Not a typucal betta...
So my betta does so many weird things, many of which I have read bettas don't like, maybe it's because he is not a wild betta or maybe his name "Jack Sparrow" is just fitting because he is so unusual.
First, I read that betta don't like currents, well I use an air stone with air pump anyway because the extra air in the water helps him stay more mobile. It does not bother him one bit and I have found him surfing the bubble current on the top of the tank on many occasions LOL! He goes right up to the top of the tube and rides the bubbles out to the side and then darts down tot he bottom and back up, weirdo!
Secondly, he begs at the top of the tank for food like a dog! Not just swimming up and waiting he will swim right into the wall of the tank at me until he gets my full attention and then he bobs up and down at the top until I feed him. I have to be very careful not to overfeed him so sometimes I just have to leave the room until he stops, I'm afraid he'll knock himself out hitting the side of the tank like that.
And last, everytime he wakes up after sleeping he will circle the tank, flare about 5 times, bite the snowman's carrot nose, and then look out the side to find me. It cracks me up!!!
Does anyone else's betta do weird things like this?
