    Hey guys,

    My betta Poseidon is such a little porker! Lol; he always on the floors trying to find and possible scraps but there's none because I'm so careful about feeding "eye-ball" size portions.

    Do you have betta that bottom feed too?

    All it really takes to feed a betta is 6-7 pellets a day. I break it down to 2 portions, 3 or 4 pellets each time.

    Actually no lol! I bet it looks cute though, can you share a video?

    I feed mine 3 pellets once a day, and he jumps out of the water a little to try to snatch the pellets from my fingers lol!

    Ya, that's what I feed him. But he still is always sniffing around the bottom hoping to find stuff. :p you'd think I'm starving the guy.

    Wait I read Dom's post wrong. I feed 4 pellets a day; 2 in morning and evening.

    Anyway, I can't seem to attach a video so I'll post pictures. He's hard to catch because he likes to move a lot.

    :p Ya, poor guy. Such high hopes only to be disappointed.

    I have a new class of betta; top dweller/occasional bottom feeder.

    I know right! But mine is annoying me right now because he insists on sitting on this certain plant to blow his bubble nests and relax but the plant seems to be causing huge rips in his beautiful fins! :/

    I might soon, but he just loves it so much that I feel guilty about it! But I'm giving him a betta hammock, maybe he'll like that better.

    Oops, hijacking your thread, sorry! ;D

    I have two betta hammocks. My 2 males that since passed used them, but are wasted when I try to put the hammock in the tank with my gal. Michonne is not pleased to have a bed in her tank.
