I just recently got a male betta fish a few days ago. When I first brought him home he was very docile, enough that I could stick my whole hand into his bowl and he wouldn't even pay attention to me.
Now that a few days have gone by, he is starting to be super aggressive! I know he is a Siamese Fighting fish, duh he is aggressive. However, I am starting to feel worried about feeding him because anytime I come near his bowl, he just absolutely flips out. He flares at me, and he just attacks his bowl, like he is trying to attack me.
I am worried because when I remove the lid (with lots of air holes) from his bowl to feed him, he starts jumping and lunging. I am afraid that when I feed him, he will just jump right out of the bowl!
I've done my best to care for him, I feed him small portions about 2x a day. I've also noticed that he's made lots of bubblenests-- I read online that this is a good indicator of him being healthy.
Anyway, any advice on preventing my betta from jumping out of his bowl when I feed him? Is he ever going to calm down? I feel like he hates me!
