Thanks guys! :)
I'll look for a feeding ring at the LPS :)
I just fed him a few min. ago, and if I wiggle my finger in the water he'll swim right over :D Hopefully, I can continue feeding him this way X]
The poor guy's starting to build a bubble nest (though it keeps drifting apart)... I feel really bad that he's never gonna find use for that bubble nest XD
Also, I think his ventral fins didn't grow right, 'cause they're all crumpled and deformed looking...
I'm thinking starting a journal for the whole betta gang :)

blind bettas are a handful. i owned one a few years back, and it was hard at first. easiest way to care for them is to not rearrange the tank too much and train him to eat from a feeding ring, if he can see at all. Theo was trained to go to one corner of his tank when he heard the divider i used as a lid scrap against his tank. :U

He (still un-named XD ) build his first bubble nest! I guess he's not as helpless as I thought :)

Oh that is so so awesome! He's sure got spunk!

For a feeding ring you could just use the top of a styrofoam cup. Just cut the top half inch off and it'll float in the water. You could tape or tie it to one corner. I use these rings to give my boys a place to nest, they love them, but it would work for feeding, I would think.

Okay, I'll try it first with the styrofoam cup, and if I really have to I'll just go buy a feeding ring :) he seems to be doing okay
