Question The Uncertainty Principle...

I've been reading about what people's bettas like to do, etc., and I'm wondering how in the world one can observe their betta? Every time I come near Iv's tank, he stops what he's doing and swims to the front, dancing about like a shaman summoning the rain (or a betta summoning a bloodworm). I have his tank next to my desk, and if I even turn my head, here he comes! I've been trying to watch him out of the corner of my eye, or sneak up on him in the morning... Sheesh! Any ideas?

lol Yes! I should try camouflaging myself as the furniture...

I just did catch him swimming through one of his decorations. Perhaps there is more to my spy-skills than I thought. My roommate professes I am having way to much fun with my fish. She just doesn't know what she's missing out on! :P
