all of my bettas have nipped me at some point.. it's never really hurt that badly.

but that is sooo cute. :3 you should take a video of it sometime and upload it for us :D

i've trained mine to come up for food whenever i tap at the surface of the water.

Boys: Ichabod, Canary, Perseus, Louie, Cherokee, Rojo

Rest in Peace: All of my former fishies. <3

I will! So far he's a lot less hesitant to come near my hand. :)

Nah, it feels like a tiny pinch. Just grab you finger between the nails of your thumb and index finger on the other hand and apply slight pressure. That's what it feels like every time I've been bitten.

He's getting better! Now he isn't so anxious to grab the food and leave. He doesn't mind staying near my hand to swallow it. I'm still trying to get a halfway decent video of it.
