Polkadot Did water changes for Captain and Lotus. Also took some lace fern (which is growing very fast & beautifully) from Captain's tank and put some more in for Shiloh and Baron.They are all very happy little boys!

I don't fast mine either. There have been no scientific studies to show it has any positive effect so I don't see the point. All mine get fed once a day until their bellies are a little round.

PrincessSeyshells Mostly what mingking said for me as well. My last betta was very prone to bloating, so I guess it's just a habit from that. :P

I do it as to make sure I'm not overfeeding them. Especially when I see a little bump under my bettas.

Although, I've only been told to do this and read on forums. I'm sure other members have better answers XD

Today I planted my amazon sword, did water changes, and found out my driftwood is STILL NOT WATERLOGGED!! Argh!

PrincessSeyshells Nothing. It's poor Sammy's fasting day. I did stick my finger in her tank today just to see what she would do...does that count? Haha. Tomorrow, most of my plants and the sponge filter for Sammy's five gallon should arrive in the mail so I'll be super busy then. Can't wait!

kitkat67 Bought a large bundle of Argentine sword, two more rabbit snails, and did a huge water change.

bettafishsam Set up a new breeding tank, put almond leaves into every tank, planted new ferns in my females, introduced a koi female to my cycled 2.5, introduced a opuque female to my sorority, redesigned my sorority, fed my breeding pair blood worms, altered my 2.5 tanks filter, water changed my gallon tank.

Crash Gave everyone some live blackworms, especially since Renji has been a butt since I moved him into the shallow 10 gallon

He keeps surfing the glass at the front of the tank, and swims against the corner when he knows I'm over to feed him, but doesn't eat the pellets cause he doesn't pay attention to where I drop them; ugh! So he's pretty much been near starving himself for the past week he still has some worms left over in the bottom for later at least, and he ate quite a few!

Also moved my 5.5 gallon to my desk and made it a nice home for my new baby rabbit snails They're eating the blanched green pepper I put in there for them earlier right now, so adorable!

Crossroads Fed the finbabies as usual at lights on.
Merida, Malarkey and Ky got bits of Ocean Nutrition Formula One (my last block T~T)
The community got the rest of the block plus a mix of bloodworms, daphnia and spirulina brine shrimp. Slices of cucumber were also added for the snails.
Rearranged some of the plants in the back and scrubbed a bit of diatoms from my front glass. Added more IAL to the tank.
