Yep because he won't know what is happening. I'd be scared too if I were blind and then suddenly the walls closed in x.x

Same here, never really thought about it XD

I've moved him into a cycled 5 gallon so I wont need to change the water as much so less panic for him. Also going to throw in some of my yellow shrimp to pick up any food he misses ^^

good idea and then you don't have to take him out of the tank for water changes

not true. :V Theo never flipped out. he was my easiest betta to cup, and never panicked at all. i'd scoop him into the cup, and he'd be like "okay", and swim about.

well, SOME might flip out xD Even the ones I have who are not blind, about half freak out... My friend's freaks out xD But as a precaution (for any betta) cover the top lol. Some bail - blind or not.
Sarah hates being in 1.5 gallons of water for her quarantine she smashes herself against the side of the tub x.x some just hate small spaces I guess.

So long as he isnt surprised AND hungry I'll be ok with it. I dont have enough cherries yet for him to be chewing down on them XD





My guy (Still unnamed D:) seems to be pretty laid back when I cup him, though he gets really still. Almost like he's panicking. When the cup stops moving he;s back to normal though ^^

I really need to think of a name for him XD
