Attack betta!

I have the flu so my reflexes are WAY off. I was just feeding Kilo and I guess I wasn't doing it fast enough. The big monster jumped about two inches out of the water and hit the thumb I was using to hold his lid up. I screamed and dropped the lid like a big sissy, like he was a piranha or somethin. So I geared myself up and tried a second time and he did it again. I can just imagine what it's gonna be like when he's another inch bigger. Monster fish!

Haha. My betta only jumps when I hold the bloodworms above his tank.

That's what I get for calling him a big froo froo softie fish. Lol. Maybe I should have named him Jaws.

LOL.. Freddie jumped out and BIT me one time when I was trying to move a piece of his plant that was sticking out of the water.. he actually bit me!!!! I was so freaked out, I'm such a sissy I can't even touch my fish (I mean I could if it were an emergency.. but I'd still be freaked out).

This made me laugh out loud! Chance will jump up and actually clamp down on my finger if I don't feed him fast enough haha. Haze jumps but won't bite. Fishy now will attack my fingers and I've only had him for 3 days!

Oh great, now I'm going to be skittish about being clamped upon. Lol! You guys make me laugh. I've never had to grab one of these guys but there's an old story my Mom tells about finding me on our front steps giving mouth to mouth to a goldfish so apparently I can and will pick one up.

All I gotta say is.. I didn't know they could bite so hard!.. I mean it didn't hurt but if Freddie were the size of a dog I'd be missing a finger! I don't think I'll ever be brave enough to hand feed them.
