Thanks for the info.
I learned from this forum about the peas for bloat and constipation. And of course the first time my Betta crew even looked slightly bloated, I fed a pea according to the directions I had learned here. And all my Bettas, females and males, ate the pea. The girls were looking around for more.
The girls had also eaten pieces of an algae wafer that I had intended for the shrimp and snails. Needles to say, there was nothing left for the snails and shrimp. The girls ate these pieces after they had already been fed brine shrimp.
I learned to day from the invertebrates section of this forum, to put calcium in the tank for the snails shells. So I drop in a calcium tablet of the type recommended, well, what the girls didn't eat, they played with.
They also like tho pull the leaves off the Elodea plants when there board
Well any way, some of the above occurring had me wondering, so I posted the questions.
