Yeah maybe. I'm teaching Perry to come when it's breakfast. How many times can I feed Perry? She's kind of a baby

one of my friends accidentally taught her betta to fetch. she accidentally dropped a coin in the water, and the fish went and retrieved it. So she did it again and the fish brought it back again.

you can train them to flare on command if you like. take a thin-beam flashlight and a small mirror. hold the mirror up to the tank and as soon as he flares, flash the light. do this a few times a day for a week or so, then start trying it without the mirror, just flash the light. if he's caught on to the game, he will have a conditioned response and flare at the light alone.

i saw a video on youtube of a guy who taught a betta to jump back and forth between two bowls of water. i can't even fathom how long that took, or how long it's been since that guy was on a date :p

Well, I didn't train him to do this, but I was using the zoomed mirror today, and Mori was way more interested in the ball than the mirror. He ignored his own reflection, staring intently at the ball, and then jumped and hit it with his head! I thought it was hilarious. Anyone know of any tricks with a ball I can teach him?

Probably put some food in the tank and put the ball on top (the ball has to float) and then he has to figure out how to move the ball. My friend did that and it looks easy because she used a ping-pong ball. Perry just looks at it like what are you doing here?
