Silly Fish...

Indy HATES it when I do 100% water changes. And I mean hates it. He starts freaking out and gets stress stripes out the wazoo pretty much as soon as I cup him, and proceeds to swim around like a madman the entire time I'm cleaning. And glare at me with his evil fish eyes.
Anyway, I did one yesterday and he acted like his normal self, freaked out the entire time, even when I put him in a shady part of my bookshelf and tried to keep the noise minimal. He always makes me feel so bad xD.
But, this morning, I woke up to find that he'd built a bubble nest in his new clean water. So, I guess he does love me after all :P. He's not much of a bubble nest builder, usually.
I haven't had a betta since I was a kid, and I swear they have more personality than any other fish I've ever owned. I think I've been bit by the betta bug! Anybody else got stories about their silly fish?

Surprisingly, he's really easy to get IN the cup - he usually swims right in to check it out. But once I scoop him up he acts like the sky is falling
