I asked a similar question a while ago. I found a picture of eggy females here. If Starscream looks like this, then I'm guessing she's got eggs.

That's exactly what she looks like! <3 Big, bronzed belly and all! So she's likely got eggs - maybe that's why she's so aggressive with the other girls. Maybe one of our boys will want to be a daddy - ..ooor maybe we should let her drop/reabsorb her eggs this time. I don't think we've got the supplies to care for babies atm.

My betta suddenly doesn't want the food I give it. It took the pellets fine, then past few days he didn't want it anymore. He would eat it, then spit it back out. I heard you could give it a tiny piece of fruit as a treat so I tried giving it a piece of banana. It spat it back out after it tasted it. I don't know what to do. He isn't eating and his fins are getting tight for no reason. How can I get him to eat again? And what other foods can I try besides live food?

How do you get a certain amount of pellets to feed your betta? I've tried wetting my finger and picking out a few, dabbing with a dry finger, but almost always I get more than I need. (Using NLS pellets. :) )

Do not feed your betta vegetable matter. They are carnivorous, and that will throw their digestive tract out of whack. Frozen foods are good, especially the bloodworms. Does your tank have a heater?

Haha, you must have nimbler fingers than I! XD I'll have to give the tweezers a try..And if that doesn't work, a dampened Q-tip might. Its almost time for me to try to feed Watson anyways. Lets see what happens! :]

Heh, well sis didn't believe me when I said I couldn't do it with my fingers and showed me how. :} So all Watson needs to do now is settle in and eat. :)

I have always used the inch per gallon plus 2 extra gallons as a rule for stocking tanks. Can I use this to stock a sorority?
