As much as I love Christmas, it's causing me a bit of anxiety this year. All of the extended family comes over to my family's house for Christmas dinner, which will be interesting because its the first year I'll have the fish around. We'll have several kids over, which doesn't bug me - what does is that a couple kid's parents don't believe in discipline. So all of the fish food is going away, signs are being put up that tell people not to tap on the glass, and I'm seriously considering taping all lids/openings shut to avoid any accidents.
I'll probably not feed any of them that day in case the kids want to feed them, so then We can get out the food on my terms and the kids can help me feed the fish. I can see them getting a kick out of watching my bettas eat - especially the female, who will easily jump a good couple of inches out of the water to grab a pellet off my finger. I'm also preparing responses for the adults and kids alike as to why my bettas are in such "big" tanks and why they all look so active and interesting while their's all died in a week.
Anyone else making special preparations for their fish for the holiday?
