I saw the most interesting product for fish today..

I was browsing on Petco.com, looking for more decoration for my 10 gallon tank. Well, I found a kit that is supposed to train your fish to do all sorts of stuff, like swim through a hoop, swim through a tunnel, nudge a soccer ball to a goal, or shoot a basket into a hoop, etc.

I thought that was pretty innovative. The box said that the kit is supposed to reduce boredom for your fish and be fun at the same time. I was wondering if anyone else has seen a kit like this before? I'd love to train my betta, Swimmers, to do some tricks and stuff.

I have never used one but I've seen what you are talking about... This is something I would love for my blind betta to stimulate him, but of course, who knows if it actually works, haha?

Yes! I've been thinking about getting it for my betta! There's a youtube video of it. There's also a ton of videos about teaching other tricks to your betta. (:

It would totally work! Psychology has proven that you can condition a fish to do all sorts of things. Thank you Pavlov!

shouldve listed a direct link to the product but i find it anyways. WHAT THE HELL!?! thats pretty crazy!! how with a practice and grow familiarity to me ive been able to make my betta eat pellets off my finger. i just dampen the pellet so it sticks to my finger barely make contact with the water, wait a sec or two til he decides he wants it and bam, eats it off my finger. maybe after awhile ill leave the pellet in my palm and have him swim on :)

There is a video of a goldfish that is using a kit like this on YouTube, "worlds smartest goldfish" or something.
It seems plausible you could train your betta to use it, they are really smart fish, just not sure how easy it would be.
