Biskit only started coming back into my room just recently. I used to have a cat that stayed in my room like 24/7 but suddenly she moved downstairs. That is when I decided that I will get a betta fish since goldfish didn't work out so well with 3 cats that took interest in them instantly. The cats didn't seem to care for Levi at all. I am starting to think that it may be the tank though. It is a round goldfish tank and i think the sides are reflective which may be him also tuckering himself out in the process. I am probably going to go look for a new tank today something alittle bigger with a filter, light, and heater because it gets cold in my room. I don't like the cold but it occured to me that he may be cold after reading alot of threads on these forums. While in his log he just mainly stays near the hole in it but not moving. I worry about him because he is the first fish that my brother hasn't killed "trying to help" and stuff like that. I am also worried that the days that my brother stayed home he may have come and yelled at Levi. My brother has ADHD and NEVER treats animals right. The dog hates my brother and attacks him. The only reason why biskit likes him is because rarely david will give biskit food. I am usually the one who takes care of the animals. My room is generally a cat free zone as of a couple of months ago. I just don't know what to do. When I went to look at them couple of weeks ago I wanted an active one with pretty colors. He looked up at me, spun around, then looked up at me some more like Take me home pwease.... When I walked away so someone else could look he got sad and hid in the back when I came back over he started doing it again. He has had more personality than I ever thought a fish could actually have. But as of late I don't get to see it because he is always in his log. If it means anything I have to have his little led light on all the time if not he starts to ram the sides of the tank like he is scared of the dark as well. If this wall of chat kinda helps figure it out thanks for reading and helping me. If it makes any difference I am 20 and my brother is 23(we know he is a jerk).
As for the squirt bottle biskit runs from it instantly but I can't keep my door shut because of my dog. He usually won't leave my room until after I am gone. I keep Levi up near my clock where the cats can't even reach without getting up on the bed. Double sided tap on the top of the footboard works with detering mr. biskit from getting up there. it also lets me know if he had been there and he usually just sits on my bed looking up at Levi with that swishing kitty tail with the look of interest. I just really don't know.
