Default Best and Worst Foods for Bettas

I've been doing some research about good and bad brands of food for bettas, so I thought I would post what I have found, and information about whether all of the popular brands of food are really good for bettas or not.

First of all some Definitions

Fish Meal - "Fish meal is the clean, dried, ground tissue of undecomposed whole fish or fish cuttings, either or both, with or without the extraction of part of the oil."

Basically meal is ground up, dried out parts of the animal that are not considered human grade. They are higher in salt but lower in protein and nutrients then whole meats would be.

Foods that contain just "fish meal" are not good, foods that contain more specific items like "Antarctic Krill Meal" or "Herring Meal" while still not as good as whole fish, are a much better option then those that contain just "fish meal"

Foods that contain whole meats and not too many fillers are going to be much better for your bettas then foods that contain meal and lots of fillers.

Now I'll post some popular brands of betta food, and their ingredients. And put the title in Red if the food is low quality or bad, Purple for neutral and Green if the food is a good choice to feed to your fishie!


Atison's Betta Pro

Ingredients
Pure brine shrimp embryos | wheat flour | vitamins (stabilized ascorbic acid, vitamin E supplement, niacin | thiamine mononitrate | folic acid | calcium pantothenate | riboflavin | menadione sodium bisulfate complex | Vitamin A acetate | pyridoxine HCL | Vitamin B12 supplement | Vitamin D3 supplement, biotin) and preservatives (calcium propionate, ethoxyquin).

The cold water marine proteins and fresh omega fats in Betta Buffet micro pellets make it a nutritional must for all Bettas. With natural pigments in salmon skins for vibrant colors. Additionally, the protein binder in Omega One, which is not water soluble, results in a much cleaner environment, especially in a small tank. Never clouds water!

I always fed mine the Top Fin color enhancing bits and he loved them. He lived for nearly 3 years so I don't think there was anything wrong with the food.

I am simply showing which foods have better ingredients, and which foods may not have the best ingredients. A dog can eat pedigree their whole life, doesn't mean that it's the best choice out there for it

It's not one of the top brands, it's not too bad, it does contain fish meal which isn't good, but it also has shrimp meal so it has a little more protein then some of the brands that only contain fish meal

I was going to say, anything related to Top Fin, Tetra, or Wardley should be left to collect dust. I can buy Wardley flakes at my grocery store....rofl. NLS is an optimum product, and really promotes color enhancement. Pricey but worth it.

is there any actual scientific studies to back up what you are posting here ? for any kind of difinitive accurate evidence of the posted statements there would have to have been some pretty exhaustive side by side comparative studies performed..
stating that specific ingredients are bad relyy need to be backed up by solid evidence...
not just some hobbyists opinion....unless they might be an aquatic nutritional biologist...and even then i would want solid proof to back them up..
"fishmeal" does not eliminate the use of the whole fish.."krill meal" is dried ground whole krill...i know what krill meal is...i sell it...i also sell what is considered to be one of the top 3 fry foods in the world....it is dried and ground....it costs me over $165.00 per pound for the micro powder....but because it is dried and ground up you may not consider it to be of any quality at all....

flare.....not trying to be unkind to you...just want you to make "accurate" statements backed by scientific evidence...

i have questions..
please explain the difference between krill meal and whole krill meal...
if fish meal has whole fish . why is whole fish better than fishmeal ?
what are you referring to when you say whole meats ?

some of your statements are a bit contradictory...i am not a nutritional expert ; but i have been selling high quality fish foods for several years.....

do you really think that these food manufacturers would put a product out on the market that was bad for your fish ?
i have some food for betta fry that will make them grow faster and will enhance their colors.....only 1 ingredient.........but it costs $15.00 per ounce......

I'm sorry, I was just trying to help... I have more research to do, I guess I shouldn't have posted anything until I was totally done.

I don't know the difference but I read some place people saying that foods containing fish meal aren't as nutritional as foods that contain more specific meals like arctic krill meal, or even better foods with whole fish (not meal, which is not human grade) like the omega one does.

I don't think they're bad for the fish but just like dog and cat food there are brands that are cheap and low quality and brands that are higher quality and made with better ingredients.

when a dried fish food is made ; it is made with dried fish that is ground into a powder....
a word of caution my friend...when researching ask pertinent questions...especially when that somebody talking is not a real professional...i have heard a lot of people bash others foods because they think it is too costly or too hard to find or they just can't get a good deal on it.......
i sell Plecocaine...it is the name i gave a very high quality food...it is great for all fish...but i never tell people that it is a good staple food...to me ; there really is no such animal as the "perfect staple"....Plecocaine is great for bettas...but not as a staple...it is designed as a food for fast growth of young fish and for priming females for breeding..it is also great to feed 3-4 times a week along with a variety of other foods..
when looking for what to feed your fish you really need to study that species food chain...
all fish are omnivores..or at least almost all.....yet we call them herbivores or carnivores or piscavores...most all carnvores eat fish or animals that are more herbivores..that is how they get the veggies they need...

don't be sorry...you are doing fine..just keep researching...and like EMC said...don't worry too much about the ingredients...look at the guaranteed analysis....
