A betta’s favorite foods include the following:
- Fish flakes or pellets
- Brine shrimp
- Small insects, such as fruit flies
- Insect larvae
- Freeze-dried grubs
To ensure your betta gets a well-balanced diet, make sure to look into everything you feed it. The flakes or pellets should have a high crude protein content.
Also, don’t feed your betta any live food you catch from outside. Buy live food from reputable sellers, or culture them yourself.
Lastly, thaw frozen food first before feeding it to your betta. Avoid using regular tap water to do this. Use a small amount of the tank’s water instead.
