Rated 1 out of 5 by from None of my Bettas will eat this I have 12 bettas, and all of them refuse to eat this. Not sure why, don't have issues with any other Tetra foods that I feed the other fish, but this is strongly disliked by my bettas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good balance of nutrition, for the money I have been using Bettamin for well over 20 years now. Excellent Betta food it provides colour and energy to any Betta, Easy to digest too. No issues with Betta constipation either. I also supplement with freeze dried blood-worms and Daphna as a treat. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food is not just food BettaMin is the first and only fish food I have every had any luck with. After making that the majority of my betta's diet I noticed him having more energy and more color. I successfully moved him to my community tank a few years back and continued to use BettaMin and now that is the only food my tank will eat. I've tried giving their original food and it would just sink to the bottom untouched while they go crazy for the BettaMin. Would also like to note that my fish are all between 4 and 6 years old. I have sadly never had a fish live past 2 until I started using BettaMin.

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
