Special betta words

Does anyone else use their own, made up words to describe something their bettas do? One of my fiancee's and my favorite made up words is "floof." We use that word instead of "flare."

Examples :

"Frodo floofed at me when I walked in."

"Sam has been very floofy today."

"Godric was floofing at his reflection this afternoon."

"I was watching Eric today and he kept going floof, floof at me."

"Rasputin is so calm, he hardly ever floofs."

Hmmm I don't think I do...

And I use the word Floof, but it refers to a corgis fur in my dictionary xD

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

Lol I do that when I'm talking about my fish to someone who doesn't know the technical terms....which is usually my girlfriend. xD
I use 'Puff', 'Puffy', and sometimes 'Floof' or 'Floofy' as well. My girlfriend prefers to simply call them 'Fluffy', however. xDD

I don't have any for the fish that I can think of. But when my little cat, Miko, just picks a spot in the middle of the floor and lays down, we call it Fwooping She fwoops on the bed, too.

Haha I think "Foofy" was a nickname I used for my first cat.
