if you dont want to feed BBS then dont he will eat when hes hungry.... My ex roommate is going thru this with a fish she's had for a year.... he's decided he only eats bloodworms... so now he gets offered a pellet in the morning and if he doesnt eat then he doesnt get any other food for the day. When he decides to eat she will feed 2 pellets in the morning and 3 at night and work up to 4 in the am and 4 at night....

Remember unless theres a medical issue with the animal it will not starve its self

I have had my Red Betta since February and he eats anything I put in his tank. I tried to put a small school of Neon Tetras in with him a few months ago and three died of new tank syndrome and he killed the other three so I guess he likes his home to himself. His name is Spot by the way.

I love red bettas :D

LOL. I didn't know bettas ate THAT much o_O My new betta, GummyBear, is the exact opposite and loves sneaking up on the corys but they are way too fast for him ^o^

I think the name Flick or Peligro (Danger in spanish) would be pretty cool :)

Has he started eating yet? I would not offer food for a few days and then off a single pellet.... he will eventually eat....
Me? My betta is a pig now -_- Eating as much as he can and I finally decided three pellets a day is enough and he can snack on some flakes if he wants. LOL.

Your betta is very cool looking:) I have a crowntail betta who does the exact opposite:) He will eat 3 pellets day and afternoon and flake sometimes too, but today i tried feeding him freeze-dried krill and he wouldn't even touch it, and i guarinty it's still there:) I'm trying to almost "gut-load" him and my female because i want them to breed:) At somepoint very soon I want to try feeding them bbs and see if they eat them because that's what I heard you're supposed to feed them for about a week before they breed:) If you have any other information for me about breeding, please let me know:)

It is not recommened that you breed DT X DT for several generations. Singletail to Doubletail will give you 100% singletail in the first generation. Approximately 75 to 90 % of which will be DT geno. Picking two siblings from the 10 to 25 % that are not DT geno will again give you 100 % singletail. Spawning DT X DT will give you mostly DT fry but not guaranteed 100 % DT. Breeding non-related DT's is OK for a generation or two. I have a 2 month old spawn of 2nd generation DT's growing out at the moment and will outcross the next generation to a singletail or unrelated DT.
