Thank you, I just want to share this with others because it gives you a different way at looking at depression or any other mental illness. Also yes I do have depression, I take meds and it's under control. Well Jaws is the only one who knows how to do any tricks, he hops for food. I lost my sassy female tiffy who knew many tricks, jumping for food, swimming through a hoop and a tunnel, jumping through a hoop and a few more. Her organs were shutting down because she was three years old. I wanted to find a sad looking betta to spoil asap and ended up taking hamlet home. Hamlet doesn't know any tricks yet, I'm still working on gaining his trust.
Try holding betta food around an inch over the water line and make sure they notice the food. They may not hop the first time, but they soon will learn they need to "catch" the betta food.
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.
