Hello! This is Kaini, FORMERLY Ebony-Feathers.

But please, Call me Kai.

I'm a huge fan of Tron, Wall-e, Disney movies, Transformers Prime, Star Trek (favorite being Deep Space Nine)
I play; Portal 2, Team Fortress 2, Pokemon, various RPGs.

you are quite experienced in betta keeping, yes?
can i uh, ask for advice? if its okay with you.
Kai-ni Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Yes absolutely! I am always open to questions on care, ask away :)

ohmygod i accidentally clicked away while i was typing this big ass reply now i have to redo it OTL

I have a little double tail boy
i know theyre more prone to constipation and sbd cause of their shorter bodies and unfair genetics
but my baby shay gets constipated after nearly every feeding and it worries me

Untitled by AGloriousComeback  

theres a picture of him, hes such a cutie

i typically feed him 2-3 pellets per meal, but lately ive only been feeding him once a day instead of twice like i used to.

i dont feed him when hes all constipated, and it usually takes around 2 days for him to pass his poops.

i have a few different foods that i alternate between using:

aqueon color enhancing betta [i have a lot of this stuff, i need to use it up] main diet for shay, theyre pretty small
omega one betta buffet pellets [theyre so inconsistent in size, i have to pick out the tiny ones for shay] main diet for the other two
tetra bettamin flakes [i was babysitting a betta and he would only eat that garbage] i dont use
tetra bettamin pellets [theyre massive and i havent even opened them and they belong in the trash] why do i even have these
freeze dried bloodworms treats given once or twice a week

I have tried feeding him smaller meals, but still gets bloated..
i have some frozen peas in the freezer, ive read it helps, but when i asked a few people about it, i was accused of fish abuse?? and apparently to that person i dont deserve to have bettas, even though i was only asking.

i dont have this constipation issue with my other doubletail sokka, so this is entirely new to me.
Ive also tried pre soaking his pellets for a few minutes before feeding, with no luck.

Ill be getting 20$ for mowing this weekend, so ill be using that to get things that he might need.

I read that mysis and daphnia can help, but frozen food is super expensive here, and i dont know if ill be able to afford it, or even how to feed it to them. Ive never bought frozen food, and i dont even know if ill be allowed to keep it in our freezer OTL

would freeze dried work just as well or no?


I have some new life spectrum betta formula coming in the mail [i cannot find it anywhere for the life of me] 
was curious if its really as good as ive heard? whats your opinion about NLS and does it have any better benefits to what i already feed my babies, or is it no different than what they eat now? 

but yeah if you can help me out with some advice on my baby and his constipation issues, that would be great.

i dont really know who to ask on tumblr now, without people yelling at me for alleged fish abuse when i did nothing wrong.

I'm sorry people are getting grumpy with you on tumblr, that's not like the fish community there. I'm primarily active in tumblr's fish community, and most of the people I know would never do that. That sucks :/ The pea thing is highly suspect because Betta don't eat plant matter and aren't equipped to digest it, so personally I don't suggest it, but it's not something to get worked up over. I'm actually curious who said those things to you because it really reflects poorly on the community as a whole.

Food wise, I'd cut out literally everything you listed except the omega one betta buffet. The other foods have plant fillers and will only make his bloating worse. Freeze dried foods are AWFUL for causing bloat - they're dry and the freeze drying process destroys any nutrients. Do not feed freeze dried foods! Frozen are far better, if you can get your hands on frozen daphnia.

Aqueon's betta pellets are awful, full of plant fillers, just toss them. Those honestly may be your bloat problem right there.

New life spectrum is a fine food! I prefer omega one myself though. Omega one is really a great food.

Also, what is his tank size, filtration, temperature and water parameters (ammonia, nitrite and nitrate in PPM tested with a liquid test kit)? These are key in figuring out any problem.
