Aww that little stinker!haha Thankfully all of mine come right up to the tank to greet me and don't give me any trouble with water changes. Indy still gets really stressed every time, so I try to make it easier for him (catch him quickly with the net and not mess around with transporting him to the small bowl).

Murdoch is a grump. And Farnham is a close 2nd in grump-lympics. I do their waters last cuz it takes the longest. (Admittedly I gave Farnham a good reason to be grumpy today by accident...I took him from the bowl and put him in the cup he waits in...and I forgot to put the water in for him. Eek! I quickly filled the waiting cup with some pre-conditioned water and he had a fit at me while I finished his bowl.) Oopsie. It's been a long day.

And yet my fave two fishy pics ever are of them. Meh.

My CT Bingo is pretty shy. He'll only really react to me (especially when I have food). I wouldn't say that any of the others are unfriendly but I love how different their personalities are. It makes for an intersting mix.

My Starburst is the same way. Since I got him he is the flarer, and if I try to catch him, let's just say it takes a while. :)
He may be a little stinker with terrible finrot, but I love hime just the same.

we,, my first 2 betta males (red and blue veil tails) where so friendly i could pick them up out of the tank with my hand. they'e just swin into my palm. fed them by hand etc, you could pet them etc etc. my girls are very friendly, eventhough 2 of them are new, but they copy the old girl which is tame too. draco loves me, ghost too, but salmon is a brat too! have him 2 days and just cant warm up with him... tis' a petty you can interact with the fish in the shop and see what they are like...

thank you very much BFC. wish i would have bred him lol. i got him imported from a UK breeder. my local petstore chain, the manager, has a soft spot for bettas and imports special ones through the shop for himself and i asked him to get me something nice too. he found salmon and ghost too. their bettas arent kept in cups either lol. they have tanks with all mod con's LOL

sorry for the off topic btw.

well salmon is warming up to me now, so i guess ill take back what i said lol. he's not a brat... but he sure came across that way lol

My little girl, Rosie is a sweet heart. Every time I go up to her tank she swims up to me. I dont think any of my other Bettas did that. And so far I think she is my favorite. I have never changed her tank becouse around the time I was supposed to change it I got a new filtered tank for her. But I did have a few problems trying to catch her.

I have a planted, cycled tank at home so I only do partial water changes & haven't had to catch Sir Fins. He very friendly & curious. He loves the new plants I put in a few weeks ago.

I have to bat him away when I'm cleaning or planting. He always wants to know what's going on.

Freddy - at work - is curious but HATES to be caught. That boy can swim & wiggle his way around!
