When I was in the shower and came out, I saw my brother sorta looking at the betta. He ususally shows no care at all for him btw. When I came down to ask wat he was doing, he's like "why is your betta such a fraidy cat?" and I look at the betta, and he freaking runs away from me. Usually he runs up to me and is not scared at all. I ask my brother what he did, and he said that he shook the tank and put his hand in there. He always jokes around and stuff, so I didnt belive him, but he's done that to the community fish before and he's even fed the fish chicken and stuff. And I yell at him, and he's like "what, you always stick ur hand in there and slap he betta!" (By the way, I dont "slap" the betta, I put my fingure in there and he swims around and plays with it) So I'm like "what the hell you SLAPPED the fish!?!!?" And now he's freakin saying he didnt do anything and was kidding, but when I go to Nibbler's tank, he runs up to me, flares like normal, but then when I put my fingure to the glass, he runs to the other side like a chicken. So my butt face brother probably did shake the tank or soemthing. But will my fish be scared forever? I'm really mad, because he's sorta caustious around me now. At first I thought the betta just didn't reconize me, beucase I look really different with my hair wet, but now it's dry and he's still scared.
So yeah, will he be scared forever? Or was he just shocked a bit, and will be back to normal soon.
ps. I think my brother fed him, because Nibbler looks sorta fat.
