anyone else's betta do this?

my new male Hank, who i am falling even more in love with every day, is currently resting on his leaf bed... the only thing is is that he's sitting on the suction cup, not the leaf *facepalm* should i move it up a little higher or do you think he's just a little eccentric? He seems a little slow in my opinion... he's in his new tank and he's been looking at and flaring at his own reflection on and off all day...

It is probably just some little quirk they have, my last guy Ryu used to sit on top of his terra cotta houses (and hardly went in them). The flaring at his reflection in the glass thing is pretty normal as well, Ryu did that for a while when he got put in the 10g tank where the sides were some what reflective.

peace. love. & bettas.

My betta does that, too! He loves sitting on that suction cup. And I think he spends at least 1/4 of the time reacting to his reflection. He doesn't flare much, he just sees himself and darts around a lot. It's good exercise for him, I guess.
