Silly things our fish do!

We all know our bettas have 'interesting' individual characteristics : P some unusual and sillier than others! What personality and habits does your betta have? Share here!

Octo thinks he's a fighter jet. He swims to the top of the tank, dives, and zooms through his cave and toy ball, does loop de loops, and swims to the top to do it all over again. He's afraid of my Herpes plush (literally - it's the plush version of what a herpes virus looks like). He zooms off and hides in his cave when he sees it.

Nero (formerly Hestia) is afraid of red nail polish, but eagerly follows Herpes around. He doesn't do much out of the ordinary (he's the normal one out of the two).

Red nail polish? LOL!

Ryu is scared of glow in the dark aquarium plants, eats bubbles from bubblestone, likes to swim with or against the current of his new filter, sleeps on top of his plants like a nest,*cuddles* with his thermometer, litterally yawns after he wakes up from naps, and as soon as he sees my spouse or me-rushes to the surface in his feeding corner and *begs* for food!

this is a fun topic. ^^

my betta yangtze is actually quite...normal. doesn't have any particular quirks or anything. i've had bettas in the past that had very distinct personalities. this guy is quite active, sleeps on top of his heater...his favorite thing seems to be when i put a mirror up to his tank. he LOVES to flare. he flares like crazy and makes his fins as huge as possible. he seems to be very...masculine in some way. lol! kind of stoic, and into fighting.

I just got a female, Kasumi, and I set her tank against Ryu's just to introduce them. Ryu immedietly shot out a lot poop when he saw her and showed off like he was hot stuff! She followed him across the tank-not shy- and turned dark Kasumi is extremely active o.O

My female Suki is quite funny. Whenever someone looks at her, she zooms right over to you and practically paces along the wall until you leave. Then she will go back to her own business. She also loves to rest, lying on her plastic plant.

My mom's male Po, always flares when anyone comes to his tank. He always has some bubble nest going.
