Have you ever taught your betta to swim through a hoop?

I did. I could hold a towel ring in front of him and he would swim through it! I would have tried to get him to jump the hoop, too. Unfortunately, he passed away, so I do not have any pictures nor can take any pictures.

I tried, but got bored... sometimes I kinda wish betta fish had a little more brain...

I either talk to my fish when I'm mad, or I'm mad because I talk to my fish.

it's when you eventually train your betta to push a ping pong ball around
