does your betta do tricks?

Our girl betta Aurora has started a "trick" of sorts, while feeding her we noticed she was jumping out of the water for her food. So the girlfriend put a pellet on her finger and held it about a cm above the water, Aurora jumps up grabs in and gobbles it up. So funny, our boy Bruce just sits grumpy waiting for his.

That's funny; my betta does that also, but unfortunately he now knows how to jump out of his cup when I change out his water ( I do put a lid on it, but I had trusted he wouldn't jump out, so I just put a small piece of paper over) .. He also follows my finger - which if you want I can tell you how - and I tried to teach him how to swim through a hoop, but I lost interest after a while, since my poor sparkey had no clue what he was supposed to be doing

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

Mr. Violet used to follow my finger and this green rubber pencil, but he stopped about few months ago... It's quite sad because he was so cute doing it.
