Quick question.

Alright I have a question Ive been meaning to ask but I keep forgetting. When you guys feed your bettas do you just throw 2-3 pellets in and let them eat at their own pace, or do you feed one wait until they chew and swallow them give them the next. Because these little fishies seem to think if they dont swallow them right away they will disappear I used to feed them one pellet at a time and wait but Ive been gettin lazy lately and just dropped the 3 three in simotaniously. But they just inhale them and it cant be good.

Yeah, I go one at a time, but because it's way to much fun to hold the food over the water and make the betta jump before I drop it in

Alright I guess Ill try to be less lazy and feed one at a time, what I like to do if Im not lazy is feed one to Snowflake then one to Kingdra then one to Marina and repeat.This gives alot of time in between. I still do that but in the morning I dont even want to stand up soo I get sloppy.

I tried to get another betta today, I told my mom I needed to go out to get "shrimp pellets" Which I really did but that was my background motive. But my mom saw through my front and took me to the store that never has good bettas But Im starting to drive myself so next time she goes somewhere for a little while shes going to come home to a room full of bettas, and a few hairless guinea pigs because I discovered she thinks they're ugly.

haha! i love hairless animals. I have 2 hairless dogs, a chinese crested and a xolo mix. I was looking into getting a guinea pig and discovered Skinny Pigs while researching guinea pigs online and almost lost it! i totally want one.

There are like six of them at the store, one of them is completely except a patch of orange hair (like a red head) on top of his nose and he has bright red eyes. It is the ugliest on in there, which in its own way made it the cutest. If I could keep one in my 20g I would but I dont think that's work

Ohh and Ive never heard of a hairless dog, sounds kinda creepy.
