my fiance's betta Eric is very engaging with people, but shy with other animals. he hardly ever flares at a mirror, tries to avoid it instead. i joke a lot that he's less of a siamese fighting fish and more of a siamese "running away" fish :)
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
