Stormy is finally big enough to eat a whole Attisons Betta Pro pellet!! It’s funny that she likes them so much because the first ingredient is brine shrimp and I tried to give her a little bit of frozen brine shrimp the other day which she spit out. Anyways, these are the two types of pellets I use in her diet but since she was so small (malnourished but also young) I only fed her the omega one ones along with the occasional blood worm.
I know that you study nutrition so I want to ask you about something I'm concerned about. Omega 3 vegan sources come from walnuts, flaxseed, chia seeds and such. This comes in the form if ALA which is converted by the body to DHA and EPA. My question is how much of it is actually converted and is the amount converted enough to keep us from being deficient? Do i have to take algea oil supplements to satisfy DHA and EPA or do i not worry about it?
