I hate fasting day...

I hate fasting day. Every Monday I wake up and uncover my tanks. King my older, larger vt swims up all excited (his life revolves around food) and he just watches as I walk away. Everytime I walk by his tank he explodes up to the surface and gets into feeding position and then just watches as I walk past. After a while he seems to get mad and gets more flarish LOL. My little ct doesn't seem to mind, he thrashes and spazzes just as much as he normally does. King almost seems to get depressed. Oh well only 18 more hours to go.......

My Bettas:
King ( blue and red (sometimes purplish) vt)
Mako (itty bitty wild-type colored ct)

Besides, they will love you even more tomorrow.

I know it's best for them. They are so ravenous the following day you would think they had been starved for a week LOL. God help any small creatures that come too close to their tank until they are fed again LOL

Oh, I know! It can be so tough to resist-bettas are good at giving puppy eyes when they're hungry.

lmao. mine never begs for food. ever.
that reminds me..
there was a ton of teeny weeny itty bitty ants running around my nighttable because of the ant poison i put there a couple weeks ago, so i caught a couple and fed them to my fishy.
George (betta) was like "om nom nom" then he was like "really wierd and stunned expression and stands completely still" and then it was "om nom nom"
It was his first live food. and he was so wierded out it was hilarious!

Lol!

I haven't done a fasting day every other Sunday like I should because I end up forgetting!
