Yeah, the jumping out is terrifying, as well as dropping a fish. I'm glad none of mine have taken a leap yet. I think I'd freak. Lol.

This was the first time in the 5 years I've been keeping bettas that I ever knocked one on the floor.

Mine liked to scare me by going into a bushy plant and sitting there. The first time he did it I was like, "Is he stuck? What do I do?" Then he wiggled out. Now I call it "playing Stuck."

I has Spiri on the count next to me while I was doing water changes. He was in his cup, and I was cleaning out his tank. When I had my back turned, He jumped out of his cup and into the tank I was cleaning o.o Fortunately I was rinsing it with declorinated water. It scared me though o.o


In the hobby for 9 years.

Aqua is black so is his rocks. So when I checked on him I could't find him! I was going to scream but then he swam out from his hiding place and laughed at me!
Evil Aqua! Just like his owner (my bro).

They do laugh at you, I swear and I'm convinced they like to spook you. Whiskey's into scaring me now. He puts himself into weird contorted positions or drapes himself upside down or sideways and as soon as I come to check on him he swims out like he's fine. Weirdos!

Buddy scared me by laying at the bottom of the tank not moving!I ran over to the the tank and he got up and did a little dance with a silly grin on his face.I was so mad at him!

Bettas have to much personality!

My betta will swim by the front of the tank, but when I come over, he swims away. He is scared of fingers, the camera, pictures of other fish that are not betta fish- and whenever he freaks, I feel so bad! But he is very curious,too. So he is shy and curious.
