Darn that betta! Tricking me into almost feeding his friend too much!! D:

I cut down on his food to 10 pellets a day and he still comes to the side of the bowl. He always does that when he knows he'll get food. He comes to the side of the bowl and then to the surface and gets his food when it's feeding time. He only does that when it's feeding time (I've spied on him XD) That fattie one...

I kinda feel sorry for the guy cause he was so thin when I got him (should rather say "rescued"). He got a lot bigger in this less than a week I've had him (almost 30-40% bigger) and his fins look brighter and he's been leaving bubbles at the top of his bowl.

I think 10 is still too much.... 4 a day is enough.

Easy come, easy go.

Welcome! What I like to do to keep track of that sort of thing is make a blog. Like on Blogger, livejournal, or those other sites, there's a bunch. You can either leave it public or make it private like a diary sort of thing. Have fun on the forums!

You will always be my best friend, .
