Talking Playing with your betta

Hello I am still pretty new to the site. I have a 2.5 gallong tank so there is only so much I can put into it. I have 3 live plants and one face one plus a cottage/castle thing.

Do you guys have any suggestions for more entertainment? If there a way I can play with him or something??

Thanks for your help!!!

You could throw a stick and see if he brings it back? j/k
You could show him a mirror. That's the best I can come up with. I'm sure somebody else will suggest something.

ping pong balls .. hanging mirrors .. danging keys next to his tank .. wiggling ur fingers .. talking to him .. letting him watch tv .. training him to jump for food ..

hmmm .. nick is giving me ideas to try and teach my betta to fetch .. mine already pushes his marimo ball to the right side of his tank when i put it on the left side lol does that count as fetch ? =O

I taught my male sugar glider to fetch, might be able to do it with a fish.

I like to teach my bettas to swim through hoops, with a small food reward afterwards of course :3

Two of mine like to watch netflix with me. One loved Thor, but he's fairly young... I think it was all the flashy stuff.

Little Boy and Fluffy both watch my community tank (tetra tetra tetra guppy molly) that also has two girls in it.

Glee is beside my 6 girl sorority, they're in a Hex-5 right now, next weekend he gets to be in the Hex-5 while they're in the 20 long.

I've got a veil tail beside me that watches me playing Everquest 2.

The mirror is a useful idea, walmart has little folding stand mirrors for a couple bucks, I use one because I can lean the mirror against the tank.
Little Boy will flare at it until he falls asleep!
