Does anyone elses Beta's do this?


See how his eyes got smaller? Or whatever.. Why does this happen? His eyes are usually entirely black.

That's his eye socket covering. :) When he rotates his eyes to look around, it shows a bit. Perfectly normal.

i'd had bettas for nearly six months before i noticed their eyes could swivel like human eyes. i had always been under the impression they were stationary like shark or snake eyes.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

I love how their eyes move...when Perseus looks at me and I see those eyes moving it just melts my heart, I just want to kiss him on his little fishie nose !

Oh yes - Chicory hangs out at the front of his tank watching me most of the day. I see his attention wander to different things, the plants, the snail, his hidey hole log, etc. And when he notices me watching him, he dances! I can tell he sees because he will be chilling on a plant, or resting at the front of his log with his fins still. When he notices me looking at him, the fins start, and if I lean over that way, I get a dance (And then he usually gets a treat - mutual training!)
