No it's not too early to start! Food is the motivator here. Get him used to eating out of the ring as it floats then gradually use a target (idk, use your finger or a pen cap or something) and reward him with a pellet/bloodworm when he goes through the hoop.

They're quite smart and they're like dogs in that they'll do anything for food! Have fun and enjoy training your fish :)
