Talking What Do You Do With Your Bettas?

So what do you like to do with your bettas? Do you just watch them, play with them, "Talk" to them, etc? I just watch them and tell 'em how awesome they are. How about you?

Oh my gosh I talk to mine so much..

I was doing a water change on Dumbo's tank and cupped him really fast (He's a really spazzy fish) and said "Good dog... I mean Good fish!" LOL

Almost all of mine love the "chase the finger" game! I'm afraid to do it with my girls though, might lose a hand. Hehe

I talk to them, and play the finger chase game (Puffy now chases my finger so quickly, he can occasionally get a pretty hard bite in here and there), and I watch them.

I love to watch mine and of course talk to them.I will pet them through the glass and and play the finger chase game.I do most of this with Carlisle and Anardil I watch and talk to Mizu but he is not as friendly towards people he greets me and shows off but does not quiet trust fingers.Probably cause the kids/teenagers always poke at the bettas at meijer and since I know he was there for so long he is just bitter.He has come along way though.

Absolem - DeT
Fez - Metallic OHM
Tomato - HM
Thor - HMPK King
Sorrority tank - 1 Det - 3 CT's
Goldfish Tank - 1 Orange Oranda - 1 Calico Fantail - 1 Clown Pleco - 1 Dojo Loach

I baby-talk to mine too. XD Like, "Ooh, hello honey... how are you? Are you good? Yeah?"
I stick my hand in the tank sometimes (washed and rinsed in de-chlorinated water) and they like to sit in my hands and swim around my fingers. I don't do this too often though, maybe once a week.
They all love the finger chase game too.
I make my boy Marmaduke jump for me... if that counts... (he's pretty much my only betta who will jump for food.) I put different objects in front of them so they have something to look at...
and... yeah. XD


In the hobby for 9 years.
