Perfectly Sized Pellet:For a 1.5 inch betta (from tip of nose to base of tail, before fin), feed three pellets of Betta Bio-Gold up to three times daily. Add 1 pellet per 1/4 inch of growth, never feeding more than 5 pellets at one feeding. Additional feedings can be made if they are at least three hours apart and at least that amount of time before all lights are out in the room. During feedings, feed one pellet at a time and make sure the betta completely consumes each pellet. Do not overfeed. Overfeeding can be detrimental to the betta and the water quality. Remove any uneaten food after the feeding period.
Baby Micro Pellet: For a 1.5 inch betta (from tip of nose to base of tail, before fin), feed six pellets of Betta Micro Pellets in the morning and six at night. Add two pellets per 1/4 inch of growth, never feeding more than six pellets at one feeding. Additional feedings can be made if they are at least two hours apart and at least that amount of time before all lights are out in the room. More feedings will improve growth for your betta. During feedings, feed one pellet at a time and make sure the betta completely consumes each pellet. Do not overfeed. Overfeeding can be detrimental to the betta and the water quality. Remove any uneaten food after the feeding period.
Bettas are called "fighting fish" because the males fight with one another. You should never keep males together for this reason, but can keep a single betta with other non-aggressive fish in a larger aquarium. Keep your water at a low to moderate acidity and maintain a temperature between 73°F (23°C) and 81°F (27°C) free of drafts or rapid temperature changes. Change some water weekly with a water conditioner to remove chloramines, chlorine and ammonia that is the same temperature as the water you are replacing.
"I have three male betta fish, two years old. They have been on Betta Bio-Gold and Bio-Pure FD Blood Worms for three weeks now, I have seen marked improvement in all three fish. Plus they go into a frenzy at feeding times. They absolutely love it!"
"Hikari foods are far superior to the other foods on the market. In fact, in the case of my betta I would never give him any other type of pellet!"
"I can't believe how my betta loves Betta Bio-Gold. I now feed him this product exclusively […] You have a product that my fish truly loves. He eats all the daily servings in about a minute. "

"Your food has really helped my old fish! I have a Betta named Dragon who is approaching three years old. Earlier this year, I noticed his fins were shrinking, his color was poor, he was becoming listless, and did not attempt to fight with his neighbors in nearby bowls. I was certain he was going to die very soon, as my other Bettas were becoming old and weak, and some had already passed on. Soon only Dragon was left. I purchased a new Betta, and as I always do, bought what he was eating in the pet store, because they can be very picky about their food. It was your Bio-Gold food, and I began to give this to Dragon. Within two to three weeks, he was being more active, his color was returning, and he was taking notice of his new neighbor! Even his fins seem to be in better condition now. He is now back to his beautiful velvet black to silvery blue, and he's quite feisty. Thank you Hikari, for saving my beautiful little friend!"

"my fish 'Simon' enjoys your food. There is really a difference in your food. He eats it better. I have noticed better, richer color and he eats it all"

"I only feed your Betta Bio Gold to my betta boys. Their color is beautiful and vibrant and they are feisty and healthy. I don't even look at other products in the store."

"I bought 2 bettas about 3 weeks ago and bought a double fish tank as well. Inside the box was a free sample of Hikari Betta Bio-Gold. To be honest, my Bettas love your food plus it keeps the water very clean!"
"The [other brands] stuff is just not working out. Every time I try to put the pellets in they sink to the bottom. Supwidat? His mouth was too small so he couldn't eat. Then I tried Hikari and it is exciting for him to eat. Believe me he seems pretty happy now. Woo-woo!"
Colleen R.San Lorenzo, California
"The difference is night and day! My betta now always wants to eat, whenever she sees us she will be so active and asking for more food. Her color is better too. Hikari Betta Bio-Gold is the best!"

“I am really looking forward to trying the Betta Bio-Gold and am anticipating another success.”

"I recently purchased some of your Betta Bio-Gold. I am amazed at how our fish responded to it. He actually seems much more content and he engages us when we are near the bowl. We have had our betta for about a year and I really thought he was slowing down, but the food has really increased his movement as well as attitude"
"I breed bettas and recommend your food compared to everything! It's brilliant! My bettas never had so much color. Your competitor's food is standing still compared to yours. I experimented with the other foods on my baby bettas the third time after breeding and they looked poorly. Switching them to your food made them beautiful!"
