Wierdest thing

Well to start off, i feed my bettas outside of thier aquariums, i do so because i dont want the water getting dirty within the week so then when i take out the female to feed her i notice that she starts scooping up the flake food on the bottom! well after the female is done eating i take out my male, he ignores the food ont he botom! i think imma start feeding the female in her tank from now on.

Yeah, even without decaying food fish will still 'relieve' themselves in the tank. You'll have to change your water every week anyway, or more depending on the tank size.

All my labyrinth fish like to creep about the bottom looking for treats! It's kind of funny.

It is pointless to take your fish out to feed them because you are going to have fish waste at the bottom. Not to mention it is stressful on the fish to take them out of their tank everyday. I'd just feed them in the tank and net the food out.

Once in a while a piece might drop to the bottom - but usually Freddy always is waiting & sucks the food right down!

Yep, same with mine. All my girls eat like it's their last meal! it's kind of scary to watch sometimes.

I've actually stopped netting my boys, as it probably scares me more than them :P I use the cups they came in and trap them against the glass, then when they move back a little, I scoop them up. It's made water changes 10x easier.
