Jumping for Food

So even though he doesn't flare, I managed to teach my betta to jump for a bloodworm! :D I dipped my finger in the tank so it was wet, and then poked a bloodworm making it stick to my finger. I then held my finger about half an inch above the water, and BAM! He nabbed it right off my finger haha.

I'm thinking of seeing what other kind of tricks I can teach him, maybe not "tricks" but habits for entertainment haha (:

Anyone here teach their bettas neat tricks?

I think their mouths are too small to actually do damage or hurt you, but it is way cute.
