I heard you can teach a fish to jump by holding a bit of food above the water! Maybe you can teach him to go in little circles! That would be cute!

How did you do it?

Maybe have him swim through a hoop, or move a ping pong ball...

CAUTION:Your betta might be overfed by this trick. Here's how I trained her. (It might not work. Do not push your betta into doing something. Always be patient and wait.)Make sure your fish is away from you. Put a piece of food in the water in front of you. Say your betta's name and say "come here." For example:"Perry! Come here." Do that 9-15 times. Then, put the food in front of the tank then say your betta's name and "come here." Do 9-15 few times. Now pretend to put a piece of food in the tank and say your betta's name and "come here." Does it come?(If it doesn't try again. If it doesn't still then just come see me.) Good luck and happy training!

You have to feed them 3x as much as you normally would.... probably would be good to just do it a couple of days and give his stomach a rest for a day or two after.

Oh yes, you can train your betta, sounds soo cute, I have my bettas trained to jump for food, by putting a pellet on my finger, I have one of my bettas sing..lol..(you know when they move their mouth really fast, like they are yelling at you) well,I did that with one of my fish, while playing music..it is hysterical..and yes, they know their names if you call them by their names a lot, and they will recognize your voice, as well.

Bettas are very intelligent, and they have the ability to be trained like dogs. I talk to my bettas all the time, spend a lot of time watching, and observing all their activity..they are a lot of fun, and wonderful lil fishy's to have.

There is a Betta Training Kit, that I saw on Amazon.com and you can train your betta to play with a ping pong ball, and swim in an out of hoops, it's a very cool kit.
