My girls are so fat!

Either they're healthy or gluttons. I do not know what to do because I cant feed my other fish while the bettas are around, cuz they're fatties. Artemis tries to steal the crickets from my puffer...shes grown three times her size since I got her last month. And Ruby...shes just huge! Any ideas of how to keep them from eating while I can still feed the other fish?

Could you quarantine the bettas during feeding time?

Well I have a breeder, bt I don't wanna use it in different tanks, and I really don't wanna have to do that every feeding time. That's a lot of stress...

Maybe you could add a simple divider that you could take in and out during feeding.

I agree with the divider idea.

I do put mine in a breeding cup that floats in his tank for the same reason. I just scoop him in and he floats all around like he's on a lil cruise. I feed him in it too so it's less stressful and he looks forward to it. For more then one, I'd go with the divider idea though.
