    So, I've read a few times that Betta like to interact with their owners. What exactly does this mean? How does one interact with their Betta? Thanks!

    They get happy to see you, and expect food LOL Every time I move, since my tank is on my desk, Chi and Ume both have to swim over and see what I'm doing LOL

    Let it chase your finger as you run it around the glass. And keep its tank in view of you so he can watch you go about your day

    :;betta2My Betta swims up to the glass to say hello. He definately knows I am there and he usually is begging for food.

    I've noticed that my betta who used to sit right by my desk at home was much more active when he could see me and other people. Now that he's in another room where there is less activity he seems to stay still and doesn't seem to be quite as happy. When my kids and I go into that room and spend time in there he's back to his normal self. I think they just like to be noticed or they seem to get bored...at least mine does. I keep trying to figure out how I can move mine back into a more active area again.

    ^ this. My fish love finger chasing. I have 1 girl that jumps for food :p. You can also get a little hand held mirror and let them flare at their own reflection for a few minutes.
