Thanks. I just have this horrible feeling that she isn't going to get better. She has NO sign of illness except lethargy and clamped fins. Since she now has a heater, the water temp shouldn't be the problem.

A few of mine like to circle their pellet's, then flare at them, then finally attack them....Making a game of eating....hehe Very cute. :)

Oh ya...And Mr Brooks attacks plants that get in his way, snapping at them & flaring. He hates plants. lol

One of my bettas teases my sisters kitten on purpose. He will flare when he sees the kitten and when the kitten pounces at the glass he runs and "hides" for a minute or two and then will do the whole thing over again for as long as the kitten is watching (there is no way for the kitten to get into the tank so I know he is safe).

Tango gets an alternating diet of frozen bloodworms or Atison's pellets. On pellet day he always dodges around the pellets and gives me a look like.. "PELLETS!?!?!?! Surely you jest!" He'll hold off on eating them for a good minute, which is an eternity for him, just hoping that there's been some terrible mistake. I love my old man.

Bravo skips across the water like a skipping stone when he knows I'm coming to give him food. He then jumps on the food before he eats it. So cute!

Betta wiggles :D and Zim is a dork when it comes to eating food. He gets so excited over my finger that he lunges for it a million times and misses the pellet. And if I walk away he follows me, totally oblivious to the food right above his head!

My betta used to attack the food, but he has matured. One day I saw him swimming up the little bridge that I have in his tank.
