Talking Weird betta habits, that are not illness related - just weird!

For instance, Abyss ( RIP D: ), used to watch me draw or watch television.

Knight watched me draw and covers half his tank in a giant bubble nest, and when he decides he's not comfy enough in his plants or rock, he'll curl up in a corner with his face in the rocks.

Knight is also a little weirdo because he loves it when I put small figurines (like the Ho-oh figure that came with Pokemon HeartGold) up the side of the tank and wiggle it around. He shows off, does a mating or aggressive dance, and blows more bubbles.

Apollo is curious as a cat and will spend an odd amount of time investigating anything and everything.

Also, share pics of your weird fish!

Apollo does that, too xD He tries to burrow in his rocks. I can't have any hides but plants with him or he'll get himself stuck.

Once he gets cozy in his new home, I'm sure he'll have some weird little habit form :) Most fish have one thing at the least.

My Betta Abaddon lovesss to be touched, I'll put my fingers in the tank and he's allll over them.... such a weirdo and no he doesn't have any illness, he's done this since i've had him, which has been over 2 years now :D






My New boy Cadus has a thing with stealing food from the shrimp ;D

though I don't really have a good pic of him.


My other new boy Hige had an obsession with the filter media I had in there for when I was cycling the tank...needless to say...

I only had one betta who allowed himself to be touched at all. It's a cute but surely strange behaviour.

Your bettas are very nice. :)

That's what I love about bettas. They have such personalities! Almost dog-like.

When I first moved Rosso to his new 3.5 filtered, He used to rest between the top of his temple and the bottom of his filter (the suction is in the back). Until I baffled the filter I once caught him swimming under the filter with this look like "Look at me. I can swim through this just fine."
