I heard them chew!!!

I always thought that you really couldn't hear them chew.... My filters are loud, so I figured that I would not be able to hear. Well tonight when I was feeding my boys, one was really close to the glass and I HEARD him! It was the sweetest little sound!!! I listened to the others, and heard a few of them!

Haha, mine does that too, all the time.

If its a really big pellet I can sometimes hear him from across the room. At first it worried me because he wasn't eating at all, and I thought there was something wrong with his mouth or something; but since he can eat without any problems now, I just pass it off as a quirk.

Gosh, he is a noisy fish though.

Yeah, my bettas chew really loud. hehe. One of them makes a sort of clicking sound when he breathes in air from the surface.

I turn my filter off to feed my fish as it tends to cause a lot of surface movement and I figure they rather not have to chase their pellets about... They make the loudest smacking noises when they eat.
