What was I thinking (actually what was my local pet store thinking!!).....I am sitting here and Purplely is just eating and eating. I start surfing this page (is there a search function?) and read Betta's will eat until their stomachs explode. Not sure if this is true but his little belly is looking pretty bid right now.
I do not have a tank suction vaccum so I started looking for some sort of tubing that I could use to suck up the worms. I wanted to suck them up somehow because if I tried to scoop them up they would have gone everywhere in the tank. I pulled out my wifes "pampered chief" turkey baster and was just about ready to start sucking up the worms and thought if she caught me with that in the tank I might not hear the end of it.....then it hit me. A simple straw!! I held the top so the air would stay in the straw and then went up to the clump of worms and removed my finger. After about 10 times I pulled out all of the worms! It worked in a pinch!!
Looks like I will be cleaning up poo Saturday morning before we leave so the tank is not too dirty when we get back next Saturday...what a huge mistake!!!!!!!!!
One side of me wants to call the shop and complain. I did say I had only ONE Betta!! Next time I will have to cut a quarter (if that) of the frozen pellet (it is in a foil wrapper and just a little cube the size of a dice).
