Another common question is whether other fish can eat Betta food?

For some reason I see this question all over the help forums: Can Goldfish Eat Betta Fish Food?

Although your fish can live perfectly on this food alone, it is recommended to change the menu every once in a while, just to be sure that your betta fish is completely healthy and full of energy.

Wheat flour is the second ingredient on the list. Zoo med is using wheat flour is a binding agent in this case. Wheat flour is also what is known as a protein filler in betta fish food. It is something to hold together all the nutritious goodness that you find inside of these micro betta pellets. It’s completely safe for betta fish to eat just in case you’re wondering. Mind you I said safe, not needed or even particularly wanted in their diet. But pretty much every betta pellet has wheat flour in it as a binding agent. So the food for betta fish should be protein rich meaty foods.

Knowing the right way to feed your betta is fundamental, because not doing it right can have big consequences on your bettas health. Nothing is more stressful than dealing with a sick fish, right? So, let's do it right, and get rid from the calamity!

Here are some golden rules on feeding your betta.

First, select the proper food. Bettas are selective eaters. A betta specific pellet is ok, but live and frozen foods are preferable. The recommended diet includes frozen brine shrimp and frozen bloodworms.

The next rule is to not overfeed your Bettas. Carefully dose the meals, because even if the fish ate all you give him, he will produce so much more waist when overfed and the pollution level of the jar he is in will go beyond safe range, this problem is smaller if you keep your betta in a larger aquarium. Remember not to leave uneaten food in the Aquarium! Once your betta and rest of the fish is done eating, you must remove all uneaten left over food. If you do not remove it, it will punctually rot and cause havoc in the tank.

Bettas prefer to eat from the upper parts of the water column. They don’t really enjoy eating from the bottom of the tank. So before dropping the food in the tank, make sure you have his attention. Let him see the food, get it close to his face from the outside of the aquarium, let him check out what it is, and then there you go! Drop food in front of his nose. The best way is to drop a tiny bit of food--about 6 frozen brine shrimp, watch the bettas eat it all and then look at the belly, if it looks the same as it did before you fed, it’s ok to give them more, but always watch and make sure to make the second portion smaller than the first.

Your betta should go for the food right away, but if not, watch where the food sinks, and what the betta does. If more than 15 min he has not eaten the food yet, remove the food. Never let the water go cloudy. If it is already, then change it, as cloudy water will threaten your betta’s health. Normally, small bowls or containers should be changed at least twice a week. Larger tank can be changed once a week. And notice if the ammonia and nitrite levels are up the roof, because both are very bad for your Betta. Also be wary of harmful bacteria they can ruin your fish life, but don’t kill of all bacteria in the aquarium since a lot of bacteria is essential for a well functioning aquarium.
Bettas often fare better when provided with a wider selection of different foods. The reward is in the eye of the beholder through a show of richer, brighter as well as deeper shades and hues in the fish's appearance. Another advantage is that Bettas who follow a varied diet of high protein and high fiber foods will heal much faster than those Betta fish that consume a limited-variety, low fiber and low protein diet. One of the more popular Betta fish foods is the Combination Betta Pellets. These fish food pellets are essentially a mixture of common fish food such as bloodworms and mashed shrimp meal, and a special vitamin blend. This combination boosts the immune system, promotes longevity and enhances the . Like other pets, bettas sometimes don’t know when to stop and will gorge themselves on their favorite foods, such as bloodworms. When they do this, or if you’re overfeeding your fish, they’ll become bloated, which can cause serious health problems and even death. To tell if your betta is full, look for a slightly rounded stomach just beneath the gill area.
