For Haloween I bought a couple of those dancing figurines. My girl Cherry Bomb dances with them and absolutely loves the lights that flash with the beat. If she were human, she'd belong in the city and live the nightlife. Very responsive and social fish. She also jumps for her food and attacks it voraciously. My boy Sinbad also would dance, but eventually got bored with it.
My female Betta scarlett had a Chinese ruin type decoration in her 4 gallon and it had little triangle holes in the top of it on all 4 sides and through out the day as she would scout out her tank she would go and put her head in each little hole and look all around inside of it making sure there was nothing in there lol shes always so curious about anything new in or around her tank
I think he's figured me out, he looked at my finger tip, turned around, swam up to where I was, puffed his cheeks out, and kept his attention on me. It took a minute before he made an effort to attack.
My bettas always do cute things.. that or /facepalm things... but this time, it was my boyfriend lol
Him (walks up with his head down): "Can bettas explode?"
Me: "What did you do to Butters?"
Him: "I have been putting a mirror up for about 5 minutes a day, but got caught up in Star Wars and forgot.. it was up for about 20 minutes and Butters was twitching. And every time I made a move on my desk he would rush up to the side and flare at me. He won't stop twitching.."
Me: *facedesk* "Dim the lights and he'll settle down.. poor fish"
Butters is about a 3 month old orange cellophane dalmation who twitches and shakes his head back and forth fast when he thinks you are looking at him, and will react every time he sees my boyfriend play with the dog in the room by following the ball/rope up in the air, etc. He's a very energetic fish.. and 20 minutes in front of a mirror, holy cow for that fish, it's no wonder he didn't explode! 15 minutes later he is still swimming around the tank fast and flaring at the plants..
