Several days ago I posted a couple threads about our mysterious failure with our first Betta and our second go-round.
Here is an update. The second Betta, Avatar (I still hate that name, but I've lost, I fold
), is doing wonderfully. He's formed a nice big bubble-nest up in the corner of the tank by the filter and is very active.
I do have a question, though. Avatar is a pig. Everyone says to feed Bettas two or three times a day, two to three pellets each time. But Avatar munches down four pellets in 10 seconds and then looks back at us like, "What else you got?"
So, if the rules of thumb of "2-3 pellets at a meal" and "what they can eat in 30 seconds" are in conflict, which wins? I would estimate that this dude could chow six pellets in about 30 seconds without a problem, just judging by what we have seen.
Thanks for all the help. Folks in this forum have been great.
