I have a lot of special memories with Keller, my first and favorite betta, from going through tank upgrades to going to live plants, to hearing him chew for the first time... Fighting finrot...first bubblenest, playing chase... the list goes on. Now I have 15 bettas and share memories with each but Keller still holds the positition on my bedside table, so he literally sleeps about 2 feet from me on the bedside of his aquarium in his betta log. And I wake to him watching me every morning.
That being said, the memory that I happen to be thinking of right now regards one of my girls, Cleo, who is the highest jumper I've ever seen. She's the first betta I've had that REALLY leaps (they all jump), but I mean she really flies. The first time I witnessed this was when I put her out of a failed sorority into her own side of a divided 10 gal and I was peering down at her to see how she would take the change, and she peered right back up at me. And we just looked at each other for a full minute. Her face was completely out of the water looking straight up at me and it was so cute. Then blamm! She shot straight up a good 2-3 inches! I was so surprised! She almost hit me in the face! It was the cutest thing, and now she does the same thing on 2 occasions: when I feed her, and when I make kissing noises to her. Yes, she really does jump specifically to kissing sounds. Love my Cleo!
