lil people ;)

I know this might sound (be) strange, but did ya ever get the feeling that your female Bettas are lil people stuck inside a fish body? i'm like 2 billion times bigger than they are, yet they have NO Fear of me whatsoever. This just seems strange to me for some reason. They watch my every move, go out of the way to be a part of what i'm doing, like for example if i start moving things around, instead of fleeing in terror they run up to see whats up.

it would seem that way with all bettas considering that each one has its own personality unlike schooling fish which all act the same and one reason I agree with you is how some bettas are more aggressive than others just like how some people are meaner and more aggressive than others

maybe they ARE little people, stuck inside fish bodies. that's why they seem so human-like at times. :O

Oh, my females had a ton of personality. If I put a hand in the tank, some would flee, some would follow around curiously, and some would attack my hand.


Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)




Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

My girls are VERY nosey and always want to know what is going on (as does my male), however I swear my girls were kangaroos in previous lives as they are forever jumping!

Kangaroos, LOL! My first and second bettas must have been kangaroos at some point too, my first betta, a little girl, would jump when my back was turned, and my second betta, a male, ended up dying from jumping. My bettas now definitely have personalities. My CT loves flaring at any moving thing, swimming and watching you. My VT loves flaring at my kitty and showing off his pretty fins. My HM loves chillin by the filter, playing follow the finger, and eating. Whoops, all of my bettas love eating. LOL! I hope they weren't people at some time though! Because when they get mad at you, they get all grouchy and grumpy... hehe.

Goodness! Yikes, what a jumper! Hehe. My first bettas lived a few years in bowls, no cover, that is why they could jump. :D
