You can play with your betta fish by:
- Providing objects such as ping pong balls and floating logs for your betta to play with
- Using laser pointers or small mirrors
- Training your betta fish to follow your hand, swim through hoops, play soccer, or even come up to the surface to greet you
Play sessions can help betta fish prevent boredom. You should play with your betta fish every day, but do it in moderation. A 10-minute session each day should be enough. Always monitor your betta’s behaviors during play sessions and stop immediately if your betta looks tired or distressed.
