I Feel The Pellets Are Too Big For Fishy Boris.

    I feel they're too big for him, and I worry that they'll get stuck in his craw (do fish have craws?) or his esophagus, before they get to his stomach. Now, he chews, which I think is charming - and I can hear his chewing! - so that ought to mellow me out.

    Still, being me, I worry. Am I silly? Fishy Boris is my first betta, and he deserves the best life.

    FTR, I give him the prescribed two-three pellets twice per day, sometimes subbing bloodworms. Plus, I make sure he has plenty of clean water. (Heh... little joke there...) 20180519_182137.jpg

    They will chew something up smaller if it fits into their mouth. I wouldn’t worry too much unless he never gets it into his mouth.

    I can hear my little betta chew too, it’s adorable lol. But I wouldn’t worry about it! He will chew it up and break it up into smaller pieces. Mine does it all the time. He’s beautiful, by the way :)
