Torpedo betta?

Buddha doesn't really "swim" through his tank at night. Instead he clamps his fins together and wiggles around the edge of the tank like a torpedo...

Um....

Anyone else have one that does this? o.O

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Probably from all the lighting. He's fast for a VT. Buddha reminds me of my 1st Betta...

Buddha just keeps on surprising me xD

It's funny, before I came on here, I used to call him "dull" and "plain." Suddenly his true colors and personality came out, and it seems like everyone just loves him xD

my CT does that... except way jumpier and faster... i think its compensating for the filter... but i also think his fins arent too good for swimming so its more effective to clamp up and then jolt

I don't have a filter though o.O

Buddha just does it as a way to get around.

Its funny because he'll torpedo, and then open his fins, and torpedo again xD
