Yeah I could have been a little more straight forward as well.
Atleast I have 1 follower 馃槈
You don't breed bettas but you already own like 12+ ? I've only got 1 and it's hard to stop thinking about breeding him lmao. Although I have no room at all for that. Hence why my aquarium is in my entertainment unit shelf.

Even more at this point. I like a busy tank. I love all the different personalities they have. The other day when I had to grab a plant weight out of the tank half the girls were circling my arm a few close enough that they were rubbing against it. The weight in question had been used to keep zucchini down for clown plecos.

What foods do you feed yours?

This is my feed schedule:
San Francisco bay Frozen Micro blood worms
Fluval Bug Bites Pellets Betta fourmla
Fluval Bug Bites Flakes Betta Formula
Topfine Betta Crumbles
Northfin Betta Bites

So every time I feed its something different for him

I do the fluval bug bites flakes and the spinurillie (not sure of spelling). and the sinking pellets and some other pellets. Can't do frozen foods since I share the apartment.

I share my apartment too with my wife & kids ;) I pointed to the frozen food and said this is not beef stock ok lol

Just an FYI incase you ever wanted to try these yourself, the Topfine Betta Crumbles is pretty close to micro pellets, it's almost dust and more importantly it's difficult to sink. That stuff just floats alot, so it's kinda helpful. I wanna find a good easy source of live food like Daphnia.

Cool I may try them as well. I share an apartment with my mom and her only request was no live food and no fish food in the freezer.
