Hi there! My betta Frankenstein is blind I believe. He is in a 10 gallon filtered tank with 5 tetras (recommended from petco) and 2 snails. When I feed Frank his pellets he gobs at water missing them completely most times. Hes better at snatching worms. Im afraid hes not getting enough or any as the tetras come in and bully him away. How do I make sure hes getting his share without dumping all kinds of food in? Which is what is happening

That wont stress him out too much? Im just afraid of killing him by pulling him out so much. He puts on a great chase despite his handicap
It would probably stress him a little, but if he's blind and also has to compete for food and you believe he isn't getting enough, it might be the best option.

You could have a small cup or container and just scoop him into it and float it on the top of the tank while you feed him, that way the temp and water is all the same but he is by himself
