My bf SERIOUSLY overfed my Betta- Thoughts?
The cable guy came today so my bf thought he was doing my betta a favor by giving him a treat or two to distract him while the cable guy was working behind the tank.
And by treat - I mean he dumped a bunch of pellets into the tank. I came home and saw all this food floating and at the bottom of the tank. I did 90% water change and complete siphon of gravel. I pulled out over 100 pellets. I'm so mad!!!!!!!!! Grrrrrr!!!
Anyway, since I have no idea how much he consumed (he's a known glutton), how long do you think I should fast him?? 2 days? 3 or 4 days?
And, if I notice signs of swollen belly, should I try the crushed pea? Should I try that anyway? Lord knows I don't want to feed him anything else but.....
What would you do?
i have never kept a betta fish, but I just wanted to say I feel your pain.....my old roommate use to love watching them swim around and chase food, so for his drunken entertainment he would feed them 3 or 4 times a night!!!!! ugh.....really glad he failed out....
i hope your betta is going to be ok Romad, I'm sure someone will be along with some helpful advice
Fast him. Don't feed him a pea either, it can damage their digestive system.
Like doggyhog said, fast him for 2 or 3 days and try feeding some daphnia after the fast is over.
Thanks guys. I will fast him for a few days and skip the pea.
As for my bf, i'm thinking of fasting him too. (He's hiding upstairs at the moment LOL).
Thanks for your thoughts. I love my lil guy and will be so sad if this hurt him.
lol! No food for the bf for a few days, then feed HIM some daphnia, too!
He does not deserve daphnia. Unless I can put it in his underwear (or something similar).
Some baby brine shrimp in his beer? :lol:
