My bettas being funny.

Yesterday I went to feed Sol, my orange betta and he started dancing around.
He freaked out and then poofed up and stood very still, staring at his reflection. I already put the food in but he didn't noticed it till it started falling down, and he caught it from the side like "Oh!!" I think he was defending his food from his reflection.
It was like he got so excited he literally had spazzed out.
I noticed my bettas will do that sometimes!
And then this morning, shimmy (crowntail), got really excited for food and did not see that I put his food in. He kept bouncing around and then started spazzing out all of the place. Litterally, like he was saying "PLEASE give me the food!!!" He was having a fit for it, expecting me to put my hand right through the container to give it to him directly. So funny.

If anyone's noticed, I haven't been on in a long while!
I kinda got distracted with other things...but my bettas are okay! My little snail died...I don't know why. :( The cutest snail i've ever seen!!!

Wanna see a funny pic?

^ Shimmy flaring at me.

It's so cute, my orange betta was younger when I got him. He was a happy little one, he still is! But he's grown into his dominant self. He never flared at my fingers until recently. If I put my finger up he'll stare at it and start to flare. haha

I tried switching my bettas homes out, they seem happy/fine with it!
I can't move Sol from his original home though, he gets scared and turns pale. As soon as he was back in his own home, his color came back and he became very happy!

Hey! My male is called Shimmy as well!
He does this to me all the time. I put my finger up to bowl and he'll get agitated, flare up and jab at the side of his tank.
