Oh! Just out of curiosity, what state are you from?
They are adorable!
My Shinny jumped a lot when I gave her food but I thought it was just instinct. I didn't know you could actually train them like other pets.
Just last week, I put her in a shallow bowl to clean her tank and found it empty when it returned. Naturally, I freaked out and went looking all around the bowl. Turns out, she jumped out, fell onto the table, flopped around and fell onto the floor. I felt terrible! It was worse knowing that she was there for a good 5 minutes while I was cleaning.
I scooped her up though, even though I was convinced she was dead, and put her back in water. Miraculously, she survived with no bruises or broken bones. Well, I learned my lesson.
She's one hardy fish! Survivor of Dropsy and a nasty fall.
