Wink Fish vs. Fire.

Just had to share this.

So I lit the candle I got for my birthday (Vanilla Bean... smells awesome)

And without thinking put it up on my desk... And am now observing my fish's reaction to it...

Tifa is fascinated by it. It's adorable. He stares, and if I move it, he follows. Totally out of curiosity, not in the "get offa mah properteh" kind of way. Every time it flickers he gets a little startled, but that's natural.

Winston on the other hand wants to destroy it. After all he was almost named "Scrambles the Death Dealer" (Next fish. promise. lol) ... As soon as he saw the flame he spread his fins out, and started swimming in circles. No gill flaring yet... So I'm not sure if he wants to destroy it or mate with it!

Nina is also fascinated, but she won't follow back and forth, only with her eyes. I just changed the layout of her tank, so I think she's a little bit distracted with "ooh what's this? ooh what does this do?" haha

Interesting reactions though. It's pretty cute.

It's so cute! It definitely kept them occupied for a while! I mean how often does something that lives in water have an experience with fire?

So cute! It makes sense though. I mean, how often do bettas see fire, being a water dweller?
