Maybe the fish have been watching too many nature shows?!

The betta is banned from watching African wildlife shows as he is sneaking up on the fish food, taking it into a death roll and sinking to tank bottom. I've tried explaining that fish flakes are really not that tricky to catch but so far no luck

I've never kept an aquatic animal that could hurt me, but I used to have a female betta who would lunge at and try to bite my finger if I held it close enough above the surface. Her jaws weren't big enough to get a grip so she'd just bounce right off.

Sometimes my harlequin rasboras do the same thing when I need to reach into the tank to retrieve something. Sometimes the endlers nibble my hand, too. They all think my hand is made of food.
