Catherine feeding the fish in the fish bowl.

 

Here is Nevin's daughter,
Catherine, age 5, feeding the fish in a fish bowl. She picked out a few pieces of Freeze Dried Blood Worms and was very careful to just feed a few. Can you see a red Male Betta just below Catherine's little finger? The Betta came to the surface and ate all the food, so Catherine gave him another small feeding. He ended up getting 4 small feedings and there was no uneaten food left in the bowl.

1. What Foods to Feed Your Fish
Most small fish living in fish bowls will do well on a diet of flake food and freeze dried blood worms, which are actually mosquito larvae. Click here for more information about appropriate fish for fish bowls.

What does your specific fish eat? For many species of fish this web site contains a page of information about that species of fish. Each of these pages has a paragraph about feeding that species of fish. Click here to go to the paragraph about feeding Bettas on the page about Male Bettas.

2. How to Feed Your Fish
Feed your fish twice a day with floating food. We recommend you feed your fish products such as the ones listed above. Start by feeding your fish a very small pinch of food. Carefully watch them eat. If they eat it all quickly, then give them another small pinch. Feeding your fish slowly in small amounts will give you a chance to watch them and make sure they are all eating.

Keep giving them small pinches as long as they eat all of it quickly. Feed them as much as they?ll eat without leaving any uneaten food.

Food that sinks to the bottom and is not eaten will cause water pollution, so be sure all the food is eaten. Use your net to remove the food that is not eaten after ten minutes. It?s fun to feed smaller fish a few of Freeze Dried Blood Worms for dessert.
 
Other Foods. It's good for most fish to eat some frozen or live brine shrimp and a few live Black Worms. We try to alternate feeding live or frozen brine shrimp with Live Black Worms. One day most fish get brine shrimp, and the next day they get Live Black Worms. Click here to read more about Live Black Worms.
 
Do Your Fish Need to Eat Everyday? No they don't, but don't abuse them! Most fish that you can buy from this web site or elsewhere are very young, and like all young animals, they need food at least twice a day, every day. Make a commitment to take the time to feed your fish carefully twice every day.
