Flushy does not like his thermometer.....

Every time I put the thermometer in the water, Flushy goes nuts. He does a ritualistic dance around it. I don't think he can see his reflection, but he is focused on the red ball at the bottom. Why do you think it bothers him?

We have a different type, but I swear just about every betta I have had, has nipped at the thermometer when they were new to the tank. So odd.

I think that's just CTs for you! My bf and I have an ongoing joke with our CT Jagger - I will hold up just about anything in front of his tank and he will flare at it. ("Yup, looks like Jagger doesn't like [fill in the blank] spatulas, lipstick, carrots, hot sauce, EW Magazine, etc"..). Haha they are so funny.

Wow. Flushy looks just like my Ross. He's a big flare guy too. He always flares when I approach him with my phone/camera. Are you sure he can't see his reflection in that thing at all? Or maybe the bright red of the ball of the themometer makes him think thats an intruder.

the second pic is Ross flaring at my Cowboys bear LOL

He is definity focused on the red ball. He doesn't attack it like he attacks the mirror.

Mine is just being nasty today. He keeps flaring at me, at my pencil, at my hand sanitizer, everything!

He has also been eating off my fingertip. I put the pellet on my finger and hold it just above the water, he leaps to get the pellet. A few minutes ago I help my finger above the water with no pellet. It was a little higher then usual. He leaped at it. Was he going to bite me? Did he want to eat my flesh?

I forget to mention, Flushy now has a heater in his water. The temperature is hovering at around 78 degrees. I notice that since i added the thermometer he is much more active and aggressive.
