Bettas make sounds - don't be silly :D

Anyone every stop and listen to your betta? :D I mean it lol. I used to have mine with a heater in a small tank, and when I fed him, all I heard was "crunch, crunch" >< lol I did not even know you could hear that. It was sooo weird lol

lmao it's impossible for them to -not- make sounds, seeing that they are moving things and sound is generated by vibrations through atoms picked up by your ears.
my fishies make a "pop" sound whenever they come up to peck at my fingers. and speaking of chewing bettas, it's adorable to watch them munch at their food.

Boys: Ichabod, Canary, Perseus, Louie, Cherokee, Rojo

Girls: Marie, Hilda, Pixie

Rest in Peace: All of my former fishies. <3

When my girls are in full feeding frenzy all I can hear is the snapping as they snatch their food. Vivian attempted to take my fiances finger off when he didn't drop them fast enough. She jumped out at him and scared him.

Hahaha vicious fish :D Everyone keeps telling me "no no fish don't make sounds" darn rights they do lol. Same with someone who asked why I got fish, and he also remarked "fish are useless, because they don't do anything".

Oh suurree.. because my betta totally doesn't go around in circles when I motion him to, or jump out to grab food, or any of that ;)

lol I guess so!! Never really considered it was them "making" sounds more so than it was the resulting sounds from them snatching food. I guess I was looking at it in a different light.. (eye roll)

I almost got Laki to jump out for a bloodworm once but I think he knew I would just give it to him -_-' I'm a sucker. The dog and bunny got me trained this way too :P

I agree with you on the Betta's making sounds thing. I have never heard any Betta make sounds of their own personally. On a side not though I do have a female name queen Sheba and she will jump up to get a pellet from me. At first it scared me but then I though it was cute. I even considered seeing if I put the pellet in my lips if she would jump up and give me a "kiss" LOL!
