Hand feeding =)

Does anyone here hand feed their bettas? I do with my two boys because Alex is kinda odd and won't go near his food unless I hand feed him. He also just won't eat if I don't feed him so we take him with when we go on vacations now xD Riley is pretty much just like Alex except he doesn't care who feeds him as long as he gets fed lol! So just curouis on who hand feeds their bettas and who doesn't =)

What do you mean by hand feed? I always drop my pellets in one at a time.

My old betta sadly died (Chauncey) but I handfed him - he was the gentlest thing, and was really affectionate. Whenever I put my hand in the tank he came up and curled around it. I hand fed him lots of stuff - brine shrimp, and pellets

I like to fingerfeed ... in other words I've taught Deja to chomp my finger ... and THEN she'll get a pellet. She's a very smart little fishy!

:3 I hand feed my fishy. I feed him 3 pellets per day. Saturdays I give him 2 pellets & a bloodworm, and sunday is his official 'no food' day. Lol! I feed him by dunking my finger in the water. He intantly perks up... then i stick the pellet to my wet finger and make him jump for it :D His name is George XD

Totally, the neon tetras used to be super aggressive when it was food time and would eat his pellets.
Now my HM doesn't jump as much, but my VT is really into it. He will happily chew on any finger near the surface. I wet my finger with tank water and put some pellets on it, often they miss...
