Bettas are very smart...or observant

My betta autumn, she's the red and gold one with brown, the girl. lol
Anyway,
she is very smart!
It's so cool how the smallest of animals can hold so much in them.
I move my finger around the tank and my bettas will follow or stare at me. Autumn always finds interest, I think she thinks it's food. I painted my nails pink and she actually acted different. She stared at the pink on my nails and had this look like "what's that?"
They are so awesome. :D

My fish remembers the net! If he ever sees it he swims and hides at the back of his pot! It is so funny.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

I totally agree that they are smart - and observant! I got my new guy, Mustang, on a Thursday night and by Friday night he knew exactly what to look for at feeding time.

I've owned many different types of fish.. even saltwater, and bettas are by far the smartest I've seen. Thus why I'm continuing in the betta hobby! At first I thought a sorority would be boring, but omg the girls are hysterical to watch, and they love to swim in between my fingers while I'm rearranging decorations.

Cool. :D
Yea, when I used a cup to scoop out my first betta, he realized what it was and would always try to swim away from it, he got mad at me one time so I gave him a bloodworm and he acted okay again. lol
I don't have a sorority but it sounds like fun! I have 1 girl and she is very happy with her space, lol
