I've trained my male to come to the surface with 3 taps on the outside of his tank. My female will jump for her food.

mine comes out when I knick on his glass, swims into a little cup to be scooped out, gets in the way when I'm using scissors or tweezers and eats just about absolutely everything

mine comes to the top of the tank when its feeding time even before i start to feed him.

he also will jump for food and i have a game where i take the end of a white plastic spoon and just put the tip into his tank and he will chase it around for a while. i give him treats after

Most of mine have been taught to follow my finger so when I take videos it makes it much easier :o
My vt Magic was taught to jump about two centimetres out of the tank for food, came to the surface with three taps and was taught to swim into the net/cup if I needed to move him. He has since passed on...

I had a boy once named Patriot who I taught to swim through a hoop!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...
