OK, I got my Fred , red VT, trained to do his jiggle for food.
I also have him trained to follow my index finger above the water surface before I reward him with food during feeding time.
Yesterday, my index finger probably got moist and the Omega One pellet got stuck to it. I tried to gently "flick it off" with my thumb and the pellet took off. Before you knew it Fred jumped out of the water (1/4", head & 1/3 body out) and dived towards the pellet that landed 2 inches away.
I am wondering if he'll jump out and bite me, actually do they bite?
