1fish, hahaha. Tip: to show that you are sobbing, put it like this *sob* or -sob-. I did drop my iTouch charger in water by accident. Dried it off, still works.
1fishBlue, could be the pellet is too big. Try crushing it in half and see if he does that again. Because they don't really chew but just swallow, if a betta gets hold of his food wrong, sometimes he has to spit it out and pick it up differently so he can swallow.
Miah: Well, all animals are cuter when they're smaller. :) I hope he doesn't eat Kia. How's Echo doing?
Amph, that sounds like an awesome project.
Off to eat dinner, be back in a moment.
