Maybe take the baffle off for a few hours and let the filter really circulate things. Hydra won't hurt grown bettas, that's true. They're only a concern if you have fry because the hydra can wrap their tentacles around the fry. But I don't blame you, I don't care how harmless the things are, they're disgusting. I'd want them out, too.

Thanks Sakura, I don't know how to get rid of them. Lots of water changes maybe. It is good to hear it wont hurt my Betta. This must be the reason he has not been eating like usual, the last two days. He's eating the Hydra!!!

Yup. I guess that's how you get rid of them: let your betta eat them! And you can help him out with a water change/gravel vacuum. Live foods are the best so your betta must be pretty happy right now, nomming away. =]

Do you think there is any nutrition in them? I was worried because he seemed to have lost his appetite the last two days. I hadn't realized the white stuff was alive then. Maybe you can help me out. How can you tell if your Betta is sleeping? I am sure they must sleep, don't they?

I'm sure there's some nutrition in them. I'm not so sure about vitamins and all that but there must be some protein.

It can be really hard to tell when your betta is sleeping. Sometimes they lay on the bottom of the tank and look dead. O.O Scares the heck out of people. Other bettas perch in their plants to sleep. Mostly, if they are really still for a long time but their gills are moving slowly, then they're asleep. I never see my bettas sleeping, altough I used to.
