After learning a hard lesson about the need for supplementing fish diets, specifically peas to relieve (or prevent) constipation, I passed out a nice pea supper to all of my tanks this evening (see my sig). The peas were well received by all but my Betta girls were a RIOT! I split the peas into halves after removing the skin, then dropped them in and after a couple of nibbles, the ladies were picking up an entire half of a pea and darting around the tank with it in their mouths! It reminded me of a puppy racing around with a favorite bone in its mouth! I've never seen one of them do that before with any foods and I laughed until my sides hurt! Pics of Sparkle (red) and Pickles (peachy colored) are attached. Cleopatra and Flower, the other ladies in the tank, did the same thing with the peas but I wasn't able to get good shots of them. :hmm3grin2orange:

Hey Gayle!

The laugh the ladies gave me is going a long way toward helping me feel better about being a bonehead. :ezpi_wink1:

Folks, it was really HYSTERICAL! They looked so cute racing around like that. There isn't a scrap of pea left in that tank, either. They really enjoyed it!

Well not to speak for my wife but the next time we feed peas to them I will have the vid camera ready (unless she feeds peas while I am at work:scry: ).Should be one heck of a show!!!
