    Hey guys,

    Has anyone ever seen there Betta nip at the tank glass? When I got close to his tank today he started getting excited because he relates me with food and a couple times he kinda nipped at the glass.. is it possible he saw a reflection or something?

    My betta used to do that. I wouldn't worry too much about it, as for my betta lived a good 3-4 years.

    Ok thank you. Just curious, what kind of Betta was it?

    Plakat betta. I also owned a crowntail betta. They are quite impressive.

    My delta tail will sometimes headbutt the tank glass when I drop a pellet in front of him. I guess he thinks his food might run away so he's "cornering" it.

    My crowntail will make aggressive kissy faces (doing that fishface gaping motion will wriggling his tail and madly flapping his pectoral fins) when I wave the food container in front of him, but he hasn't tried to take a chunk out of the glass yet.
