I thought it might be fun to have a thread about bettas that act in ways that we don't expect, or contrary to what is common for betta fish, sometimes to our chagrin, and sometimes to make us laugh. These fish are individuals, and that's what makes them so special! I know there are some really great stories on here of fish that just don't behave as expected. You can include non-betta tank makes of your bettas, too.
To any beginners reading this, please do not assume your fish are likely to do any of these things. You may find out some exceptions of your own, but give your fish time and proper care.
