One of the three new sisters I got from Cajunamy is the nicest out of the entire sorority... but as soon as I put my hand in the tank to catch the algae eater (for her feeding time move a decoration/hiding spot, etc) or replant a plant, she bolts after me and attacks my fingers and arm and everything. :'D Her bites, even with that tiny mouth, really hurt, too. I've never had a betta with bites that hurt as much as hers. |D
Maybe this isn't cute to a lot of other people... but my old boy Jade gets an open-mouthed 1.5g to himself... His tank's a short, fat cylinder glass thing that works since his long fins are getting to be too much work for him, but he still has a ton of room to move.... So since his tank is always open, things can fall in... or crawl in....
I came into my room one night to feed everyone their nightly meal. I got to Jade and I saw him poking at what looked to be an oddly shaped poop thing. I'm like "Jade, stop it, your poop is not a plaything." But it looked too strange to be his guano... I took a closer look at it.... And nearly had a heart attack. It was a spider. Stress on the "was", lol... All that was left of it was the body (no head) and two legs on each side.... The wolf spider apparently decided to skate across the wrong surface of water and Jade had fun picking him apart.... I'm like "That's... gross, but that's cool!"
I also said I nearly had a heart attack because I have a phobia of dead insects, which applies to arachnids, too.... I can't work well with the new rose tarantula at work now because the image of Jade picking at his meal that night still haunts me.... |D;;
Stupidly enough, I decided to get a picture of Jade's catch... because that's the funniest and most disgusting yet awkwardly cute thing he's ever done in the time I've had him.
