Smile Do you think it would be possible?

Okay, so I was in my room, looking at my bettas and I got this crazy idea. What if bettas could be therapy animals? After all, they are social. It would be nice to train the betta with r2 fish school or something, help it be social, and then take it to visit some "clients" and show them the betta doing tricks, maybe even let them try to get it to do tricks. As for transporting them, they could have a separate travel tank, maybe a small kritter keeper or something. Please vote if you think it's possible or not!

Fish have been proven to have a calming effect on people by just watching them swim around. Just like dogs, this reduces stress and leaves you not as tense. Maybe it could help people with anxiety or anger issues.

That's what I think, too.
