Hopefully you're not using the flash. Some bettas can get really upset with the bright light.
Try hanging around your tank with the camera, he just needs to get used to it.

Maybe cause the lens is black and it looks like the mouth of a bigger fish, My betta is scared to death of the net cause it's looks like a bigger fish.

Dragon's color is so dark I have to use the flash.

I'm gonna post the obvious. Stop taking his picture. :D

I know we love them. And we love to show them off. But if he's terrified of the camera then you're just going to have to leave off. No need to stress him out.

Given time he might get better. It took Kilo two months to get to the point where he wouldn't completely flee from a camera. He's still skittish though.

Yeah. I do have a few good pics. I'll occasionally try to take pics of him but not often. Thanks!

Don't stress him. Some bettas (like aqua) hate cameras. Dragon might want privacy.
