What are the foods that fish . . . love the most? We’ll list them below but first . . . one thing that you should keep in mind is: "It’s best if fish eat a variety of foods". Foods which we’ll call "Prepared foods". Things like freeze dried foods, frozen foods and even live foods.
However, one thing that all fish owners quickly learn about their fish is they are finicky eaters. It’s like the old saying: "One Mans Food Is Another Mans Poison!". This holds true when it comes to fish as well. Food that you give to one of your fish will be consumed as quickly as you place it in the tank. However, give the same food to another fish and he’ll spit it out just as quickly! So, what type of foods do pretty much all fish love? Let’s find out below.
Some Known Fish Favorites
Freeze Dried Blood worms. This food is liked by almost all fish. And it has a lesser chance of being infected by parasites say than freeze dried grub. Here’s another favorite… live baby guppy fish. They oftentimes go wild when you feed them guppies. Then there’s specialty foods just for fish. One excellent food you can easily find at your local pet store is: "Hikari Betta Bio Gold" Bettas also love the stuff! And its great nutrition for them too!
Frozen food which includes Blood worms and "Brine Shrimp" is another favorite of almost all fish. You can use a little dixie cup to thaw-out the frozen food but, make sure that you use fresh tank water which is the best. How many Blood worms should you feed you pet fish? Usually about three to four per feeding is about the right amount.
Different Styles Of Fish Food
"Mosquito larvae" is another food which fish seem to love. They’ll even thrash about trying to devour all that they can! But the bottom line is (when it comes to feeding) . . . finding out just what your pet loves the most, and serving it up as the main meal. Luckily feeding fish comes down to offering them what they’ll eat. So, you can see that your fish love lots of different types of foods, and what one fish will eat another fish may turn his nose up at!
Try a few different styles of fish food, and it won’t take you very long to work out which food is the favorite of your pet fish. Just remember that their stomach is tiny and usually no more than the size of its eye. In some instances, it holds true that fish eyes are bigger than their stomach! So, you should keep this in mind at feeding time. Also, try and limit the amount of fish food that you feed you pet fish. You can find other advice about betta fish traits
