Yeah. I've had my current betta for over 6 months now, and to tell you the truth, MY BETTA, has always been good about keeping the bottom of his tank clean, whether or not there exist any other fish. I also suspect that MY BETTA has a good sense of smell. I've seen him hunt down hiding pellets with quick accuracy. Smell is the only thing I could think of because he swims to the area and then starts looking.(yes sometimes he watches the pellet fall, but not every time) If this is indeed the case than darkness will not protect Cory fish food!!!! Maybe against the small fish, but THEY can only eat scraps anyway. My betta can eat an entire disc, hard or soft; and THE BETTA don't care if he's just been fed pellets! This is going to get interesting! For the time being; all fish appear quite happy.... and slightly round after feedings.
I'm just wondering if I still need to buy FISH specific food or just feed all the guys flakes and throw in a freeze dried worm once in a while...... I mean if the BETTA is going to eat everything, WHAT IS THE POINT??? Right?!
