Hi! I have always wondered this, but what do bettas do to keep thereselves busy?
I'd love to have some microfauna (other than the snails as their shells are too hard) in my tank to keep my boys occupied when I go on trips. Was the copepod introduction accidental or on purpose?On the topic of betta toys I have a plastic floating lily pad (the base is plastic, the actual plant itself is silk I believe) that I push around with my finger sometimes; Kaze will watch it move and follow it around. Quite sweet.
I also had an outbreak of copepods (aquatic microfauna) and Kaze hunts those through the gravel during the day, as well as randomly pecking at the front of the tank or flaring at me if I press my finger to the glass.
