My plakat is a little pig and eats everything off the bottom. Once he spent an hour trying to pick a blood worm off the gravel XD but my other bettas look at me like they're saying... "Uhm... Do you actually expect me to eat THAT? It's been on the FLOOR of my aquarium."

Didn't know I was called here, haha.

Mine RECENTLY started eating off the bottom. No real explanation...I added a couple smaller plants and he seemed to like playing down there. The next accident involving a falling pellet including him actually NOTICING it (30 minutes later, haha...) when he went back to his play-pen. Now he occasionally scavenges the bottom.

But other than that...it's possibly instinct? When in doubt, point fingers at instinct. Haha.

I used to have a female that would ONLY eat off the bottom...she totally refused pellets when they were still floating. Bettas are weird like that.

After I added her to my sorority, my other girls learned from her to check the bottom for food! Little piggies.
