Favorite Characteristics?

What's your favorite betta characteristic?

I love their curiosity. I enjoy watching them search their tanks, scrutinize their decor, inspect the gravel. Once I cut up some fake plants and let them float on the surface, they were so curious. Noonie kept trying to eat them. Salsa just swam around them staring the whole time as if he suspected they would attack at any moment. Silly boys. XD

Betta Fish:Salsa,
, Blueberry, El Chapo, Trotsky,Lemon
Siberian Huskies: Kapu & Lakota

... and a tank with 7 Zebra Danios

My favorite thing about Betta fish are their personalities. I love how every single one is completely unique and different. They always make me want to get more.

i love everything about them. their beauty, their personalities, their curiosity. they almost seem human! having seven of them, you really get to see how they're not mindless little fishies like some seem to be, and no two bettas are alike in any way.

I like how friendly they are and how it seems like they are listening to you and understanding everything you say to them.

Having only had mine for less than a week i haven't yet figured out all of their quirks. I think the thing i like the most is how curious my little guy is. He comes to see me when i go in the morning to feed him and then i used the gravel cleaner for the firs time today and i was so scared he was going to get sucked up or something because he just wouldn't leave the thing alone. It's like he has no fear. I can't wait to move him up to my room so i can watch him more.

I love their curiosity too, it's so cute.

I also love the big sassy females that think they run the joint, lol. They'll jump and bite if they feel you're not feeding them quick enough, or attack your hand when you put it in to change something.

I secretly love the wiggle dance they do XD

I also love how intelligent they are. When you feed them, they actually *LOOK* for their food, unlike most fish that just mouth-attack the surface, hoping to get food.

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

At first glance, I love colors. I don't really care for any bettas with loads of red or blue wash now, but anything else is great. They are all so unique!
Next I look at faces. I love girls with adorable, cute faces and guys with either smiley or grumpy faces.
At the end of the day though, it's the personality. My girl does all kinds of crazy, amusing and adorable things. Upwards of 10 different games and quirks! And my boys are all different, but they all love eating and flaring. ;)
I just love bettas. :D

I think they are hilarious. Every time I look at my little guys tank he's always doing something cute and he always can make me smile! I look forward to coming home so I can play with him! <3
