My Betta's Puffing Up at Me!

Im not sure if its normal or not but my beta is puffing up when ever he see's me. its kinda cute because he'll swim away and then look at me, turn around really quick then turn back to me and puff up. it kinda seems like a game. i just wanted to make sure that he's not scared of me or anything like that because i know he's supposed to do this wen he see's another fish or feels threatened or something like that so i just wanted to make sure.

If he doesn't seem stressed, and he eats, is active, etc then I wouldn't worry about it.

He's probably just trying to scare some more food out of you, the little punk!

Lol, bettas can be silly, silly fish.

That's a betta for you! You should see what my *puffer* does when he's hungry. I've actually seen him try to bite the glass. And not cuz he saw my reflection, cuz he saw me with food on the other side, apparently his shrimp was taking too long to defrost!!
