I did once try to feed Arthur some crushed pea, back when I thought this was an ok way to relieve constipation. I thought he looked a little bloated. I didn't really know much about Bettas, and Arthur just seems to have a body shape designed to confuse me. Now I have my other fish, I realise that he's just quite naturally slim-bodied and his slightly-distended belly after eating is quite normal.

Unfortunately, crushing a pea is harder than it sounds. I didn't get the pieces small enough and, piggy that he is, he munched about half a pea or something ridiculous in one go.

Then I realised what bloated actually was. He moped about for a full three days on his plants looking like a little round Betta-balloon until it finally cleared through his system.

That was my first and last attempt at the pea thing. Now I just feed occasional daphnia.

I accidentally screwed up paypal and sent someone who was sending me a betta the wrong address, the poor fish spent 4 days in shipping instead of two, luckily she arrive no worse for wear, and ended up fine.

I've dropped Neko and Nishibi they had to soak in water(treated water) before they could go back in their tank. This was to get Guinea Pig and/or Dog fur off them.

I've accidentally squished Rosie many times. It's not serious but it scares me.

I tried to introduce a female guppy into the tank with my male betta Alfy. I kept her for 2 weeks in a quarantine tank and all seemed fine so I moved her into the tank with Alfy. He chased her all over the tank, flaring at her, trying to attack her. After less than 10 minutes I had to net the guppy and move her back into the quarantine tank so Alfy didn't kill her. I know someone at work who has a tank of guppies, so I was going to ask her if she wanted another, but the guppy died before I could talk to my coworker.

The betta was, and still is, perfectly fine. I learned a lesson, Alfy is perfectly happy being alone in his tank. Trying to add another fish was admittedly for me, not him. I mistakenly thought Alfy and the guppy wouldn't care about each other, and that the tank would look nicer with more than one fish. Something I'm not going to try again.
