[font="Georgia"]My male betta Blu-green (I call him Blue) is an easily pleased fish. He blows new bubble nests every time I destroy them when cleaning his tank.
Lately I have wanted to do more for him than feed and clean his tank. I think this is normal betta owner behavior, so I've went with it. I've heard some betta bite their fins out of boredom.
To 'exercise' Blu I make him follow my finger and jump between pellet feeding. I also hold up a mirror or my own face to provide entertainment for him.
Is this a good idea, and if not, how else can I make my fish's life pleasing? I'm worried this may be considered 'teasing'. How do you stimulate your betta's senses?
