So I rescued this little guy Tuesday....

... and today I stuck my hand in the tank, just to see how he would react. My first betta was very shy but is now pretty tame, and I wondered how this tiny baby would act if I had my fingers in the tank. He nibbled on my fingertips a bit and then lay in my hand. :) So cute. Pretty fearless for a fish. I would've taken pictures, but the camera wasn't in the room. I think he's going to be super friendly; he would follow my finger when I moved it across the glass literally the day I got him. Maybe he's so used to people because he was one of just a few fish in the store and was handled often? I have no clue lol.
Anyway, here are some pics of him, just so you know what he looks like. His name is Sushi. XD Treating him for his fin rot now, so no worries lol.

Thanks guys! Haha he's already a little brighter. I've been trying to feed him some bloodworms, but he's so small that I have to dig around and find the really small ones. :P

I am not fond of the nips. If he grabs you it may hurt. Did you ever hear them crunch their food?



I have 1
Royal Blue Crown tail named Flushy von Royale.

I've been nipped by Dionysus so many times, but it's never actually hurt me. Of course, I have cats, a dog, a bird, reptiles, and have handled untame HAMSTERS(OUWW!) so a fish bite is like...nothing! XD It did 'hurt' worse than the baby garter snake that got me, but neither of them broke the skin or anything like that, it was more of a surprise.

If a betta fish was koi sized, THEN that would hurt!

He just nibbles, so it doesn't bother me. Jalen has bit me a few times when he was trying to get food off of my finger, but it didn't really hurt. I've had been bitten by several mice and hamsters though, so a betta bite doesn't seem like much. :P
