Talking Betta Tricks

Hi peoples! I'm going to get my first Betta soon! (yayz!) and I've done a lot of research (like the nerd I am), and I've been looking up tricks to teach my Betta any ideas?

Hmmm...I can't say my bettas do any "tricks" per se. Although they will (sometimes, if they want to) follow my finger or another object on the glass if I move it around. It's pretty neat actually. And mine always come to the front of the tank to check out what I'm doing whenever I come near. :) One of my females will let me pet her occasionally too.

Good luck! And have fun with your new friend when you find him/her!

Well, you couldn't necessarily 'train' it. But you could make them do tricks without them knowing. The key is food. My Betta jumps for food, follows my finger thinking there's food, it's mostly because of food. Some people even make their Betta flare on command. Well, mine flares when my finger gets too close! ^.^

Just last week at Petsmart I bought a "training wand." It is a tiny little wand with a tiny little holder on it that you can squish a pellet through. Both of my bettas took to it like naturals, eating right off of the wand. I have also seen the floating rings/hoops that they can be trained to go through. But yes, the key is food! :D
Enjoy! Post pictures when you get him/her! :D
