My male red betta, Butch knows how to leap for his food. he does it really well. I was wondering though if there is any other trick i can teach him so he wont be bored all the time. The cool thing is i when i call him he swims to the front and looks at me :D . So if any1 knows any tricks i can teach butch please post it. Thank you. :) I already tought him how to leap for food and Pay attention when i call his name.

My fish, Tango, jumps and responds to his name too!
I taught him to jump through a hoop. I held the "hoop" (a plastic braclet) by submerging the hoop 1/2 inch, and holding food for him to get. Eventually he learned to jump through when it isn't touching the water.
Although it might not look to proffesional because his fins drag once his body it through. [/quote]

I've seen this! It was on animal planet ^_^ It wasn't a Betta though, just some lady who thought her goldfish might be bored and taught it to jump through hoops. I was amazed. I too look forward to seeing it!
