My Betta has learned how to sabotage the filter. And I can't get him to stop.
I have http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=4239991
for a filter.
As you see in the picture, the water is being sucked up from the bottom, and these holes are perfect size for pellets to get stuck there.
So whenever I try to feed my Betta, he would take the pellet, get close to the filter's intake, and throw up the food. For example today in the morning I fed him 10 pellets (I know it is a lot but), and he ended up eating only 4 and the 6 pellets he threw up and tried to break the filter. He has been doing this for the past 3 days, and he is succeeding at blocking the filter. At first I though that it was a fluke, but he seems to know what he is doing.
I had to clean it today. Any ideas how I can stop him doing that, or why he would do that in the first place?
