crowntail: My last post "bettas got together..." has everything about the events leading up to this.
Last night i cut 3 pellets in half and fed them to Paul and he was hesitant with the first two but seemed to get used to it and scarfed down the remaining 4. This morning i simply poured out a hand full of pellets and gave him 4-5 of the smallest ones in the bottle. He ate them all. His movement this morning is much better. I have also switched out my heater to one that has a thermostat in it, so his tank is currently 77... as opposed to the 82 it was yesterday. He seems to be doing better again.
