Tricks your betta does

What tricks can your betta's do? Taz is starting to recognize me and follows my hand since he knows I will feed him

Buddha knows hide and seek very well.

And I used to joke that he knew "play dead" better than my dogs, because I'd often interruppt him during his afternoon nap and I always swore he was dead haha

Sushi is a very finicky eater. He only eats Omega One flakes... I started dampening my fingertip, sticking a flake on the tip of my finger and making him chase my finger. He's turned it into a little game. He chases my finger, flares and jumps out of the water to snatch the flake off my finger!! It's so awesome and he's so darn cute when he grabs the flake and swims off to eat it. Like a puppy taking his treat into the corner to hide it! lol

I used to put my finger in the top of the tank with Tetsu and he would brush up against it and then wait about an inch away for me to put food in, :( I miss Tetsu now. I haven't had Tenzen for more than a couple of days his "trick" is go flare at me when I put my mouse hand too close to the tank and run behind his budda lol.

My Crusoe jumps for food too. He did it immediately after I got him. I have a metal bookmark with a ceramic turtle charm on it that dangles off the end and he enjoy chasing it when I wiggle it around. No matter what side of the tank he is on, if he sees it then he rushes over to show it who's boss. If I place it in the water, he chases it. Of course, when I take it out and place it near the tank he finds it and flares at it. Gotta show him who'se in charge. They're archenemies.

I wiggle my pinky finger above the baby bettas tank and he jumps up and bites it. I'm not sure that's really a trick but he's one of two bettas that will do that out of the 8 I own.

another betta I have swims up out of the water on his side up on top of his water lettuce chasing pellets that get caught in the filter current :D
