Bloodworms are a lot like betta fish pellets in that they are sold everywhere as fish food and have many of the same nutrients. They are often sold freeze-dried and you will need to get them wet before feeding them to your plants. Again, they are or your local pet food store. I have no personal experience with using bloodworms as food, but many carnivorous plant growers swear by them. They appear to be a bit more expensive than Betta pellets, but the choice is completely up to you. I’m sure neither feeding method has any significant advantage over the other. It’s just personal preference.

I know this is a late reply, but I did some research on SBD, and found a website that I think would be worth your time to look at. I’d do your own searching around and whatnot, but here’s one I found;

And by saying you feed your Betta fish five pellets – is that per day, or twice a day? How big, roughly, are the pellets? I know I have two types for my Betta Shark – one of them is rather large pellets(maybe a fifth or sixth the size of a pea), while the other are itty bitty, more like crumbs. (He seems to prefer the crumb-ones) When I feed him the crumb-sized ones, I feed him a few more of them than i would the large pellets. Generally 1-2 large pellets in the morning and night, or 3-4 tiny ones morning/night. I’ve also heard people recommend to fast your Betta one day of the week, which helps to keep constipation – which can lead to SBD, so I’ve read – from occurring. Pellets specifically formulated for bettas can be fed but may not be best as the fish’s sole diet, as they can have some drawbacks.

These fish are carnivores, and prefer live or frozen foods to anything else. It’s more nutritious than pellet or flake food, and produces less waste in the tank. If you can get live foods, use these as often as you can. A varied diet is important to your Betta’s health.The digestive system of the betta fish is specifically designed to handle a high protein diet. A diet that would be at least 50% protein is best. Most betta food (pellets) will have a protein rating of at least 50%. One of the more popular Betta fish foods is the Combination Betta Pellets. These fish food pellets are essentially a mixture of common fish food such as bloodworms and mashed shrimp meal, and a special vitamin blend. This combination boosts the immune system, promotes longevity and enhances the .These fish don’t typically respond well to pellet or flake foods, but most new or casual Betta keepers find this the most convenient route. Once they get a taste of live or frozen foods, they will usually turn their noses up at pellets or flakes next time you try them. I give my Bettas a diet of live brine shrimp, frozen bloodworms and pellet food. If you want to convert them back to prepared pellet or flake food after feeding them live or frozen, just starve them a couple of days and add pellets at that time. They will get hungry and eat them, and it doesn’t hurt the Betta at all to go a couple days without food.Betta fish only need to be fed 2-3 pellets per feeding so one container will last a very long time. Use them for a healthy, happy betta. Good luck! are a good option for your beta fish because unlike normal fish pellets, these ones have been specifically made for betta fish. They contain only ingredients which beta fish are known to like and they have nutrients and vitamins specifically designed to keep betta fish healthy. Betta fish pellets are really easy to find and aren’t very expensive either.
