Animation for concept studio made for my betta fish, Giacometti. It's designed specifically for him to interact with. Let's hope it works.

Coloration would make it even more convincing :D I think it works on my boy. I've just never seen him flare his gills before though...maybe it's just his type, I don't know. Thanks for this! It's wonderfully realistic :)

when they do that it means they're defending themselves or territory. just letting anyone know.

I have a blue beta fish named Dobey. He is afraid of my pencil eraser, so he puts up his frills. It is cute!

So cute how it flares. I should show my betta and see how he reacts.

Unless it has color, I'm not sure he would be able to figure out the subject from the background? Cool idea though. I love bettas <3

He recognized the movement I think and was interested in it for a little while, but then just got used to it. XD Thanks!

My beta fish would have tried to kill it on sight. We used to have two of them and we could never put their separate bowls next to each other, otherwise they'd just get in a frenzy :P

This is very nicely done though. I recognize the way the fish moves, which shows its character. Cool stuff.

He actually wasn't. He was intrigued with it at first, then lost interest. :shrug:

mhmm. We had decided this before we bought one. If we got a red one, it was going to be named Ambient and if we got a blue one it would be Specula or Reese. All the blue ones sold quick and when we went to go get one, they only had a red one and white one. Ironically, he's got brightly colored green scales on his body that match the color of Ambient's eyes.

I heard that betta fish don't like being around other betta fish. Are you sure it's a good idea?

(Not trying to butt in you life, just saying.)

Yeah, he wont' be able to hurt himself or anything. And if he can recognize it as another fish then I'll be impressed (with him). But thank you.

i was going to say, from the looks of it you have a beta fish. i absolutly love those fish. i used to collect them. yes collect i used to have seven in my room at once, my parents couldnt believe it. sadly though one winter night they all died over night due to it got too cold. i was so upset i had some of the uniqueist colors i could find.

watching this just edges me to go out and buy some more!
