I just bought a male Betta today at Walmart. I bought a Marina Betta EZ Care Aquarium Kit and TetraMin Tropical Flakes fish food. Will the tank and fish food be alright for my Betta? Do I need to get a different tank and food for him? What kind of water can I use if I don't have any water conditioner handy or just don't want to get any? Is bottled water that you can find at a grocery store or Walmart be alright? How many times do I have to feed him? I believe he got feed today before I bought him since he didn't eat any of the fish food I gave him. How many days do I need to give my Betta before he is fully acclimated to his new surroundings and is accustomed to me? Should I put paper over the lid of the tank so that he doesn't jump out at night? What temperature should I set the house when I am there and when I'm not there in order for my Betta to be comfortable? This is my first time owning a Betta so I could use all the help that I can get. I'm also looking for a suitable names for him as well.

One item that is recommended for vacations longer than 1 week or more is an automatic feeder. They are only recommended if you get a high quality one though; you cannot cheap out here because you get what you pay for. Cheap automatic feeders have killed a lot of betta fish since their inception. They’re both inaccurate and unreliable – not feeding at all or dumping the entire amount in at once. This leads to death by overeating or through water pollution and disease while you’re away. If you do purchase one of these, make sure it is highly reviewed like and set it up a couple days prior to learn how it performs. This product has a built in timer, allows you to portion out the food, and will dish out up to 14 individual meals. This is a great option if you plan to be gone for over a week.

Fish food is probably one of the best kinds of food that you can feed your betta fish, mostly because live food is what fish naturally eat when they are not in captivity. Don’t worry because you don’t have to go fishing or digging for any special foods to feed your fish.Fish pellet or flake food containers often say “Feed what your fish will eat in 5 minutes or until he stops eating.” This DOES NOT apply to bettas. In the wild their instinct is to eat as much as possible because they don’t know when their next meal is coming. In a tank, however, we DO know when their next meal is coming. It is up to us to not overfeed our fish. Overfeeding can lead to problems and illness not to mention obesity.Overfeeding pretty much any living thing is generally not a recommended practice, and can cause many of the same problems as what happens when you personally over eat. How do you feel after overindulging? Betta fish get bloated too. Bettas can also get constipated. In the betta world though, these issues can be more than uncomfortable. Betta bloating and constipation can quite easily be very deadly. Apologies for the gloom and doom betta talk but, these are serious conditions with possibly morbid outcomes.A: Raising baby betta fish is a delicate job. What to feed baby betta fish depends on their age and size. Betta fish baby food can be found in stores, or you can feed them cooked egg yolks for the first few days. Betta baby fish need different food than adult bettas because they can’t eat such large food. Research baby betta needs for more information.Skipping a day’s feeding occasionally can be actually really beneficial to your betta fish. If you decide to skip a day, make sure that you do so no more than once per week. Meaning, feeding your betta 6 out of 7 days a week. These are like little betta versions of fasting, or detoxing, or whatever you personally relate “not eating for awhile” to.The most important thing you need to know about your betta if you’re looking to feed the best possible foods is that these fish are 100% carnivores. Their upturned mouth reveals what they like to eat in the wild: insects that have fallen into the water. They can’t survive on plant based foods and, contrary to what some pet stores will tell you, they do not eat plant roots. A proper betta diet always consists of protein based foods.
