My Sparkle has been eating tetramin FLAKES for about 2 months now. Eats them like a little 'piggy' fish
I recently got him Omega One Super Color Floating Pellets. They are considered "small" in size.
I soak the pellets to make them soft. He will take one and go down to the bottom of his silk plants to eat it (I guess). I watch him do this very carefully...I actually saw him "CHEWING" .... WOW
But...after he chews for a while, he spits out some white stuff. I figure he is ready for another pellet, so I jiggle the water with my finger where he normally gets his food and he doesn't zooooom to the spot. When I feed him flakes, he is like a crazy nut .... can't wait for the next flake to be dropped in. Soooo...I end up giving him a few flakes.
I don't understand this pellet action....is it kind of normal?
If this pellet-spit issue keeps up, I will have to do water changes in his 5 gallon tank every other day !!!
YES....I AM OBSESSED WITH MY BETTA
