Does anyone play with their fish?

when I come home from work, Creo is always very energetic to see me, and swims all around his tank very quickly. Its pretty nice, but I dont know what to do, I feel the need to pet him and throw a ball haha. Can you buy/make some sort of toy for them to play with or some way to entertain him, apart from using a mirror and making him flare.

how do you guys interact with your fishy friends??

You can teach him to swim through a hoop, to jump up for food. I stick a pellet on my fingertip & hold it just above the water & they jump up to get the food. With my girls I put my hand into the tank almost daily & get them to swim into my hand then I raise my hand a little out of the water, cupped so there's a little water left in my hand then I lower my hand & the swim out. I've heard of letting them push around a ping pong ball (I think it was) or something similar. Use your imagination, they like the interaction.
