This morning while feeding, my Betta was NOT going to wait, and jumped at my hand to get the pellets before I even dropped them in!

Sometimes he'll try to fit 3 pellets in his mouth at once, but can only handle two. This is only when my boyfriend feeds him though, I feed him one at a time so he doesn't kill himself or get bloaty.

Mine are the same. They rush up to the glass every time they see me, thinking it's food time. Also, they jump at my finger for their food, which I taught them to do. It's so cute.

I'm taking care of my friend's betta while she's out on a trip but he's a very pushy betta when it comes to food. Every feeding time he starts swimming like a maniac around the area that the feeding hole is in. At one point he almost attempted to jump at me. My friend's betta is just insane when it comes to food.

Caroline's always begging for food. Lulu, will just about jump out of the water to get the pellts, like she's rushing at them and attacking. even Hyde's a piggy(which i'm happy about), and stuffed his mouth full of pellets the other day. xD

Neptune waits just beneath the surface, begging just like a puppy!
Jennifer used to carry her food around in her mouth, but lately she has learned better manners. :)
