Cool Things You Won't Learn Anywhere Else

Here is a thread to post small things that you don't find on most care sites and only are learned from experience...not things like "how to do a water change" etc, but the small stuff.

I'll go first:

1) Bettas will flare at anything dark or black, because they can see their reflection.

2) Bettas are very curious and BITE.

Your guys's turn...GO GO GO!

5. some male bettas will not flare at certain colors. i.e. your betta may not flare at another male because of color.

Bettas have different taste preferences. Some may love bloodworms and others will turn their noses up at them. Some prefer certain brands of pellets over others.

bettas personalities very as much as their colors. some may be super aggressive and flare at EVERYTHING, some may never flare at all.

9. bettas love attention. Unlike the myth "bettas need to be away from traffic areas" bettas do better when they see movement, and receive attention/interaction much like a dog.
