The "Feed Me" Dance

This is what my best friend and I call it when my Tiberius kinda "dances" back and forth when I come in the room. He doesn't greet anyone else this way, and I think it's cos he knows I am the one who gives him food. And we ALL know how bettas are about their food!

Don't you just love when your bettas do the "feed me" dance? If they do it; I know some of my best friend's fish don't.

Hahaha, I have one guy who is forever doing that little wiggle dance. Every time he even looks at me. It's adorable. I have another who swims up to greet me for two seconds and loses interest again. Little snob. And my third one is really shy. He's also really nuerotic. So if you watch him and he doesn't know it, he's doing all sorts of crazy dances and stuff. Lol.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. - Albert Einstein

my HMDT does that all the time, he keeps going until i relent and give him a tiny peice of a flake. he calms down after that. my other 2 do dance but spending a few moments with them calms them down.

Hehe my boys do the "feed me" dance.. my girls just jump out of the water as soon as the lid is moved up.. no time to dance, don't even have food in my hand.. just up and jump as soon as they see my hand over the tank. So for me there are the feed me dances and the feed me NOW jumps lol

Breeder so I have too many to count and too many named to list here!
