My betta, Hyperion aka Hyppo, likes his food.
He's also a smart betta. When I feed my ghost shrimp, I make a point of sticking my arm in the tank, so that the pellets sink to the bottom, ideally out of his way. I also feed him at the same time.
The problem is he eats most of the shrimps' share, anyway.
I tried hiding the pellets in the riccia-fluitans covered driftwood, but the other day caught him cork-screwing into it to get at the pellets. He easily gets them off the gravel and in the leaves of the plants.
He even chases the shrimp down (he never eats them!) to make them drop their pellets, so he can eat those too.
I'm worried he's going to get bloated, and my shrimp are getting hungry. Any suggestions to deal with my clever, hungry hungry hyppo?
