Our bettas know when they're about to get food also! They react in different ways to it. Eric has the best reaction. As soon as one of us walks up to his tank to feed him, we show him the food jar. When he sees the container of food, he gets really excited and starts wagging his whole body vigorously. He'll follow the jar and will swim back and forth really fast while also doing his body wiggles. Then he goes straight to the spot where his food will flow to because of the bubbles from the air stone, and will wait for it to come to him. it is the most adorable thing!

Sam and Frodo are in our divided tank and they always just come to the top and wait when they hear and see the tank lid being opened. Godric will kind of follow the jar like Eric does. We've only had Rasputin for a week or so and he hasn't learned the different feeding time signals yet. i'm sure it won't be long before he's reacting to it as well.

I talk to my Leo all the time and I've only had him for 3 days(:
I kiss at him when I walk by him and he gets up to greet me when he sees my lamp go on in the morning (probably because he knows he's getting fed).
In fact, this was him yesterday morning getting up to greet me:

Yep, I talk to my Bettas and even my Cory Catfish, Snails and Fiddler Crabs LOL. I use their name and say Hi as I pass by or at feeding times. My cat gets very jealous that I pay attention to the fish. When I feed them, stop to talk to them, or just sit and watch them, she runs up and starts pawing at me and meowing like she's saying "No me! Pay attention to me only!" This is a daily thing that goes on ha ha!

Sunster your betta looks like Royale, or Roy, the betta fish in the living room. The only main difference is that yous has a tail. Roy does not, he has bitten the whole thing off. The little monster.

Bettagirl101, I bet Roy is still pretty though! Leo has some nibble marks on the edge of his fins but they aren't too bad. (I've seen some babies on here with no tails or fins at all and I'm relieved that Leo isn't that bad off.)

He is very pretty. I'm hoping to get him a 2.5 gallon fish tank for christmas. It's, hopefully, going to be an Aqueon Mini Bow Desktop Aquarium. I'll also get him some plants and gravel. He as of right now has a cave and betta hammock that he loves. I will also move those into his new tank.

I don't think its weird at all! I talk to my puggle as if he is a child and he really understands and communicates back! I loe animals and I think if you continue to communicate they respond positively and live longer. I am a begginer at Betas and will be setting up a Beta minium in about 3 weeks. I need some opinions here. I would like to do at least a 10 gallon, and I am not sure about doing a split with 1 male and then some females on the other side, or just do an all female sorority tank. and where is the best place to buy betas ? We have a petsmart and also a petco here as well as a huge tropical fish specialty store! Any help would be welcomed! Thanks everyone!
