Thanks! I was thinking once a week as that is when I feed my betta freeze dried bloodworms. I will start feeding him the Frozen kind so he will have that kind. I just felt kind of bad having to throw a lot away when I didn't use them after 2 days. I would have to melt a cube into a bowl and then there be a bunch left over because he only eats 2 to three. But when I have all the fish that I will have thenprobably barely any will be left. =•)FinalFins said:I agree. Bloodworms are very fatty so I feed my fish them once-twice a week, the rest of the week is either flakes or granules, I mix it up so the fish have variety.
I'm going to probably get some different types of frozen food. I have the flakes now and freeze dried bloodworms, plus Frozen ones in the freezer that I'm waiting to use till I get the fish for my 20 gallon. I was thinking maybe brine shrimp since I started out feeding my other betta fish brine shrimp because Petco didn't have any blood worms. If they have other types of frozen food maybe I'll get one or two more.=•)jjohnwm said:Ideally, I think that any specific food should be fed sparingly. I virtually never use the same food twice in a row, much preferring to vary the diet as much as possible...both mine and that of my fish.
There is something to be said for using only a single nutritionally-complete commercial diet for animals since it guarantees balanced nutrition. However, if you could actually buy "Purina Human Chow" and be guaranteed that it provided complete balanced nutrition if used as your exclusive food...would you?
Didn't think so...won't do it to my fish or other critters either.
Ok. I think I will wait until I have my other fish though. Because I will probably have my tank cycled in a monthyukondog said:I cut or just shave off only what you need for that feeding that way you never have any waist. Or you can take a couple of cubes cut them up into smaller portions and freeze in a ice tray with some water in each one, i use the small cube silicone ones from Walmart, cheap and they work.
