Me got a betta fishy.

He won't eat the pellets, only because one they are to big for him to eat.

He has't to eat flakes. :( but any way its ok, because I have been feeding him wardley advanced nutrition flakes. i also plan on crushing the pellets.

Its really sad when an adult gourami can't even swallow them. And the bottle says mini pellets... ya right.


5gallon, One male betta
10 gallon, full of baby fry/ one baby betta
34 gallon:2 peppered corydoras, 2 upside down catfish, 2 cherry barbs, two danio's, 2 platy's, 2 high fin platys, 2 red swords, 2 angelfish, 1 dwarf Gourami, 3 black skirts, two diamond tetra's and 2 gold Gourami.
And going to get, 2 cory cats

well thats the trouble i was having with Neptune thats why i got the betta flakes instead....gave you the regular food to see if it would work for you....well it doesnt ill have to share some of Neptunes flakes with Finnegan untill we can get back to petco....Actually im thinking on getting Grandma that 5 gallon tank for Finnegan for Mothers day since its her fish.... Maybe then he will stop getting ticked off everytime he looks at the big tank from his bowl.... Cant blame him though im sure he will be much Happier in a bigger tank!

They are tetrabetta mini floating pellets.... something tells me the wardly advance nutrition flakes is better for him any way......

My mom picked them up for neptune and he couldn't eat them either, as stated above. Finnegan can't eat them either.... Heck my adult gourami can't eat them.

My angle fish can't eat them, non of my fish can. they half to sit and wait till they soften up to be able too. And then most of my fish were like, ya.... no you feed us the good stuff were sticking to that thank you.

He also wants to challenge doctor who for the bigger tank. Poor gourami, just hides... I might angle the picture so he doesn't have such a good view of the big tank. Stupid plugs....

Ya I think getting him a bigger tank and a five gallon will be awesome. Then she can get a little corry for the bottom.


Also my giant mail sword tail can't even eat those things. They are two big for my fish all of my fish.

There's also the suggestion of squashing the pellets down to edible sizing?

They make me oh so happy~
