Is it only for betas 

Asked by: Googaplex
Thank you for your interest in this Tetra product! No, other tropical fish may also eat it, although it is nutritionally balanced for bettas, in particular. I would recommend using it as a supplement to another diet for other fish. BREX

my beta has stopped eating his BettaMin!

He's about 1/3 of the way through the .81 size. He ate well until about Thanksgiving. He still swims happily among the philodendron and artificial plants in his aquarium. He is at least 2 years old and is fed once a day. I have learned not to overfeed over the years. He may be getting less exercise. I started with 3 containers, each with a beta and plants. 2 died early on. I think from not changing the water faithfully enough.
Asked by: GG48
He only needs to eat once a day, one or two flakes. Make sure his water is nice and toasty; around 80-84 degrees. If it is too cool, he won't eat as much. BREX

Does this product expire? I

I have one I found - been sealed and away from sunlight - I can't locate an expiry date.
Asked by: MaryCiaramem
It would not have an expiration date, but does have a best buy date, with a lot code, on the bottom of the can. Shelf life is 3 years. After that, it starts to slowly lose nutritive value. BREX

How much food do I give my betta?

It says as much as they can eat in 2 mins. But how much do I start with?
Asked by: Scooter456
Bettas should not be overfed. 1 or 2 meals a day, that consist of 1 or 2 small flakes or pellets is plenty. BREX

Betta is turning white?

Our Betta is about a year and half old. Very active and loves to eat! We feed him Tetra Bloodworms andTetra Bettamin Flakes Tropical Medley with Color Enhancers. He is slowly turning white. Started with his head, then moved into body and fins. Our fish is very active and seems to have no problems. We have him in a 2 gallon large glass vase and change is water on a regular basis. Is this normal? Are the color enhancers making him white? Or should we be doing something else?
Asked by: BubbaBetta
We are not sure why he is changing to white, although we have heard of this happening in bettas before. We can say his environment could use a little improving. He needs heated water around 80 degrees, and a slow moving filtration system to provide some oxygen unless you are changing 25% of the water every 1-2 days. The diet seems to be excellent; just make sure you only feed Bloodworms as a treat, once or twice a week, and that's all. One thing; some fish have certain pigment cells in their bodies that change with age. I am over simplifying what happens, as it is pretty complex, but he may basically have this condition. It is not life threatening, and there is no way to stop it. Sometimes adding direct sun or a lamp with UVB rays for a few hours a day can make a difference. Of course then, you may get a lot of algae. BREX
