I wouldn't do that. One person accedentially did and she bloated seriously but eventually recovered.

Tricking them with food or trying to suck them up with a vac?

If you meant me, it's just a pellet on the surface so I can get them before they get the pellet (dont want them choking if they panic) and they get the pellet after they're in the cup.

The pressure or lack thereof causes fluid to accumulate. Here's the thread- http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=127278

Well luckily we have Micro in custody unharmed. May be small but fast and feisty. Almost gave up. Its funny how the peace in my sorority tank evaporated after alpha Mary was removed and new girls were introduced. Lots of girls want to be top dog.

Really? Make sure not to shock her during water changes because she is so tiny! I would drip the water in.

Looking forward to pics of the lil' gal once she's settled =) Grats on catchnig her unharmed!

And I know just how fast they can be! The stud I have caged in the sorority jumped the fence after a wc and I spent a good half hour getting him in a cup and back in his pen!

Your poor girls, though I think Sylvannas can understand. I dont think bigger girls like being harassed by so many little ones. My big girl will be happy back in her own tank soon.

That is good info Matt. I never thought about decompression. I have her in a large 2.o l jar inside the warm tub with a pinch of epson salt just in case. . No sign of external damage or bloating. I will keep a close eye on her and add microworms in the morning. She is hanging out at the surface and ive never her seen her do that before any change in behavior concerns me.
