I heard my fish chewing tonight!

I did a water change. First of all he kept trying bite my finger while I was support the container I used to reaclimate him. I released him and fed him. He was leaning on the glass of the tank and I could hear him crunching on his food. I have had fish for years before (not bettas) and not once have I ever heard a fish crunching and chewing on it's it's food. It was rather amusing. Nano is a little piggy and he always is looking for more food but we stick to his schedule.

My Chappy (blue CT female) has a habit of circling her food, like a shark, and then moves in for the kill with an audible CHOMP! If that food just happens the be her favorite (anything worm-related) then she drags it to the bottom of her tank and slowly eats it. She's....definitely a carnivore XD

Aww. My fishy Carl ate (for the first time really) like a piggy today. I gave him a couple of blood worms and he stalked it like a shark and then swarm in for the kill. ha ha. We've had him for less than a week and today was the first time he came right up to the top of the tank without being scared. He wasn't even scared of my finger when I stuck it it the water. That made my day today! :)

The one in my avatar chews his omega pellets like crazy and loud too. Not only does he hit the top of the water loud but I can hear the crunching too.

That's so funny. I have never heard any of my fish that I have ever owned chew before. I'm going to try to listen better next time I feed them.

Both of my fish would chew really loud. :)
I trained them to jump for their food & now PW does it by himself.
It is sometimes annoying. :P
