I always watch to make sure my betta eats his pellets but hadn't really noticed what he did after the initial gulp so today decided to find out - I can't hear any sound (the water pump probably drowns it out) but he chomps really hard about 4 times for each pellet. Will try turning the pump off to see if I can hear him! :)

My males make some serious noise when they are tending a nest of eggs.
