Training Bettas

I'm now in the process of trying to train my girl, Einstein. I can get her to follow my finger (sometimes), swim through her log (sometimes), but I don't know how to train her to do anything else...I don't want to over feed her! I'm pretty sure she also knows her name. And she greets me when I walk through the door.

How do you train them to do these things on command? What kind of commands do they respond to? Again, how can you train them so fast when they can only eat 4-6 pellets a day? Is there a way to train them without food?

someone actually posted this as a response to one of my videos on youtube. i thought it was pretty neat:

you give them a treat of some kind, right after they do what you want. and keep doing it that way. eventually, they learn that doing what you fed them for was a good thing, and do it on their own, without treats. :U
