Does that sound accurate or should I not be skipping a day, and should I feed frozen more then once a week?
The pellets I'm using are pretty small - I've been feeding them 6 a day, sometimes 7. That makes sense to rotate the food more, must suck eating the same thing everyday.
It's funny what little beggers they are!
Well, I feed frozen foods almost every day
. It's fine to feed them a lot...just count it as a meal and don't feed pellets that day. With bloodworms I would say feed them two or three times a week but of course it would be better if you were able to rotate between different frozen foods
Yeah, it's a good idea to fast the animals once a week.
Also, I don't know if you are already doing this but it's better to give two small meals then one big one. So it would be best to feed a few pellets in the morning and a few more in the evening.
You can rotate pellet brands, too
. I don't know what the ingredients are in your food but the more protein, the better. You could try rotating with a really high-quality food like HBH, Hikari, or Atison's. This isn't needed if you are feeding frozen foods, though.
Haha, yeah, bettas love to beg
. Some fish are just like that, lol. My clownfish is the same way.
