New betta likes being pet?

My mom just discovered yesturday that my new betta Triton likes to be pet. He goes to the top of the vase(treating him for fin rot) and for some reason my mom started petting him lol and he let her! he jus stays still while u pet him and sometimes even pushes against ur finger. lol

while my new red one literally jumps out the water for his food. it scares me sometimes! lol anyone else have that problem? we tried petting him and my other red betta Ren but they didnt like to be pet lol

I wouldn't touch the fish often at all. You can rub off the slimy coat that protects them.
As far as the jumping, they jump! They can actually jump out of their tanks if you aren't careful.
You should put something that is breathable over the top to prevent the jumping.

Some will jump if you hold your hand over the water, especially if you are holding food. Some of mine do that.

My betta always goes to my hand and rubs against it when I'm cleaning the tank or something.

I think they will touch us because they are curious.

One of mine bites me. It actually hurts! I don't try and let him bite me, but sometimes I'm cleaning his tank and he comes and hangs on my finger with his mouth!!

Yeah I agree with Drama. Blue used to let me touch him. That's why he became my boyfriends favorite. lol. But he doesn't anymore. He flares at your fingers now because he's next to Aqua. Its cute.
