Lol XD Silly fishy... mine scare me a lot as well XD
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
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!
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.
