    It started a couple days ago when I was talking to him above the water, as usual. Then I noticed him move his side fins faster to prepare for a jump right at my face and almost completely out of the water. It happened today again; thought he might think my brown hair is his blood worm treat, but...

    I was feeding him, and i put food on my finger and hovered it above the water, because he jumps for his food. He didn't jump so i put my finger in the water. The food floated away but he didn't notice. So he went and bit my finger. Is this normal. Like it didn't hurt. So now when I put my finger...

    I know their natural jumpers but what makes them jump? Recently, I notice my betta tends to jump whenever I either try to open the lid during feeding time or whenever I put my hand on the lid? But before he didn't. I find it cute but could it be he was trying to catch the food from my finger or...

    Somehow she jumped out of a tiny gap in her tank lid, dropped about three feet, and landed on the carpet. We found her about three minutes after we heard the strange noise that alerted us (we searched her tank first). We had heard a strange noise first, about 10 minutes prior (her trying to jump...

    Hey all! I have a baby betta and he seems jump... a lot. I'm a little worried he will jump out of his tank. None of my adult bettas are that aggressive. For a little guy he seems to jump about 1/2-1in. Sometimes it even makes me jump haha. Any tips?

    Has this ever happened to anyone before? I have this baby betta. I was really sad today because I was dealing with a breakup from a horrid guy who made me look like an idiot. I was just staring at my baby betta and poking my finger at the top of my tank just above the waters surface. He/she was...

    Hi everyone. When cleaning my tank, my betta jumped out of the net and onto the counter. Now he just seems to mope around the tank. He is usually super active, darting around the tank and he would always responds to me. Right after the incident, he would just chill in the bottom, facing the...

    So Royale is my blue vt. He just now quit biting and I'm seeing something in him that my other betta Nemo doesn't do. I have tried and tried but Nemo will not jump for anything. Yesterday I started paying closer attention to Roy when I noticed his tail was growing back, since he stopped tail...

    I have 2 female bettas in a 5 gallon tank divided. The divider is clear mesh, so they can see each other, They have plenty of plants and hiding spaces, so they mostly keep to themselves but occasionally will "battle" through the mesh - it seems to keep them active and healthy. This morning I...

    This eve spinosaurus (as my son has named him) jumped out of his bowl, luckily my son was able to grab him and put him back in the water, he was not responding until I prodded him carefully. He in turn fell to the bottom and after a bit of slow movement in my part (the water) he began to...
