i have a question concerning betas

Postby Fox lover » Mon Feb 23, 2009 12:44 pm

i just got a male beta here recently and was wondering if it was okay to feed him little pieces of lettuce and veggies here and there, he is the only fish i have at the moment and he seems to be doing just fine. he is not in an aquarium at the time he is however in a tupperware bowl that holds enough water so that he can swim around and it is wide enough that he has enough room to move about. i am in the process of getting him a 5 gallon tank to live in and i plan to get more fish to accompany him and the tank. he normally eats his beta pellets but i wanted to see if i could give him anything else for his protine to make sure he is healthy

any suggestions?

thanks : fox lover

Maybe try frozen shrimp or bloodworm. I'm not quite sure that they like lettuce, I just know that mine prefers my mollies' babies :twisted:

Baby guppies would be a good thing to feed him and they are very easy to breed.

You would have to have a real big tank to try to avoid him pecking on fins

yeah, I see them as grumpy old men, which see a rival in anything!
Even when they make their bubble nest for the female, you put the female in with him, get the whole egg business over and done with and get the female out of there otherwise he tries to fight her too!! :roll:

Any that I've had loved frozen (thawed) bloodworms, or in the summer mosquito larvae.
