ohjeez, yes, my fishies have different personalities.
pierce is young and optimistic.. and impatient. he's usually jumping before i can lift his pellet above the tank. he likes swimming around and showing off his fins that are gorgeous despite seemingly perpetual fin rot.
flair loves attention.. he's always swimming around the side i'm nearest. he LOVES chasing my finger and like pierce, tends to jump for his food.
hippie is a little laid back, except when i come around to take pics/ play. then he's constantly swimming. it's weird cause i can tell the difference between my fish's swimming patterns.
caspian thinks he's the king of everything.. flares at everything. usually at the camera. most of my boys have stripes of submission around him. he is the biggest, so. he's still a little scared of me when i come around, (omg giant lady coming to move my plants! must hide!) proving he's not ~that~ brave afterall.
demi is a confident little girl. sassy, more like. i feel like she has big expectations. she likes the boys and likes flirting with them- even the baby- and is usually always sticking her nose in whatever i'm doing with the tank. if i'm moving plants, she's watching; if i'm pouring water in or taking it out, she's over there swimming against the current. i've also noticed that she's big for a female.
shasta is usually pretty chill... he loves attention though, and always swims out of his plants whenever i come around. recently he got a little more hyper and is always chasing my finger. he has almost a smug attitude about things though.
bangle is just gentle.. he doesn't flare, he doesn't nip, doesn't jump.. he swims and hides and wiggles about. probably the most polite of all of the fish. he loves him some attention too.
viper is usually the sulky, angsty teenager but he's lately perked up a bit. he spends a majority of his time under his rock and will swim in impatient circles whenever i fish him out into his cup. he refuses food sometimes just because i'm around.. i'll leave it there, let it sink, and he'll eat it from there.
jericho.. is naive xD he's the smallest (being the baby) and he thinks he's just as threatening as the others. spends a lot of his time flaring at his reflection. he's a sweetheart too, always happily swimming around even when he didn't have a heater. if he was a person he'd probably be the one saying "hey don't worry about it, it's not your fault!" got him a heater though :3
soldier is a sweetheart.. been through stuff but he's young and optimistic just like pierce. he wouldn't have pulled through all that he did if he didn't have such a good attitude. he's attached to his thermometer and likes blowing bubbles all the time.
harvey.. he's rambunctious. he recovered in a day and has been blowing bubbles in his tank since. he likes swimming around and parking it in his red cup.
florence i haven't known for long but so far she seems like a shyer female.. hasn't taken to the guys yet. she's always thrashing about whenever i get her into her cup and usually hides when i come around, but i did play chase with her last night, and she seemed to like that. quirky, i think.
navajo is a little scaredy cat but it seems all betta are when you first get them. so far he doesn't like me being around and hides at mostly everything.. but i bet he's playful when he gets adjusted.
