R2 Fish Training School

Anyone ever use this? My girlfriend got it for me for my birthday and it's going to be real interesting to try. Basically you reward the fish with food for completing a task. There's hoops, tunnels, the limbo, soccer, football and basketball haha. Here's the link to it... Aquarium fish tanks, Goldfish memory , Unique gift ideas , Science fair project :: R2 Fish school

I'm going to try training my betta. Everything will fit in my 5 gal. without major changes to the tank which will be good not to stress him out. Also things go in only for training then come out when you're done so nothing weird stays in there permanently. I won't be doing a ton of training each day so overfeeding won't be a problem. From the videos on the website it really seems to work too. Anyway, I'm going to start training him tomorrow so any big accomplishments I will post for sure. Other than the things I've mentioned does anyone have suggestions of things to be careful for? I'm excited about trying it out I just don't want to hurt my fish in the process.

haha ya I'm very excited. I was just reading through the directions and I'm pretty impressed. It mentions things like not under/over feeding, rinsing each piece before use, and other precautions multiple times throughout. It shows it has a lot of thought put into it and not just a money making gimmick.

PewPewPew, I just realized your from Oswego. I'm about 30 minutes north of Buffalo and went to school in Potsdam for a little while.

Buffalo and Oswego! I lived in Ithaca for 23 years. Then moved to Wisconsin. In any case, I would love to see if there are any results with this. None of my boys do any tricks, they don't follow my finger or anything. Though Loki will follow my finger across the glass, he's cute.

haha very cool! So he's getting used to the feeding stick. Was a little intimidated at first but now that he sees food coming from it he swims right up to it which is good.

Here is the first update. The first trick you teach your fish is swimming through a hoop. I made a video and uploaded it to youtube. Let me know what you all think. Next comes swimming through a tunnel haha.
