My silly little female, Aurora, the piggy-fish...

Every time I go near her tank, she swims up to the food hole. She's such a little piggy. I only give her a few pellets a day, of course, because she's only 1 inch long (I measured), and don't want to overfeed. But I honestly think she would eat 20 pellets a day if I let her. She's such a little chow hound. I love her! Honestly, she begs like a puppy. Even uses her eyes to beg! She's so adorable! Anyone else have a piggy little Betta?

My females in the sorority are crazy! They line up (the same order every time) and get fed. One always jumps the line of females, and grabs the last females pellet in the air.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

Haha! I'd LOVE to see a video of that. I just walked back into the room, and Aurora was immediately at the food port again. I love Bettas. They are so full of personality.

Awwe, the more stories I hear about girls the more I think they would be so fun!

You should get at least one! I have mine in a 1 gallon. She's SUPER tiny, so it's the perfect size for her. =)

LOL ^__^

At this exact moment Lulu's wiggling and dancing right in front of her tank begging for attention. When food comes around though, she will JUMP! Anona is more gentle, I guess because she's so big. Pallas will also jump to get his food. I swear I have mini pirhanas! The other guys are a little calmer but they still get excited.

Hey Disco, you should get a girlie!

I agree with Sweeda and fleetfish. You should get a girl. They have as much personality as the boys.

I love the fact that Aurora has a ton of personality. Sequin doesn't have nearly as much. Aurora will nip and poke at my hand/fingers if I put them in her water. Sequin just backs up or swims away as if I'm a shark. lol

Sequin (m), Shortcake (f), Westley (m), and Sir Righty of Walton (m).
