I have no idea, but I'd really like to know this tooLagerthaM said:I am thinking about dabbling in making homemade betta food but I am not sure what I should put in it? I was thinking mysis shrimp, blood worms and beef heart but I don't know what else? Any ideas?
I was thinking about buying those frozen breaker packs that hikarI makes and sells and combining a bunch of them together to make cubes of a sort. Maybe even add beef hearts, I have heard that bettas love those!ystrout said:Well Betta Buffet pellets contain salmon, herring, shrimp, a few different wheat and similar fillers, and halibut. I'd copy that. I would also try putting some bugs and fish in there as fish eat tons of bugs in their natural habitat. Also add some garlic for flavor. Fish LOVE garlic.
If I were making a food, I'd stick with fish, shrimps, and bugs and give them bloodworms and Mysis separate since frozen food is so easy to come by. People always say bloodworms are too rich, whatever that means. Maybe too much protein and fat? They're the staple of my puffers' diet, along with snails and shrimp My betta gets quite a few bloodworms too. Maybe it's just too much protein and fat for omnivores but is great for carnivores? I don't know...
