Then again, I've also wondered if it wasn't the heater that was making him like that, so I've also considered taking it out (the weather here in sunny CA is warming up to a point that would make hell look like Antarctica.) I think I'll try that first, since it's tank cleaning day anyway.
Also, I don't think so, NozzALa; Ray Charles is orangey-red and has no eyes, though that fish you heard about sounds pretty!
Oh, yeah, I guess it is probably a common name for blind fish.

I usea feeding ring, which keeps all the food in one place, instead of scattering everywhere. He's learned to associate it with food; that and the sound of the trapdoor lids closing is also my bettas dinner bell, so when he hears that, he'll swim up to the feeding ring. In addition, anything he doesn't eat will fall to the tank bottom, and all day long I can see him nosing around like a pig hunting for truffle, looking for leftovers!
Lol, I told my boyfriend and he said it with out batting an eye; in the end, it just seemed to fit.
