Is it possible??????

I just manage to "teach" to follow my finger and for him to get use to me and not be affraid of me anymore!! I just got him yesterday too. Ok is it possible to master his following me and my fingers without any food or treat?? Also how do I teach him to know that I'm his owner and make him love me?

Yeah. You don't usually have to do anything to make a fish follow your finger. They just do.

How do I make him love me and recognize me personally? I love the little guy since he is still young, only roughly a size of a guppy!

You can't, really. Every fish has a different personality. You can't really "train" a fish to love you, more than you could train a human to love you.

Don't feed him just because he acts strange. Only feed him on his regular schedule. 2 pellets, twice a day is plenty. Just let him be.
