Seaweed eating bettas....

Today I bought some dried seaweed at petco for my snails. I didn't know if the snails would eat it or not but the package said it was for salt and freshwater fish so I thought I'd give it a try. I figured at least the bettas won't eat this. HAHA! Figment and Fable are fat as a tick now and mommy is not very happy. Really guys? Seaweed? Anyways....the snails and their food have been removed from the tank for feeding and the boys will be skipping a meal or two.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

I don't think there's anything they won't at least TRY to eat, lol. I was trying to get a piece of zucchini wedged down near the bottom of the tank for my snail and Sven was "helping" by taking nips from it

Yeah.. Anything new that "moves" they will try to take a nibble.. xD

My female always bites the snails/shrimps algae replacement pallets... She never got bloated though because she always spills everything out... But still annoys me xD


That's me on the photo alright.
