I just saw Rusty, my new crowntail, resting on one of his plants! YAY! I hope he'll begin to use them. I have no idea if he ever does when I'm not around.

dramaqueen: It's quite possible that they do use them, just not when you're around. My bettas all have lots of plants and most have pots as well. However, when ever I am in the room they are all floating near the glass wiggling at me. Even if I put new stuff in the tanks they generally are more interested in me and don't go right away to check it out. But, if I walk out of the room and peek in, they are all checking out the plants and swimming around/through them, sometimes flaring at something new. Same thing with the pots. I never thought they used them until I saw them sleeping in them at night. Some also sleep in the plants. I like decorations because they seem to keep them amused when I'm not around ;)

What do you think it means when they flare?

I had to move George's plant when I added the heater. Had to rearrange the plant a few times, still not sure it's in a good spot (because the water flow seems stronger now than before I inserted the heater & moved the plant). After one plant rearrangement, George swam around, and I swear he looked straight at me and flared a moment. I think he was saying, "I HATE IT!" But I really have no idea.

Poor thing, I think he is still trying to find a nice comfy calm spot to rest.

What Chicklet was saying about our fishes personalty. Well I have a good story.
My Betta male Jasper is currently in a 1 gallon vace/bowl with a plant growing not out but in it....(The roots are growing in it) Well 5 days ago I put him in a bigger bowl/tank that was 2.5 gallons without the plant but had a figure dec. in it, which he HATED!!! He would stay in one spot and not swim anywhere but at the bottom. This went on for a couple of days until I couldnt stand to look at him, being so miserable. So I put him back in the SMALLER vace/bowl WITH the plant and he is as happy as he was before!!! lol......

I saw 2 bridges at Walmart but one was broken and I was afraid my fish would get stuck under the other one because the spaces under it were so small.

I tried putting some wood in my bettas tank, that had a cave like place under it.and he seemed to feel crowded. so I took it out. and added the floating flowers and the silk flowers. he seems to be happy now.
