When the light turns on, I get harassed! :P

Yup, the title says it all. I have a desk lamp beside my betta fish and as SOON as it turns on in the mornings or when I come home at night Wartooth and Waffle began shaking their bodies side to side and opening their mouths like "FEED ME!" So until I feed them, they'll keep on doing it.

I even stuck my finger in Wartooth's side of the tank and he slowly crept up to it and nipped it! Me and that fish have been through everything. He was in a tank with a sick fish (I had no idea until 24hrs before he died) and it made him get fin rot and he turned gray. Luckily, since I have bad luck with buying sick fish, my boyfriend nursed him back to health, the other one died. So let's just say he's kinda spoiled!

Anyways! What kind of tricks do your fish do? What makes them unique? :)

My bettas:
-Wartooth - VT
-Slayer - VT
-Waffle - VT
-Squeaky - ST

That's cute! :p

Today i was feeding Lucky, and there was a little brown spot on the tank. After I fed him, he thought the little brown spot was food and nipped at it! xD I LMAO!

So cute! My Mango has started the habit at feeding time of grabbing a pellet and wiggling in place as he makes a lot of noise eating it. Makes me want to feed him just to watch him wiggle... but I don't.

Ignacio greets me when I come home and as long as I don't leave the front of his tank, he will swim around shimmying in front of me. :D

Mine now does this :P Except he just spazzes around the tank. And he does it more than feeding time. Odd little fishy.

I love them! I swear they're my little pets/friends. I told my mom "Who needs friends when you have these little guys to look forward to every morning and night?!" :P
