Haha, indeed, I usually like to feed bloodworms after I do WCs....good to know I'm not the only one that makes that connection xD
lol, how cute! I've been looking for a plastic egg from my brothers room to try with Nova or Wally....so far, no luck D: I need to go get some ping pong balls...I tried a marble in my bare bottom 5 gallon, but Smore seems unamused and my mom came in and commented '....You've been a bad fish, you only get one marble'
I switch Aya and Celestine in and out of the breeder so neither is stuck in it for long. But that way they wont breed lol and I dont need to get a new tank. Happily enough the only problem I have with the tank is that they go through a little bout of boredom being in it which can easily be fixed by putting my face by the tank which gets their attention quickly.
And yea, I had problems with Aya jumping out of the breeders thing and going after Celes in the middle of the night. The lid quickly fixed that problem lol. We had a pure white goldfish named Sesshomaru, and one night he committed fishie suicide because we had no lid. Lids = <3
Hmm....you should get another tank anyway, kritter keepers work great. 2 gallons is really the minimum for one betta...and even with switching them out, its not healthy to have two in such a small space....also, the problem you'd have would be more along the lines of one killing the other, rather then them breeding.
Go snag a medium kritter keeper, their not that expensive, and one of those Hydro mini heaters. Trust me, your bettas will be much happier with the extra space AND you'll have room for a ping pong ball or something of the like ^-^
I got one of those mini heaters in there now, and I swear it stopped working. I got a vase which I could switch one into, but with it not being heated and all I thought it would be best to keep them in a heated tank.
And yea we were sad to see Sessy go, but we learned never to buy white fish/animals (had a friend with a guinea pig) and named them after semi evil charcs lol. They all want to kill themselves.
Frozen has two problems: 1) it is less nutritious than live, and 2) you have to keep it in the freezer.
Freeze-drying preserves most of the nutrients in the food, without the problems of parasites (the process kills any that might be present). Also, once in the water, the freeze-dried worms seem more like live ones. They quickly absorb the water and resemble live worms.
I use freezedried and frozen foods. It is faster for me to feed freezedried because my fish are a little slow to see the frozen foods lol.
