we all are newbies to the betta world at some point. :) for my delta, Dante, before he passed away, i'd have to entertain him 24/7, or he'd destroy his beautiful tail. to do that, i'd re-arrange his decoration every time i'd change his water, and move things about around his tank. :) like, he had this Pokemon figure he liked to stare at. so, i'd randomly move it's position and pose. he'd have a blast, checking it out like it was something new, even though it wasn't. my first betta, a veiltail named Zach, loved these what-nots i had, so i'd keep them by his tank all the time. he'd actually get upset and mopey if they weren't there!
