How to Habituate The Dragon?

Geez, Dragon has really been the center of attention lately! lol

But how can I habituate Dragon? I have tried putting my hand in front of his tank alot, so he's get used to it, but it has no luck. Do you think I should try something else?

ALSO: Dragon has recovered nicely. He isn't hiding as much, he's coming up to the surface, AND exploring! I got my fish back! :DDD

Nice looking guy. What was wrong with him before? Well for starters, I would move different objects near his tank everyday as a stimulant. He just needs more time. He'll start to trust you. Was he really shy before?

He has always been shy. :P

He had a water quality problem- My fault.

I like that Idea, I'll try that.

I have had him for 10 Months.

I put stuff by Alle's tank and trained him to surface for noms with two taps to the hood. He seemed to enjoy it :B
Now Alle is soooo outgoing and such a flirt, I live in a dorm and whenever friends are in my room he gets so excited when they come up and chat with him!
My suggestion (if possible!) is to simply keep him near you. That's what Im doing with my skittish boy atm. I have him on my desk, so I sit on my laptop or draw by him so he can watch me at a distance and get used to ...me XD It seems to be helping! Stuff like that will help. Talk to him, too, he'll begin to like your voice c: <3

Or maybe it's just his personality. Not every betta is the same.
