My betta fish has a hobby

My silly Feather(the one on my profile pic) has a hobby of trying to "dig" his way under my gravel. Does any of your fish have any interesting things they do?

I currently own a male betta fish, a female betta fish, two eastern painted turtles, one western painted turtle, one Chinese dwarf hamster, and a whole load of guppies.

My goldfish pick up pieces of gravel in their mouth and spit it out in the other side of the tank. My betta actually goes rather close to my african dwarf frog and has actually sat or laid right next to him before, and does it quite frequently all though they're supposed to be aggressive.

Liquid you made me think of this o.o

My Bettabettabetta clicks when he eats.. it's so cute, he's so eager to get his food (He's a piggy) that he smacks the water with his face or something and it clicks... and he does this as soon as his lid comes off, when my hand isn't even up there. My brother calls him a little man eater.

My female loves to hide in the rocks in the bottom of her home she is always squeezing herself in them. It freaked me out the first few times but she seams to like it so...

Whenever I bring my camera or my phone up close to Psych's tank he will swim up to the front and fan out his fins for me :) If I had a better camera I would be able to get awesome pictures of him, he stays still long enough (most of the time) for me to get pictures of him.
Also, when I first got him (little over a year ago now) he used to sit up at the top of the water and be perfectly still. I always thought something happened to him, like he died or something, then I would go to put my finger next to him and he would take off real fast then come back and wiggle his butt. I swear he would say "Psych! Fooled you!" then laugh about it. lol. Hence his name. :)

Most people think fish have no personality, but they are wrong!

Definately! Kyon has a lush personality although he be a bit of a meany.

Ky likes to follow my corys around because he knows they suss out food and when they find something he will push his nose into the group. It's so funny cause it looks like he's trying to be a cory! Problem is, he now prefers catfish pellets to his normal pellets. *sigh*

Gone AWOL....
