We recently discovered that our betta has a strong aversion to camera lenses. When I hold up my point and shoot camera with the lens out, he starts swimming around rapidly and tries to jump out of the bowl. He also loses his color from being so stressed out and turns grayish. We can only take photos without disturbing him with camera phones.
Has anyone ever encountered this?
This is the same betta who happens to have a lump near his elephant ear fin :( We just want to keep him happy and stress free.
Any input would be appreciated.
