Lily is not the oldest of my bettas, but she's definitely the most entertaining. Don't get me wrong--my boys are plenty of fun--but they're more creatures of habit. Kefentse, for example, will stare at me from behind the glass to discern whether or not I will be A) giving him food now, or B) giving him attention now. He will then dart/wiggle over to the pane of glass where he can see Gromit the goldfish from, act fierce and then retreat to his lair. Volly (Formerly named Hati; the name change was prompted by his personality coming out) is much the same. Lily finds new and terrifying ways to remind me she's the princess of the house nearly every day. She has decided that she is more than a match for our cat, JoJo. He's a lazy thing, mostly watching the fish and being a cat-shaped lump, so he never really does anything to antagonize her. However, she will gladly dart to wherever he is watching from and tease him. I am not sure if this is done out of interest or evil, really. She is also terribly nosy. All fish are, because they are curious things, but she's nosy and aggressive. If the dogs come into the room to have a drink, she will swim over to the lowest possible point in her tank nearest them and watch them intently. Kiba, my husky, will nose the glass, which Lily absolutely hates. Her worst little exploit, though, was quite scary. She discovered that there was a small dip in the filter where the bubbles come out, and declared this her hiding place of the day. I walked into the room where her tank is only to see a tiny blackish-blue head sticking out of the filter. I panicked, because I thought she'd become wedged inside or something. Then I realized that the water at that little dip is being pushed out, and sure enough, Lily comes out like "HA!" ... and people say fish are boring!
