Betta In Love? :P

Donald is love with his thermometer?!

It's so funny... He's afraid of Lady Gaga and used to hide when I would play her songs, but ever since I put his thermometer in his tank he's been "guarding" it when I play them!! Whenever I put him back in his tank after a water change, he wraps himself around it for a few seconds. He also bites anyone/anything that touches it!

Also, the fish that has always been fed brine shrimp and kept in PRISTINE water ever since I got him, yet had never blown a bubble nest, blew a (messy :P) bubble nest this morning for "her".

He doesn't try to bite it, so I doubt he sees it as food. He's never flared at mirrors/other fish, but flared at the thermometer and swam in an "s" shape the night I put the thermometer in his tank. It kind of made me nervous, but in the morning he was all touch-feely to it!

He's right beside Sally, but has never flirted or paid the slightest bit of attention to her. Is he thermosexual? xD

Here's the happy couple, Donald the Betta and Daisy the Thermometer. (:

Sally, I will always love you. You were my babygirl and the gateway to my bettabug. Thank you.

I wonder what it is about thermometers. :P Last time I checked, they don't really look like fish...

He stops flirting when I come near him. He gets really defensive. :P

Right now he's trying to feed her some leftover brine shrimp from breakfast... Ha!
