all of mine readily jump in anticipation of food. i havent had one jump out of the tank yet but the water was low enough to stop it.

I think so. I wave goodbye to Rain everyday and he swims to the end of the tank to see me off. And when I come back, he's in the front of the tank to greet me (whether or not it's for food, we may never know, hahaha). I like to talk to Rain (when nobody's here of course, or else my roommate would think I'm a loony) and he just stares at me.

Harlot, my very first betta, would swim erratically when he saw me and even make eye contact. Boy, I loved that kiddo so much. I wish he were still with me.

My male is very particular and doesn't like my husband too much. He tends to sulk in a corner and stare at my hubby, and take his sweet time coming to the top for is food. But with me, almost as soon as he sees me, he's out and swimming around, or zooms to the top when I lift the lid.
My female seems to like both my hubby and I, but flares at my hubby a little more often than she does at me. Also, she will jump if I take too long feeding her or if I have my fingers near the surface when I'm cleaning. She has actually jumped completely out (I believe chasing one of the millions of fruit flies infesting our house at the time) and spent at least a half an hour of the water.

Mine love anyone that brings them food The sorority especially will swarm to the side of the tank you are on, probably hoping you are bringing more food. Even if it's food related love, they do interact in a much more direct way. The tetras will drift up to the top at feeding time, zip around eating, and wander off. The bettas swarm and wiggle and dance and slide over and under each other trying to get to the next pellet. Same action. One kind just puts on a better show!

Link comes over to the front of the tank whenever I get anywhere near him. He also does it for my fiance, and probably would for anyone walking by. He's just a social fish. :P Even if it is just for food, I still like to think it's cause he's happy to see us.

I think bettas definitely do. All five of mine greet me, but completely ignore anyone else.
