i was feeding him.will buy again
Bettas eat meat. Those kept as pets are typically fed freeze-dried bloodworms that are available at any pet store. In the wild, bettas feast on bloodworms, shrimp, and insects like crickets, flies or even grasshoppers.
This food has grains as the 2nd and 3rd ingredients. This makes me question its use for carnivores, such as bettas.
Ethoxyquin is not healthy, yet it's in this food. Yuck!
Because the manufacturer is fine with the use of ethoxyquin, I suspect the grains in this food are genetically modified organisms - GMO's.
IMHO, this food is average, at best, for nutrition. (I can't give it 2.5 stars so I gave it 2 due to the yucky ethoxyquin.) Using soy to boost the protein content for carnivores is always questionable.
"So what" you may ask. "They're just fish! Besides, my fish like the taste." Kids like Twinkies, too, but sweets are restricted, not a staple. I'm sorry if you disagree with me, but my pets - even the "just" fish - are fed the best food I can find for the money. I do not include this food in my bettas' diet. (I recommend freeze-dried creepy-crawlers/swimmers and the Repashy, which I discovered on this very website. Good stuff! When you add water as directed it goes a long way.)
With this being said, I want to include that I, personally, agree with 90% of what this owner has to say, and I'm a tough sell. ;-) He's taught me a few things, and I appreciate his knowledge. This is why I recently started to buy from him~
I purchased this brand after listening to Corey mention it on a video about having great acceptance rates with Bettas. Mine absolutely love it and will eat it much faster than the Hikari Betta pellets.
Great seller! Prompt shipping and competitive prices.
My Betta's prefer this to any other i have tried, even flake food, and they know when i'm going to feed, because of the spoon that comes with it. i leave the spoon laying on the stand in front of the aquarium, it is hard for me to fish out the spoon from the tiny container because i have arthritis, so i leave it on the stand, when i pick it up they know whats coming! they do seem to like it better than any other, i will be buying again.
I bought these because I like to give my bettas varied food in all of my tanks, the males in the three tanks took to em but when I placed them in my sorority tank with 7 female bettas they really seems to enjoy them
