Hi everybody, I'm new here and wanted to get to know a little more about my Betta. I've had Fishy for about a year and a half now and have fallen in love with all the little things he does. He currently lives in a 3 gallon tank with a fake tall plant and a Spongebob Pineapple house. Up until about a month ago he was always happy to see me swimming up and down and side to side. Now he still swims up to me but full gills flared. I thought it was temporary but he hasn't stopped. He stops doing it to eat his food but as soon as he is finished he goes back to flaring. I haven't really changed his feeding habits or anything. The only thing I've done differently is use a net to catch him when changing the water in his tank. Before I would just pour him into the cup he came in. Could he be mad about that? Its been a little while so I figured he'd forget about that kind of thing after some time. Do bettas hold grudges? And if so how do I make it right? :-(

:0 So I have to live with angryface forever!
Haha! I'll try not to take it personal. Its just that I've seen bettas make that same face when they want to fight other fish. D: I guess as long as everyone doesn't think its a big deal. Just don't want to ignore any "signs" you know?
