My female Aqua will stare at her food then as it falls she'll grab it and hold it in her mouth swimming around and eventually eat it. Yeah, it's cute.

My Flair doesn't give the food a chance to move or fall. He attacks it as soon as it hits the water. You'd think he didn't get fed or something lol.

Awww that sounds totally cute!

D: My betta will only eat food at the surface. If it sinks, it's good as gone.

LOL Merlin and Fishy do that. Unless they don't see it. But 99% of the time they do. As soon as I put it in it's gone. lol

same, my food is too big for my female, so she loses it, then gets it, then loses it, but eventually she eats it.

mine will sometimes push it up to the top if it has sunk and they will chase it as it falls down to eat it

Mine are the same way, the moment any food touches the water, it's gone. If the food sinks down at all, Berry will go after it! She likes to svavenge on the ground. She picks up any food she finds in the gravel.

Zeus has quickly learned what the food canisters look like. If it is pellets he stays half way down in the tank until it hits the water then charges the surface gulping them down, then floats down and waits for the 2nd one.

If it is blood worms or daphnia he stays at the surface trying to eat it before it even hits the water.
