Mine started nipping a lot after I fed them by hand. I've never had one bite quite that much, though! Usually, the female nips and darts away. The male will bite and try to shake me back and forth like a shark. Either way, it's just a tiny pinch for me! I'm guessing your girl was eager for food, too.

10 gallons, petco king and community fish
1 x 5.5 gallons with shrimp and plants
1 x 5.5 male veil tail with plants

Yeah I feel your pain, my sassy female tiffy does the exact same thing.

Depression is just like a broken bone, they both need medical attention and it's nothing to be ashamed of. Try to write at least ten healthy and positive things that are going on in your life. You will be amazed by how effective this is.

I've been nipped but not very hard. Be careful to keep her tank well covered without gaps fish like that tend to jump the tank. It's best not to encourage jumping for food as this increases the likelyhood they will jump when you don't want them to and they will end up on the floor. I don't mean to be a downer but I've seen many people post about that happening.

One of mine jumped out of the water and bit my finger while I was doing a water change today! At first there was just a weird pinch on my fingertip on the hand holding the gravel vacuum, couldn't figure out what was happening, then there was a splashing sound and suddenly a fish face up at the glass trying to look innocent. I knew my girl got excited for food anytime I opened the lid, but jeez, this is the next level! "NO WATER CHANGES! ONLY FEEDINGS!"

Current bettas: Guinevere (female crowntail), Saga (male HMPK), Dunshire (male super delta)
Past: Wodensfang (male delta), Stormcloak (male halfmoon)

Haha! That's crazy! I've been wondering if they bite but I assumed if they did it wouldn't be too bad since they're small. Very interesting!
