Circuit Breaker Measures In Singapore

Dear Betta Breeders,

With the current COVID situation, many countries are on lock-down of different degrees and in Singapore, we have the Circuit Breaker (CB) which is disallowing hobbyists to travel for non essential matters. Furthermore, pet shops are all closed till further notice.

Many breeders are facing problems of getting fresh live worms as betta fries are picky eaters.

For those that know me, I am against the method often "googled" upon which is the feeding of boiled egg yolk. I find bettas do not accept this and it fouls water very quickly, recently a fellow hobbyist tried this method after discussions and it is working:

1) Scald fresh prawn meat piece in boiling water for 1-3 seconds.
2) "Scar" the meat for easy biting.
3) Dangle the meat on a piece of line/string to catch the fries' attention near the water surface (natural eating area) and with movement.

He had also shared that after this, the fries start to recognise the smell and taste of dead prawn/shrimp and started feeding on frozen brine shrimps.

Happy betta breeding and stay safe!

Cheers! :)
