All these tricks make me want to train mine! I don't think they are energetic or hungry enough to really do anything besides maybe flare on command though :(

Now I love bettas and everything about them I love the idea of being able to train them to do certain things. The only thing is I am like terrified of having my fish touch me. I know I am probably the only one that is that way. I am afraid to touch them and have them take food from my hand. How can I get over this?

Most of the time it's the other way around. The betta doesn't want to touch you. Maybe it's just the feeling of it. I like to do this: touch it more so you get used to it. Just don't squish your betta!
