Force Feeding Bettas

Have any of you had to do this? I have a fish who refuses to eat unless I mash his food up up with water and feed him via syringe. He is otherwise perfectly healthy and happy, but won't eat unless I inject the food into his mouth.

I have NEVER heard of that. Interesting! I have the opposite problem. Sometimes I have to net my juveniles who start choking on blood worms and literally pull the blood worm out of their mouths. -_-

That's so odd! All my fish would eat themselves to death if I let them. I'd love to see a video of this process if you could post one!
