I use my 10 gal as a "nightlight" at bed time... and I think "dal" my damation crown tail betta hates me because he always comes to the top left corner (near my head) and flares up... but its kinda funny because he has some black on his gills so it looks like a giant smiley face Smile I'll try to take a pic

Your betta is most likely seeing its reflection. Pics would be awesome. A mad smiling betta. Lol

wow, now that is too funny... here's another way to figure out if he hate ya. leave the lid off the top of the tank and if he splashes or spits water on ya all night, then i would say, yeah he hates ya. Razz

Mine definitely has attitude, but I think the spunky ones live the longest, lol!

I'd really like to see the pic - is he one of those orangey ones?

No, I don't see the happy smile. I see one angry betta. You're right, Kin, he does hate you. Bettas hate everyone, including female bettas. That's just the way they are!

I have a great pic of my betta, Winthrop, scowling at me. It's hilarious!
Very Happy

Deborah, I think the black on his gills look like a "smile" or a "mustache". So I just laugh when he gets mad... but he's so pretty. I wish I could get better phone pictures of him! I've always wanted a dalmation (spotted) betta! He was about $8 but worth it to me to see his beauty everyday!

thats hilarious! he is really pretty too! ive started seeing these betta strains in the LFS called king bettas and i really want one but they are so big! and i think bettas make great community fish! ive always kept them in community tanks along with a few females. he likes to terrorize them, but i enjoy territorial aggressive fish in my communities, and have become very adept at tricks to keep things from getting too rough Smile

the tank i have now is a 75gal community tank that includes a male and 3 female bettas. he mated with the alpha female and the fry from that mating are now free-swimming and stay pretty close to dad. i thought he would be done with the nest guarding, but instead he has mated with the alpha female again PLUS the other two and now has all their eggs in his nest. i dont know if he will ever be done lol. he does chase the females away, but between all the plants and hiding space, and the size of the tank, he cant really do much more than charge them before he feels the need to go back to his unprotected nest.

oh and btw, when you say "nightlight" i think of the kind my son leaves on all night when he goes to bed...so i feel the pressing need to tell you that your betta may truly hate you because fish dont have eyelids and can only sleep in the dark....tho im quite certain you already know that and would hate for you to feel condescended and be making your best betta face at me right now Razz
