Wanna hear something strange?

I realized this the other night when I fed my new betta. I always wait to see if my bettas eat their food and he did but immediately after he coughed it back up. Anyways, I walked away and when I came back, his food was gone! It's so weird because if I'm near his tank then he won't eat but if I'm not then he will.

Awe he's shy! XD

Sometimes, I peer around the corner to watch my fish so that I can see what they do when they don't know I'm there. As soon as they see me they just swim back and forth in the front... expecting food I assumed. :P

I read once that Bettas are like dogs... they'll beg and beg and beg for pellets and give you the "BUT I'M STARVING - I'VE NEVER EATEN IN MY LIFE" eyes even if they've just eaten lol, silly things...

Sooo true... I could easily over feed them if I wasn't careful! It's just so fun and they are so enthusiastic! XD

Lol, me too. O.O The only one that I have that doesn't beg and beg and beg is Hyperion, but I think that's cuz he's the shyest fish I've ever seen in my life.

In the edited words of a disney princess, may all of your fishy dreams come true. ^_^
