That's good, though. I can picture him swimming over. "I like it at 80 degrees exactly and make sure my dinner is on time, please, and no pellets, only frozen bloodworms will do. Chop chop now!"

My new guy Riceball is the jumpiest thing I've ever seen. He leaps and takes off at the sight of my finger and he spends most of his time hiding in his plant trying to blend in with the white wall behind the tank. Curious he definitely is not. Timid . . . ooooh yes.

lol, he may just need some more time. Jazz and Gilmore were both super skittish when I first got them. they still have their moments now and then that they get a bit freaked out, but they don't go and hide even close to as often now, lol

Tisia - That's good to know, I was a little worried about Riceball. *sniff* Trying not to get my feelings hurt. I switched Riceball and Crichton so Riceball is on my desk close to me. Crichton can flare at Anderson for a while.

Bettawolf - Silly Oscar. But then again, food is pretty much all a betta thinks of so maybe he's not senile, just very single-minded.

They are doing awesome and are so super adorable XD whenever I walk by they start swiming up and down really fast with their faces preset against the glass because they want me to feed them some pellets/crickets/BB's lol I'm really happy I bought them :)
