I can now say I have been attacked by a betta

The other day I went to go clean Lil Sano's tank. As I was taking out the heater, like I normally do, he swam over as fast as he could and bit me twice! It was so cute. The first time he let go almost instantly, but the second time he held on for about 10 seconds. I normally play "tag" with him and he chases m finger and then I chase him so I wonder if he was just playing. Either way, it was adorable.

Hahaha, that's funny. I've never had a fish bite me before.
Lil' Sano is a piranha!

I tried mine to bite my finger but all he did was flare at it and swim around it in a threatening way. But he didnt do anything in the end.

How I miss that fish. And my Canaries.

Sparkle never bit me yet. I bet it tickles

They do have some type of cartlidge in their mouth..not exactly 'teeth'.

I love to hear Sparkle "crunching" his pellets when I feed him. I think that sounds real neat.

My house is very quiet. I have been told that I would be a good safe-cracker since I can hear so well

Try feeding your betta with the tank hood off and have no other noise in the room. If the pellet is big enough and you listen carefully, you will hear "crunch..crunch...crunch". I love it

My boy Crusoe chases anything I place into his tank, including my hands. He is completely relentless though, determined to keep on attacking until my hand dies, and sometimes can get quite vicious. I have to isolate him in his cup when I change my water or else h won't stop pestering me.

I can hear my bettas crunching on their pellets too! So cool! I also love putting my fingers in the sorority, the girls will swarm around my hand and nip at it!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...
