I need suggestions for cool tricks for a betta. The contest gives out for the grand winner a 500 dollar petsmart gift card. First prize gets 150 dollars and a 15 gallon fish tank. Search the contest. Ends july 2014.
Give me suggestions and how to train the betta to do so.
Hmm... For fish, food is ALWAYS the best motivation. Some things that come to mind: "maze memory", pushing an object through a hoop (as seen on some advertisement for a goldfish and a mini soccer net lol), going through hoops, jumping...
I find it also depends on the fish. Some of mine have a longer attention span than the others.
I do most of them as planning for the breed. I sell the rest of the spawn to this website, eBay, or aqua vid. My parents do not want me to feed my betta insects. They said if I fed it anymore, then my betta would be killed. Help me for the main question and the sup questions that come with it.
Hmmm.... Use tweezers, with food. You can try to guide him through an "obstacle course", making sure to do it once a day to get repetition. Use the same tweezers, same treat. Such items you can use for an obstacle course: Clear tube, plastic bracelets for "hoops", etc.
