Betta Fish Care FAQ’s

How Much Should I Feed My Betta? (And WHAT Should I Feed Him?)

First of all, the best Betta food to feed your fish in my experience is pellets. Pellets and flakes both provide all of the nutrition your betta needs (a diet of only live foods does not provide this) but pellets are easier to measure out. It is for these reasons I’ve found them to be the best choice.

Overfeeding can be detrimental to a Betta’s health and you want to be careful to avoid this. Feed just two pellets in the morning and two in the evening. Make sure there is lots of space between feedings and if you can’t remember if you’ve fed him for that sessions, don’t worry about it, he can go a long time without food.

What Should I Do If My Betta Fish Won’t Eat?

He’s probably just used to a different food from the pet store and this is very common, don’t worry about it! Bettas can go 2-3 weeks without eating before becoming ill due to malnutrition. If it’s been a week or more you might try feeding him the inside of a frozen pea that you heat up in the microwave. Just cut it up into small pieces first!

What Temperature Is Right For A Betta Fish?

Between 78 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit is perfect. Anything is this range will suffice but be sure to keep your temperature constant, rapid fluctuations are unhealthy and stressful for your fish.

What Size Tank Should I Use?

Of all of the how to take care of a betta fish questions, this is one of the most debated. Here is the definitive answer: 5 to 10 gallons MINIMUM. Betta’s naturally live in large expanses of rice paddies in Eastern Asia, don’t put them in a 1 gallon vase and expect them to be happy.

This book is amazing!!

We (my then 8 year old son and I)had just lost a betta “boo boo” when I found this book. Just a bit to late. We took a break from fish and decided to get back into bettas. We decided to get a female this time and she has made it 10 months and is thriving thanks to this book! She is the happiest fish in the world and shows it in a unique way that you will find out about in this book. Very well written and a true asset to have in our collection.
