Try interacting with her a little. If you have markers, put the around her tank. Or maybe a try a house plant. When my Shani looks bored, I usually make a ring of markers around her tank, and that'll entertain her for a few hours (: She also loves looking at plants when they're next to the tank. If this doesn't work, try moving your finger along the glass, to see if she'll chase it. Good luck (:

Live food is a classic one. Very stimulating. Objects outside the tank is good too-- i've even heard of someone rotating plastic animal toys (the ones from the dollar store) around the tank. You can also rearrange their decor with each cleaning or even float a ping-pong ball on the top of their tank for them to push around. My betta takes great interest on anything I drop beside his tank on my desk (my, coat, bath towels, my purse, etc) and also likes fighting with my pipette (i squirt it at him under water lol).

I tried ping pong balls today, but only one of my bettas showed any interest. That's out of eight fish xD

try putting a mirror by the tank and let her flare. I think that should keep her busy a while! ( just dont keep it there too long. :) ) hope this works!
