Unfriendly betta.

My Morgan is just not Mr Personality!! He heads to the other side if I stand next to his tank. And he's a pain in the rear to catch for water changes. Today he tried to get under the rocks and then he laid on his side like I had killed him. I'm going to switch him with one of my easier to catch fish. It's hard enough to catch him in that round Aqueon 360 without him making it even harder.He's the only one that ignores me and won't make up to me. Little brat!!! lol Do any of you guys have one that acts this way?

He sounds like a major brat haha.

Dallas is the hardest to get into a cup for water changes but other than that she is super friendly. I can't scare my fish if I try. I have to literally poke them with my finger to scoot them away at feeding time (to make sure the right fish gets the food)

But my CT male is a different story. He hides off in the back of the tank and only comes to the front to eat

LOL little brat... :D

mikko is kinda shy too. Just his personality. I need to get more plants in his tank so he's more comfortable.

All I have is a new female that likes to attack me. Alpha wouldn't let me catch him, but he would swim along the front of his tank when I walked into my room.

Lol! Renard is a major brat when I do try to do his water changes! But he's sooo cute that I forgive him. ;)

M.A.C doesn't really have a personality. He's not mean or anything...he just doesn't really stick out compared to my other bettas.

Morgan is a lot like my other betta Oscar that died a few months back. Oscar wasn't very friendly either. He would literally turn his back on me when I would talk to him. He would swim away from me and completely ignore me.
