Well I'm beginning to think more and more that that black eye of his is blind, because he constantly misses his pellets and flakes because they are so small. He attacks and is always way off. But even with the regular bloodworms he would spit them out, so I dunno. He's a fussy half blind betta. lol

Some of them do seem to enjoy being as difficult as possible when it comes to eating. But thanks to a fish's lateral line, a blind betta can get along in life just fine. Saix will just have to learn how to find his food by smell instead of sight. I still have no idea what might have caused that eye to turn black like that, though. So weird. Anyway, to help with his food, you may want to consider a garlic supplement like Seachem Garlic Boost. You may have to order it online (fosterandsmithaquatics.com) or an aquarium store might carry it. Save you the trouble of having to mix up garlic juice. And the garlic is a good vitamin supplement, too.

Well for now I can't afford it, and I have plenty of garlic, but it will definitely be thought of again when I have the money. Thank you so much! :)
