Bettas having somewhat of a relationship with their owner?

Do you think that bettas build like a relationship with their owners?

I do.

My second betta Fury especially did. He would follow me around the room by swimming back and forth throughout his tank. He would greet me when I can up to the tank, always gave me these cute eyes. Boy was Fury a charmer.

My 3rd betta I thought did too. He'd come up to the tank, and always like to say hi. Cute little guy he was.

I believe that bettas do build bonds with their owners. At least mine did. They always liked to come and say hello.

How about your bettas? Do yours seem to relationships with you?

I had two of these



jump out of their tank yesterday. One I caught in my hand and the other had to get picked off the carpet from under the rack.

All because I was taking too long to put their food in.

I do think that bettas are very curious fish and mine always seem interested in watching me (possibly to see if I have food) if I am in the same room as they are.

I don't care if it's anthropomorphising, I always talk to my bettas when I am doing tank changes etc. because I do think that they do get some kind of enjoyment/mental enrichment in interacting with me.

Haha, my betta did the SAME thing two days ago...it surprised the heck outta me! I tried catching him on the way down, but ended up having to pick him up off of the carpet. He was pretty calm though, I'll give him that.

Once one of my plakat males (he used to jump out on you if you leaned over his tank or so much as looked in his direction) ended up jumping into the very small plastic container full of cold tap water I had been thawing his bloodworms in.

I freaked out thinking he was going to die. But nope he just sat there eating as many bloodworms as he could until I got him out.

It scares the heck out of you when they go sailing merrily past haha. I swear they get this twinkle in their eye and their little back end starts wobbling when they think of jumping.

Haha so much joy with bettas I love em but always get the short end of the stick and buy old old bettas so the most life is 6-11 months with each Betta but mine is always shy-ish and died a month ago from wedging his head in between to rocks when i i was gone and drownd may Alpha rest in peace for he was far too curious yes my betta was named Alpha pretty ironic but yes they do form a sort of bond if they are in group of a 2 or by themselves .
