The smaller the easier. Unless they're psycho like Anderson who looks everywhere but where the food is. He's not blind or anything. Just kinda . . . dumb.

No, Azure's pretty smart, just the old age is blinding him, ppor guy.. He sounds like a reject betta... Or a Stephen hawking of bettas actually.. Smart but no fins and blind... He knows where the ripples in the water are (from the spoon), that's where the food is. He swims into the cup on his own too, he's practically waiting for it to scoop him up XD

What a good, cooperative guy. Anderson swims into the cup on his own too but I think because he doesn't even realize it's there. Poor Anderson, he's definitely not as bright as his namesake. My girls have to be chased all over the place before I can cup them.

My girls are too fast for me XD They get in the cup and zip right out! So annoying!! Lol, I love silly bettas, I think Tranny is one of them.. e flares at the feeding spoon hehehe... Azure knows when it's time for the cup. I tap on the glass once and he'll come out to the middle and top of the bowl from where he is and wait for the cup. Then I fill some water in the cup and he just swims in! He makes me so proud! *sniff*

And who says you can't train bettas and that fish are stupid? Go Azure! I have to trap my girls in the cup up against the side of the glass and wait for them to swim to the back of the cup so I can tilt it upright. When I feed pellets I have to take Wanda out and give her special small pellets. Fortunately at feeding time it's easy to catch her because they're all right there, hopping over each other.

That's true, feeding time has them engrossed.. Sometimes i use a transparent cup and wait patiently, that works too lol! They swim in unknowingly.. Tranny just flares at the cup and shows off so he's pretty easy to catch XD...
Yeah, they should have him as a subject to prove fish can be smart!

I can picture Tranny flaring away. Sherman is ridiculously easy to catch because he can't swim with that big tail of his. But as hard the girls are to catch, the cories were harder. They're on the bottom so I have to dip the cup all the way down and chase them to the top. I hate to use a net though becaue the cories have spines that can catch on a net and harm them.

I almost wish Sherm would nom part of his tail off. Seriously, it's like a 4 foot tall woman with Dolly Parton boobs. Can I say boobs here? Ooops, did anyway, huh.

Lol! Now I'm imagining a betta with boobs... I don't know why XD
I've given Azure 2 doses so far and I think it's really helping him... For one thing he's making bubbles! He hasn't done that for months and months! I was wondering how I would know that the parasites are gone completely? So that know whether I should repeat the medication or not...
