    Well, I haven't had one to jump out of the tank but I knocked one on the floor during cleaning. It scared the daylights out of me! I put him back in the water and he was fine.

    Hi Drama - back online again! I have a question for you! I have a really tiny femaie - named Sprite. She is just adorable - very feisty and full of energy. I have had her for around 4 months. Well yesterday during their feeding time - she just flew out of her aquarium! I was shocked - I mean she sailed over 2 other tanks and then hit the floor! My heart was pounding - the kids heard me screaming! I reacted as fast as I could scooped her up and back into her home! I just could not believe it! Thank God today she seems to be Ok and back to her self. Have you ever had this happen to you?

    I'm glad you got a new fish. :) Yeah, you could try not feedint them for a couple days and then try the pellets again. Its worth a try.

    Hi DQ! Guess what! My daughter came home on Saturday with ANOTHER fish for me !
    FLAME came from the same store that PRISM came from - Now the 2 of them are on hunger strikes! They only want live Blood worms! We found out that the store they were bought in only feeds them those. I tried the dried brine shrimp but the little devils only want live wiggling food! They take it in for a few seconds then spit it back out!! I am in a panic due to our vacation. ( out pet sitter - my brother law - will not be bothered feeding them the live worms) If I dont feed them for a couple of days will they be more receptive to the pellets etc.? Thank you! FM

    You can also feed him daphnia and brine shrimp. I feed mine Hikari brine shrimp. It comes in cubes and you can crush them up and feed the pieces to your fish.

    Hi - It's the Fish Momma checking in! It took a little over a month - but now since the death of ICE. I had lots of information from you guys and all of your help in looking for a healthy betta.... I now have 4 new ones!! I have a crowntail - named SMAUG! crazy eater - building weekly bubble nests!! He actually gets excited when I come close to his tank! "Butters" a lovely yellow delta tail - kinda shy but coming around - beautiful longs fins! "Tinker Bell" a cute bright green female - real spunky and feisty! She snaps her food off the top of the water, and "PRISM" a really different looking delta - kind of grayish light rainbow colors with beautiful long iridescent fins! He is the newest and most fussy - He only likes bloodworms - the pet store said that is all they fed him. I am trying to get him to eat some pellets or flakes but so far no luck! Any suggestions??

    No, you can't always tell but if the fins are shorter and the fish is small it usually means it is younger. I like crowntails and halfmoons. I don't have any halfmoons though. I can't find any where I live.

    You're welcome.You also want to look closely at it to make sure it doesn't have white spots on it or missing scales or anything that could indicate illness.

    Thank you for the advice! Going on a new fish outing. I liked how you mentioned the activeness - not the color. I tend to go for the color just by nature.
