    My betta is female and she every once in a while rubs her sides on stuff, is this normal? Water quality is great so is temp and tank is established, plants, bubble filter, and snails. No other signs of symptoms so that is why i am wondering if she is being playful being, she is a baby.... thanks

    Babies are more prone to "flashing" than normal, but it can still be a sign of illness, be it external parasites of some kind or a bacterial build up, or maybe her scales are just itchy... It's not something to be very worried about, but something to pay attention to, it shouldn't be something they do excessively.

    Watch her sides closely!! If you see any white spots or lesions then it would be cause for concern.
