I like to give my fish a variety of foods, as it has been proven that the wider the variety, the healthier the fish. I have a lone Betta in a 5gal aquarium. I feed him floating betta pellets, and once a week I peel and defrost a pea, that he munches on. He gets freeze dried bloodworms occasionally and I sometimes crumble up freeze dried shrimp, that he gobbles up as well.
I notice that sometimes his floating Betta pellets will sink to the bottom, and he ALWAYS follows it down and eats it off the bottom. I know shrimp is safe for them to eat, but what about sinking shrimp pellets? They have additional ingredients besides just shrimp, so I wonder if it's safe to break them up smaller and supplement this into his diet as well? I use the pellets for my corydoras in my other tanks. Maybe he's getting enough variety, and it's not worth the risk? Or is it fine, and there is no risk? If it's not good for him, are there any other suggestions besides what I have listed for giving him variety? Thanks.
