What & how much is she feeding her betta. It is not good to overfeed them. I always try to keep the idea that their stomach size=the size of their eye in mind when feeding.

You don't want a constipation battle! (We have heard of people loosing their fish over this & your mom sounds like she really is enjoying her fish!!)

:D

A sausage, how funny! My only sausage is one of my goldies. If your mom feeds her betta two times a day, suggest she cut back to only feeding once a day. One of my boys was getting pretty big and since I've started feeding once a day, they've started looking a lot better. Sorry I don't have pics to show you what I mean.

But your mom's fish sounds cute. :happydance
