I was surprised at how sociable my betta and my other fish are. Before I had fish, I thought they just swam around, but they don't, they come up to the glass and seem to interact with you. My betta follows my finger if I wave it around, and he always comes over to the glass if I go to his tank. I talk to him and he sort of "dances" around. He's not just "a" fish, he's "my" fish. I'm really quite attached to him and I've only just got him recently.
I think they definitely have personalities. One of my platies is a bit bossy, he seems to think he's the boss of everyone. My little yellow one seems very gentle. She just wants to swim around and have a peaceful time. They are all different.
