Thumbs down Thunder storm... poor Bettas

Neon is belly crawling on his substrate under a driftwood cave I made him. Ryu is just laying motionless on his substrate under a silk plant. My new CT is hiding in his silk plants... All because of a thunderstorm. I know their tanks are being vibrated when thunder hits as I am so I know they have to be. I hope they don't get too stressed out

It might help to put on the TV a little louder to help drown out the storm's vibrations. Maka wouldn't come out of her plant until the storm stopped. Aki took refuge behind his buddha. Maybe cover their tanks to dim it abit? Or try to get them to think: "Storm + treat." Maybe try giving them some bloodworms or brine shrimp?

Aww.
When I first got my male VT, there was a thunderstorm and both times it thundered he flew into his plant, burying his face in it with his butt (tail) trailing behind.
It was very sad but a tiny bit funny/cute cause he didn't have anything to completely cover him...at the time. He was okay though!
He came back out when the thunder stopped.

Sir Crispin isn't a fan of thunderstorms, either. We've been having a ton of storms and a few tornadoes over here, and he hides during the worst of it. Plants of all things seemed to help; he snuggles in and under leaves during the worst of it and seems to be fine afterwords.

That's how Aki acted during the second thunderstorm we had with him in his tank. Mostly swam about and was generally more hyper...

The storms here affected my fish too, they weren't scared, but they were less active when the thunder came around (and I live next to a lake, so its EXTRA loud). They made it through fine, and are perky and swimming around all happy again.

my boys always obliterate their nests during storms. .____. other than that, they don't do much that they don't normally do.

Mine seem to build nests right before it storms. I never really noticed how they act during one.
