I tried the pingpong ball, and my fish almost died of fright! He just flared up and wouldn't stop staring at the ball and my (i felt very guilty) are there any other tricks? he is scared of anything in his tank.

I've gotten mine to follow my finger along the front of the tank; more a sign of curiousity than a trick. He also seems to notice when I walk near the tank, probably hoping for food.

I've used a mirror before and it really freaks them out. I don't recommend doing it. One of my males got really stressed out about the mirror and banged himself up. He's fine now, but I'm never gonna show them a mirror again.

i sing to mine and he does a little dance. he really seems to like it. he always comes right up to the glass and kinda shakes and shimmies. i've tested it a 1,000 time, he only does this little performance when i sing to him and am hanging out at his tank

I like to take mine and play multiplayer games on my PC with him. He's pretty good but I always manage to get higher scores than he does.
