Evil Betta Is Watching You

Comet has the most eyeshine of any betta I've ever had. His eyes are silver, but they're almost all pupil and the pupils practically glow red when the light hits them. The effect is particularly creepy when I spot him watching me when my room is only dimly lit. Two red eyes watching me from the shadows... Even though those eyes are very small.

Thankfully for my sanity, Comet is also the laziest betta I own, preferring to lounge around rather than exert too much effort. Here he's laying on his tank's leaf hammock, watching me while I'm using my computer.

He's especially creepy when the room is dimly lit and the light catches his eyes. Little red eyes glowing in the dimness. But thankfully for my sanity he's a very lazy betta, rather than being the "Imma bite u!" type XD

Nice! =o I love bettas. I have a purple and red crowntail in my 20g with a couple of cories and such. Bettas are almost always my centerpiece fish in a freshwater tank. This is a pretty fella. =o

^_^ I have about 10 bettas right now. Comet is a pale pink with blue-gray markings, and the creepiest of the bunch with those shining red pupils. I love bettas... So much personality and attitude in such a small fish
