Do yall's betta's do any cool tricks?

So Royale is my blue vt. He just now quit biting and I'm seeing something in him that my other betta Nemo doesn't do. I have tried and tried but Nemo will not jump for anything. Yesterday I started paying closer attention to Roy when I noticed his tail was growing back, since he stopped tail biting. Today I decided that I would try something new when feeding Roy. I wanted to see if he would jump for his pellets. I took 1 pellet on my wet finger and I held it slightly above the water. Roy swam around in circles, then he jumped right out of the water to get his food. I'll try to record it this weekend and post the video. I think it's really awesome that my Roy does this. I didn't realize how smart Roy actually is. Do yall's betta's do any cool tricks, such as this one?

My Baby will jump for her food too. She also will follow my finger when I put it up to the tank. I think it's cute and shows that she knows I'm there.

That's so cool. Roy know's when I am coming he just doesn't quite know what a finger is yet. He will jump for his food and eat off my finger but he won't follow it. Nemo, my avatar, will follow my finger. He doesn't quite know how to jump for his food.

All I have to do it open the door to my hood, and my Blackbeard swims to the smae spot, and waits patiently for me to drop a few pellets in.

My other 2 dont do that. oogie swims around looking for food, and Frazzlez wont eat :/

Hello there, the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack & Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
We'll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we'll wish this never ends
We'll wish this never ends.

I Miss You

My betta Stan will jump to eat from my fingers and follow my finger. It really comes in handy when I have to take him out of the tank. I just put the net in and point....he swims right in :)

Aquarius does a feed me dance. Once I shake that bottle he wags his butt and goes to his spot looking up for food. It's so cute. He does it when I talk to him sometimes only then he will shake his front half and look like he's dancing.
