My fish is named Bird and he also hates my laptop! I've taken to placing something between his tank and my laptop when I work so he won't get stressed out.

Baldur is a feisty fella and flares at whatever he can! The thing I like the most about him though is how he'll swim up towards the front of the tank whenever I enter the room and walk past him, following my shadow around I guess.

I have my betta, Rhodey, in a 10 gallon on a stand next to the desk. On the desk, I have a 7 gallon tank for my snails (failed betta roomates). Everytime the snails climb up the glass closest to Rhodey's tank, he swims up to the glass and flares at them... they either don't notice or don't care lol. My other betta, Indy, used to flare whenever I watered the plants I had next to his tank. Both boys flare whenever the gecko, dog, or any human other than me gets too close to their tanks.

My CT blue and red male, lovingly names Sir Owen of Hemmingway, he flares his gills at my face sometimes. Whenever I walk to his tank he swims over and flares his gills, he also flared his gills at my camera lens. I have a funny time lapse photo set of him swimming over cautiously and up to the camera with his gill flared.
