I used to have a beta and my step-sister would put up a mirror next to it to get it to attack its reflection. I had another one years later but it jumped out its tank while I was out at a barbecue and well... died. (Darn kamikaze fish!
Nope, but it could just be that he doesn't have enough room in his little temporary home. I've only ever had Betta fish, I really like them. My SO and I are putting a tank in the kitchen with neon tetras and I want a little African Dwarf Frog (they don't need land), and that led me to deciding I needed a desk buddy tpp. (At least, a desk buddy that doesn't try to sleep on my laptop, like Chloe!
) Bettas do try to jump out of their tanks, it's a good thing mine has a lid (which was necessary anyway because of the cats).
