Ghost just ate some itty bitty live brine shrimp! Hooray for sea monkeys! The ramen noodles of the fish food industry!!
He's chasing them around and having a blast gobbling them up! AND he's NOT spitting them out!
So I guess my "betta psychology" technique of giving him "baby food" worked! I suggest if you're still having trouble to pick up some of those eggs and start hatching them ASAP! Even my other betta, Thor, couldn't resist. He was watching Ghost and getting all excited that something delicious was floating in his tank, so I had to give some to him as well. Both fish are happy and excited to be chasing the little critters.
Thanks everyone for your support over these last 3 weeks. It's so nice to see Ghost gobbling away, content and excited.
Best of luck to the rest of you!
