Food & Tank

I know I have to be carefull not to overfeed our bettas, but my goodness, is he ever agressive when he eats. My question about the feeding is: is it normal for him to want more and more and more? He acts like he's starving, course I only feed him 2 times aday. But I do feel bad that he acts like he's starving.

My other question is: there are waterspots on the inside of my tank, how do I clean that? and is it normal?



Thank you everyone. Huggles

Do NOT feel bad; He's NOT starving. Most bettas will eat until they explode. It sounds like you have one of those bettas who thinks the next meal may never come. I wouldn't veer from your path of offering him two meals a day.
As far as water spots on the inside...not sure what you mean by this. You see water spots on the inside of the tank above the water line? If so, that's normal condensation.

Yes, its normal for them to act like they are starving. I feed mine 2 pellets twice a day and that is enough. I have no idea about the water spots. I don't think they are any big deal.

hehe, when he does eat, he attacks it. I'm like OMG and laugh. everytime he sees someone walk by, he's lookn at us like, well? you gonna feed me? lol
the spots are even under the water, when I got the tank goin with the filter thingy, I think I seen bubbles after about 2 or more hours later. when the bubbles went away, spots appeared.
