Well, I've got about three or four questions.
I have frozen bloodworms I feed my betta (and shrimp, but that comes into play on a later question). I've been seeing people that have been training their betta (or encouraging) to jump out of the water for food being held by their fingers. Is it ok to handle frozen bloodworms like that? I looked online and it said there could be allergic reactions like a bug bite, but I think they were talking about live ones. I used my squeezie thing (the name of it eludes me at the moment) and managed to get it on a string of fishing line I put across the tank, and got Little Guy to jump up and grab it. However, the problem was that the worm got stuck on the string and he had to try a second time to get it off (he probably didn't enjoy that) Also, if anyone has been doing that with their betta and using pellets, how exactly did you hold it so that the betta could get it?
I have two live plants an a chunk of wood (from a petsore) in the tank. I noriced yesterday that they have a sort of clear stringy looking film covering them. Is that normal? Is that safe for the fish? And would the shrimp consider it a food source?
How should I go about feeding my shrimp? After I gave my Betta 3 worms (two small) I put some for the shrimps near their spots (I have a funny picture regarding that too). Well, my Betta decided to take one away from thes hrimps, because he's fat, but I don't want him to get sick because of that. Which is why I'm asking how I should feed the shrimp :P
A couple seconds later Little Guy swam up and stole the bloodworm =_= bringing his count to 4. Such a fatty.
