Betta tricks/Betta games?

So, I'm absolutely DELIGHTED with my Betta; Aoi. And also myself.

I've started to try and teach him to flare at me when I puff out my cheeks; and so far, HE'S GOT IT!!!
It's SO funny! I have to try not to burst out laughing when he actually does it and doesn't get distracted by thinking I'm just going to feed him. So far, I call it the "I'm bigger than you!!!" game.

Does anyone else have any tricks/games they play with their Bettas??
I read somewhere that someone is able to feed their Betta right from their fingertips, and also plays "Scare the mommy." Where he floats himself to get her attention. (Adorable~)

The person who feeds them from their fingertips is my gf pewpewpew, she likes to feed all her fish that way, i never tried it because i didnt want my fingers to get nipped lol. With my recently deceased betta, crooks, i would put my finger to the glass and he would flare at it like nobodys business lol ^^;

When I feed my girls daphnia through a glass eyedropper, I hold it over Sakuras water. She follows it where ever so I make her dance in circles :3 My spouse makes Kasumi jump and bite his finger, tweezers, or anything else. I wanna get all of them toys :)

DS2009-- D'aww, lol. My fish is a rageaholic, I sometimes grab a mirror and he'll flare at it, then swim around for a good 3 minutes or more flaring at everything around lol. Me, his filter, his plants, the bubbles rising to the surface of his water... Lol. Makes me giggle.

Larsa-- Adorable! I don't overly wanna get mine to jump; just in case he tries to jump in the tank (don't want him hitting the lid, lol)
I've also heard pingpong balls make good toys for them, and it's relatively cheap. If you have live plants, putting in new plants can keep them engaged for awhile too (especially moss balls)

Bettalover2000-- Omgar! I love the one where he goes through the hoop, hehehe!
