Cool Just Something Random~

I stuck my fingers in the prince's tank today to retrieve a dropped jingle bell and he bit me. I jumped at first, but it only felt like a tiny little gentle bump. XD It was so cute~
Also, about said jingle bells, I wanted to decorate his tank for the holiday season so I taped some little bells on string outside his tank on the front, but he flared at them incessantly so I had to take them off so they didn't stress him out. XD I guess bettas don't take too kindly to brightly-colored orbs hanging outside their house. (Within view, at least) Now the bells are hanging above water level, and he hasn't seemed to notice them.
Have your bettas/fish ever reacted to something this way? XD

My Betta Buddies:
Prince Kaida (VT)
Bentley (DT)

Roxanne (VT)
Elle (CT)
Korra (CT)
Candy (VT)

Rest in peace, Ralph, Xiang, and Violet...I'm sorry you didn't live to see better care!

Cute idea with the bells! My nieces betta(also named prince) has a brightly decorated mini Xmas tree next to his tank but he doesnt mind the ornaments Maybe he has more holiday spirit or something.:) Freyja on the other hand, reacted strongly once to some red netting I placed as a lid on top of her temporary bowl. she was so crazy that she was jumping at it! I had to take it off and replace it with something else.

Ares - My flare happy warrior
Castiel - My inquisitive crowntail

Sammie,Jackie, and Jamie - My fun loving peppered cories.

In Memoriam:
Touchstone - My sweet fool
Freyja - My beautiful girl

Glad to know I'm not the only one who dressed my tanks for the holidays. I found a little Christmas tree tank ornament in Petsmart and just HAD to have it! It's currently in my pink VT's side. Strangly enough when I put it in the tank he was more interested in biting my fingers (he's a baaad biter) than the Christmas tree. I wish I had a picture of it!!
