My betta did something similar last night. I cut a pea in half and dropped it for his snail tankmate. Of course, the betta saw it drop and chased after it, and ate it. The piece was too big for him, and it looked like he couldnt close his mouth completely after he swallowed it. His gills were flapping really heavily and he was laying on bottom of the tank. He looks a little better today but it seems like this is a legitimate problem these fish have. But it makes you wonder, this stuff must happen in the wild all the time, right? I mean, maybe not eating peas, but I doubt these fish know how big is too big for bites of food.

Very glad to hear the little guy pulled through. I have heard of people using small tweezers to remove gravel from goldfish mouths, but thankfully I have never had to try it.

This is a pretty old thread that has already been resolved. Not trying to be rude at all, but it is bad forum manners to post on old threads. It pushes more relevent threads down, so in the future check the date. Thanks :)

I had something to share and I shared it. That's what this forum is for. I don't find what I did rude at all - perhaps you need to re-define what constitutes "bad manners."

I'm well aware of the dates on the other posts, so please relax.

I didn't say what you did was rude, and I was just trying to let you know that it is generally bad forum manners to resurrect old threads. You don't have to be snippy.
