What can I feed my betta fish other than fish food?

I assume by "fish food" you mean standard flake fish food. Bettas are carnivores, so you can feed them many of the commonly available frozen fish foods (bloodworms, plankton, krill, tubifex worms, etc). You can also try tiny bits of raw shrimp from the grocery store and/or worms from the garden/yard. Give the fish a chance to check out and eat the new food, but be sure to remove anything the fish does not eat in about five minutes.
