Kyon was doing so well in his new tank, I'd baught him a lovely selection of plants and ial and he was looking so happy. I fell quite ill on Friday and left my other half to take care of all the fish while I was ill. Instead of feeding him 1 pellet at a time he just dumped 3 in which meant he probably only at 1 before the others had sank, and his royal highness won't eat off the floor. I came down to get a glass of water and he'd bitten 2 great big holes in his tail :( is this because of the disruption and change in his feeding?
I doubt that he bit his tail because there was more than the usual amount of pellets coming at him at once. Nothing was so drastically changed that could have caused him so much stress, so maybe he's turning into a tail biter. Or perhaps he didn't bite it? Could something else have torn his tail?
that sound odd, my mate mess up the feeding of are bettas evey now and then and none of them have evern done this. Id say check you pot thats in his tank terracotta is know to fractur and crack from time to time. just putting it out there. best of wishs for you.
Ther is nothing on tv... time to watch the fish tank. Bettas hours of fun.
Hey thanks for your replies the pot in there isn't real terracotta, it's like a moulded plastic, I ran some nylons over it and through the middle before I put it in. He's a moody boy most of the time, my other half says he's like an old man. The reason I thought this was why he'd bitten himself is because last time it happened was a fast day.
