There's a parallel thread about biting going on right now. It's very funny.
That pic reminds me of such a close-up of a bug.. Like when SPongebob was in Sandy's dome and a butterfly landed on his water bowl.. The up close was horrifying! This betta pic is strange! But wow had no idea they had little "teeth". Bowser will jump out of water to bite, bc he relates my finger to the paintbrush I give them wormies on but he backs up if I put my finger IN the water!
Ludendorff has become quite the fighter. He latches on and tugs, it does not hurt but I can see why he takes mouthfuls
of worms at a time! He's a big strong boy! Must be his genes (he's from Asia ^.^)
