And before you ask, no, my fish is not going to be celebrating Ramadan. (But Ramadan mubarak to those who are!)
I recently brought a betta fish into my office, to have some company at my lonely desk. I've only had him since Monday, and he seems to be doing just peachy. I generally feed him when I come in in the morning and right before I leave in the afternoon, with maybe a bloodworm around lunch for a treat. Little guy eats like a horse (I give him about five Hikari pellets each feeding, and he never leaves anything untouched and actually skims the surface for a bit looking for more), which makes me wonder how well he'll handle not eating for two days.
I don't want to take him home every weekend only to bring him back on Monday; my commute is pretty long and that cycle of transferring containers would be so stressful for him. But at the same time, given how well he eats, I'm wondering if that two-day fast will be stressful as well.
Should I invest in a pack of those vacation feeders and just bust them in half? Feed him a little extra on Friday? Or do you think he'll be all right going two days without food?
