Talking Is Lucky a Weenie?

I showed Lucky a mirroe of himself.... He swam frantically around and hid... I couldn't even find him. Is he a weenie? I thought he was sopposed to flair and defend his home.

This can be natural behaviour if he is juvenile. I have noticed this particular behaviour when the Betta is stressed, juvenile, or sick.

Maybe his is a youngster then... he definitely isn't sick... he has a lot of new fin growth too.... He also runs if I put my finger up to the tank.. even though he watches me all the time and comes to greet me if I walk to the tank..

I'm finding out that they have personalities just like my birds..

Maybe he is a lover, not a fighter? LOL

My boy Odysseus is a totally wuss. If he sees you approach the tank, he'll be all, "Oooh, watcha gonna do, huh? This is mah tank!" But if you very gently put your finger near the glass he'll go and hide in the hornwort and peek out at you through the stems. :p

Life.
