Why do we keep Sachen’s water bowl on the mantle?

We have had this fish for over three months and Sachen showed no interest in it until last week when he suddenly wanted to make friends.

He visited The Doctor (named after Doctor Who so that we can get a new one and don’t have to come up with another name) again this afternoon. After I took these pictures, I read the label on the bottle of Betta fish food. Apparently, it contains an appetite stimulant. Great, that’s just what Sachen needs.
