    Broken Betta

    So my betta fish won't "puff." He's the only one I've ever seen that won't puff...... but it doesn't mean there aren't more out there. Is this "normal?"

    by puff do you mean "display" like for a fight? i know a lot of bettas that got so used to being in a cup right next to a few other guys that they eventually stop fighting threw the plastic... wouldent put them in the same cup tho!

    Try putting a mirror to it and see if anything happens.

    Yeah, by "puff" I mean their threat display. My past bettas would "puff" at me when ever I'd feed them or anything. This one's just super chill.

    I have tried the mirror and nothing happens w/ that either.

    It's totally okay, lol, just curious if something was wrong with him or not. So he's already tired of fighting this soon in his young life, haha.

    it could be a sign that it's dying when they start to die a lot of times they stop displaying and the ones that don't display in their cups are just over stressed if he doesn't display to his mirror after you've had him away from that situation for a while it's not a good sign typically
