I had a betta who would repeatedly lunge for my fingertips if when it was feeding time, since I fed pellets by sticking them to my fingertip and dropping them into the water. I think for some, feeding time just brings out their inner aggressiveness.
He's only grabbed onto the straw. He's never actually latched on to my finger (though he always tries!). I have, fortunately for both of us, pulled my fingers away in time! I say fortunately for both of us because my instinct would be to pull my hand away and shake it, and if he was biting on to it he would be flung across the room!Does it hurt at all, or can u feel it if a Betta bites ur finger?
mine will come and take food from my fingers. hes never tried to bite or jump at my hand or anything.
Yeah I need to track one of those down (actually a few of them now that I have the flourish). Not sure where you can buy them.You could try feeding him with a pipette or small eye dropper instead of a straw.
:-D Oh, another horse, dog, and fish household!! Me too!!!You can find them on eBay. I bought mine when I got a bunch of stuff from Foster & Smith. They have the best prices on Seachem products and it doesn't take much between our horse, fish and dog supplies to make their $49 free shipping.
Yep.:-D Oh, another horse, dog, and fish household!! Me too!!!
Peas DO NOT help with digestion. Bettas are carnivores so their digestive track can't digest plant protein so what ends up happening when you feed a pea is that it travels through his body in one large chuck and that could rip the lining of his digestive track. Feed him daphnia insteadThey help with constipation. Or you can use gel food.
You have impeccable taste in pets!!:-DYep.

The past six months have been really rough as we had to euthanize our three elderly German Shorthaired Pointers.: Loretta, Pearl and Joe.
this is a misconception. Bettas are carnivores so their digestive track can't digest plant protein so what ends up happening when you feed a pea is that it travels through his body in one large chuck and that could rip the lining of his digestive track. Feed him frozen daphnia instead if he is bloated.I've heard to feed peas to Betta everywhere by a ton of people when they look bloated/constipated. why shouldn't they be fed a pea once in a while?
