Thumbs up Ripley's Belive it or Not...

My freind was reading Ripley's Belive it or not, and he turned to a page with a betta fish on it. I ATTACKED THE BOOK!! XD I read the article and it said a betta fish named Sir Issac Newton was trained by it's owners to swim through a hoop in a week! I'd love it Lucky or Dragon would do that,Lol! XD

Sorry for wasting time but i'd thought i'd share. (:

I believe it. I had no idea how amazing bettas actually were until I owned them.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Yeah they're amazing little creatures! On the news one night there was a guy who taught his goldfish all sorts of tricks, it was really funny to watch.

The Mythbusters trained goldfish.
The myth was that they don't remember anything after like 2 seconds.

I've seen mythbusters before. they do some pretty cool things on there. one time they tested whether a car could float attached to lots of fire hoses pointed down- and it actually worked!

Yeah I have seen that too! I'd be so cool to attach a mini camara to the fish and train it to vidio other stuff in a huge and well decorated tank.....
