Well, at first they were attacking the water as I poured it in. I tried to get a video of that but the tank was already full..
So here is a video of my halfbeaks going after my fingers. :p They do this with basically anything that touches the surface of the water.

Also, though totally fitting, I did not choose the music. It was just a movie my parents are watching in the background. :p

I'm not very good at videos, I just have the iPod. :p Pics, I can try again...
Yea, anything. In the wild they go for any bugs that hit the water so it's like a reflex for them to rush over and attack things.

Crazy flesh-eating live-bearers!!! ;)
Love the new avatar, btw. REALLY gorgeous Betta. . .
Hahaha.. I love fishy attacks like this. However I have one "crazy flesh-eating" fish that nips so hard it takes everything in me not to jump and scare him. I like to hold the food nestled between my fingers in a fist for my Haps so the have to come nipping at my fingers for food lol.

Want more videos Olympia!
