Betta Tricks! :D

Have you all seen this! It inspires me to try to come up with new tricks for Victor, I think it would be good for him! I've taught Victor how to jump already, just ran out of ideas for other tricks! Now I see this, and I'm inspired! :)

There's also a video of a betta using this kit, so I know they can do it too! I'm not buying the kit, but I would like to get Victor to go through a tunnel :)

Anyone else taught their fish tricks?

Bwhahaha that is AWESOME! I cant believe it does all of that, like swimming throught the poles. crazy!
when I had a oscar when I was about 14/15 I had him trained for a few tricks but NOTHING like that. he would swim through hoops, come for food when you rang a bell, and let me pet him. no one else could pet him though. which actually slightly backfired because then when I would clean his tank and vacuum the gravel, he would rub all over my hand like a cat.. lol!
I love oscars, they just get too big.

Pretty sure that trick might be rigged, but it would be so cool if it was real!

I'm at school so I can't check the video but if this is the R2 fish school I had thought about getting it myself. I tried to make a ghetto ring for my bettas though by getting pipe cleaner and making it into a loop and attaching it with thread to a paint stirrer. They thought it was food at first and would then occasionally swim through it but nothing impressive.

Yeah, it's the same kit! I would rather make this stuff than buy it, but it looked really impressive! The other video is goldfish synchronized swimming, probably fake, but would be a cool trick!

I wish I could teach my sorority to NOT jump. They keep whacking themselves off the glass lid and the sides...I've had one on the floor; my mam has had 2 on the floor at once...Needless to say they aren't trusted anymore.

Only one ever used to jump; but now they are all little copy cats and jump!

It's very annoying lol. I walk in the room and *bang* *bang* *bang* *bang*, the only time they don't jump is when they actually have food...Maybe they are kangaroos in secret?
