What a beautiful little guy you've got there.
It could just be the camera he doesn't like.
Bettas are weird that way.
I've been trying to go up to his tank and like gently pet the glass when it's food time so that he associates me with food... but unfortunately, he seems to also associate me when water changes and photos
haha he is gorgeous! And totally hates you! :P
Its funny... because we have 4 bettas.... and 2 like me and 2 dislike or avoid me.
MY betta, Saki, avoids me at all costs... though, since i fixed the LED light on his tank to be brighter, he's been a little less elusive
I wonder why.
My husband's betta that he just gave to my daughter, Shisu, hated him, but likes me
My newer betta, Soren, is very social with me. Though... I can't really tell if it's him trying to challenge me or being bold? He doesn't flare at me, but if I put my finger on his tank wall, he seems to almost charge it. Completely the opposite behavior of Shisu and Saki?
And nameless (I am calling him Shark Bate until my husband caves and names him. I don't know why he is putting it off...) mr no name fishy just flares like there is no tomorrow
Maybe he'll calm down when he's in his 5 gallon though.
