Bettas are an interesting type of fish. I bought a veiltail betta fish. Btw, do you feed your betta fish bloodworm?
*
No, so far only pallets and small insects

I giving AZOO 9in1 Betta Pallets that's available at my taman Aquarium shop.
Probably trying out Hikari or Ocean Nutrition Betta.

Is bloodworm good for the Betta? I mean those Canned stuff?

Problems is most packing takes forever to finish by 1 Betta
Unless can share between a few buddies.

Thinking of getting those RM5 Betta water conditioner too, suppose to have Daun Ketapang content.

My aquarium:

thinking of DIY Betta leaf Hammock as well.

Too much for my Betta

Anyone wants to exchange 10grams with me with another food type?
Freezed mosquito larvae, Brime Shrimp, NLS Betta pallets, Betta Pro pallets etc OK.
So that Betta gets different menu instead of same thing everyday.

Exchange free of course other than postage. Use slow mail also OK.

Thx

Oh thanks for the breakdown. Am looking to start keeping betta. Yeah I was looking at the Fluval 5 gallon tank too but that's a chunk of money to spend on just the tank itself.

Fluval Spec is mostly for planted or small fish community tank.

It no point keeping a betta in a Fluval Spec without doing a planted aquarium.

For something simple, i rather get 2~3 mini aquariums (1~2 gallons) and keep a few Bettas instead of 1 lone Betta in a Fluval Spec 5 gal tank.
Once you play betta, you sure wanna get a few more. So keep the cost lower by getting a cheaper tank and a simpler setup.
Whatever it is, start with 1 1gal tank first. After you are confident, can add another one.

And Betta in a small tank dont like other fishes, maybe a small snail will do.

Please don't spend more than RM100 for a Betta tank, unless you decide to decorate it as well.

Cheers

hi guys! I have a new Betta fish. Want to ask what brand of food good for them. I got a rm2.50 BETTA brand food pellets. Is it good? I went to the store the guy say all same only. hmm.gif

Put her/him/? in a tall fish tank with money plant inside. My fish likes swimming around the roots. Have trimmed off some roots so there's space for the little guy to swim around.

Shipping will usually be added on top of the fish pricing. RM15-25 per parcel depending on the number of fishes ordered.
