I love this thread, it really lightens my day.

Each time my betta eats he releases a small trio of bubbles... almost like a burp, heh. He also has a floating silk lilly pad; I take the lid of his aquarium off and gently push it around the surface of the water with my finger, he'll follow it with his eyes then swim over to investigate.

I also remember the first time I fed him - tried bloodworms. The one I chose was a little too big so he kept spitting it out and sucking it back in - in the end it got caught in the filter outflow and went flying across the across, he chased it in pursuit and lost. Awww... x]

Awww, this thread is cute. <3 I put this lava lamp in front of one of my tanks. At first, Harmonia ignored it hardcore. She was more interested in the box of tissues on the side of the tank. But I looked over later, and she was following the lava up and down as it rose and sank. Sooo cute. :D

I always find it adorable when my betta, Colin, is building his bubble nest. He carries his bubbles on his back and then flips around looking at me and I can almost picture his saying "Look! Look at me! Aren't you proud?" it's adorable :)

On my computer desk I have my little spunky HM Betta B.B. Whenever I come near the tank, he will press his little face close to the glass and wriggle up and down and his little mouth is opening and closing fast. It may just be he thinks its food time, but B.B. only does it when I'm talking to him and it really looks like he is trying to talk back to me. It is so CUTE!

I think that its so cute when my Betta swims and hides in his little cave when I turn the lights on in the tank, he is like AAAAH IT BURNS

16 gallon - 11 neon tetras, 6 Pygmy cories, 6 kuhli loaches and 1 male Betta
15 gallon - 1 male Betta, 3 platies, and 5 guppies
6 gallon - 1 male Betta

All planted tanks

In My Opinion a Betta deserves nothing smaller than a 5 gallon tank

I just witnessed something I've never seen a Betta do until now.
I was feeding Marcos, I gave him 3 pellets. He ate the first 2 quick as he usually does. Then, he starts to flare and swim/dance around the last pellet. He does this act for a few more seconds and then gobbles it up.

I swore I'd never buy another petstore betta again--haven't we all? Every one of us has a tale why we quit breeding (if we ever did quit!), but we never really get over being bitten by the betta bug. Well, that promise held for eight years until I walked into my favorite local freshwater specialist shop, intent on supplies for my preschooler's goldfish and loach tanks. (They're really mine, but she'll tell you they are hers.) I saw a flash of movement, and walked past the dwarf puffers, mollys, gouramis, and other excited happy fish, to the back.

There it was again! A bright flash of lavender. I peeked in a temporary 1 gallon home to see what on earth it was. Two black eyes peered back at me, and I kid you not, a betta waved at me. His front fins are enormously long, perhaps 1/2 an inch, certainly longer than 1/4 inch at the very least. (It's not like they hold still to measure... :/ ) He's just a cherry red VT, with an extreme iridescent layer of lavender. I blinked, waved back, and he waved again. With one fin. I boggled, called my husband-to-be over, and asked him to look at the betta.

"He's an awesome color, but I thought you vowed no more betta fish?"

Before I could answer, the betta turned, and waved at him with his other fin. We both waved back, and he flared and started doing excited circles. It was worth it to see his jaw drop. "Did.... That fish just wave at me???"

Mr. Personality is now resident in his own personal abode of 5 gallons that the goldfish outgrew years ago (yes, I added a marineland preset heater). He waves at me with his right fin, my fiancé with his left, and my daughter (or anyone holding food) with two fins. He doesn't seem particularly caring that he has a tank of comets to one side, and fancy finned underwater pigs to the other side. Not even the cat phases him. He just likes people.

Got a call this morning, my mother decided to drop in on my house while I was out. "There's something wrong with /that weird red fish/!" "What's wrong with him? Don't feed any fish, Mom. They aren't starved. They lie!" "His fin is moving funny." "Is he still red and active?" "Yes, he's following me like a dog." "Does it look like he's waving?" "Yes." "He's waving at you, Mom. Wave back." "... Your weird red fish waved back at me... How on earth.. You know, you have the weirdest pets!"

Mr. Personality's name suits him perfectly.
