I think I would prob of tried the same thing! Im a mother to a 4 year old lil boy & 3 pit bulls. If they were to choke that's what I would do so I guess it comes naturally! As far as pellets being 2 big. Mine r super small put r still to big for my lil girls. Havent had them choke yet but I will start breaking them into smaller pieces from now on!

My monster girl, Baby Blue, does a cute shimmy+swimmy greeting when I come over to her tank and talk to her. She'll open her mouth quickly several times while she's greeting me. It's not a yawn... I've seen her do that.... She makes her mouth a big round "O".

Ive never heard mine chew there food. But the other day I gave my CT some blood worms & my VT was trying to get them thru the divider & u could hear his lips smacking on the divider as he was trying to attack the food. It was pretty funny!

I just fed mine a pellet and listened closely, and you're right! It is actually pretty loud. Funny!

Maybe your fish just have better dining etiquette than ours do and chew more quietly. Ha!

I love your avatar, by the way! Makes me smile each time I see it.
