7th Grade Science Project!

So in my science class, we're starting a science project! (yaaay) Well, this year is Life Science, and Mr. Heath says he would like us to do something based on life. I was thinking maybe I could do a project based on betta fish!
I REALLY NEED IDEAS :O

Here are a few...
  • Can you train a betta fish? If so, which is easier; female or male? (I have both)
  • Does lighting affect their behavior?
Seriously... I need ideas, all would be appreciated.. its okay If i cant do this though! Just got my fingers crossed!

Well, there is the obvious how temputure affect them. Then you could do stuff on background information such as where they normally live, and how wild betta fish are not the colors of some you find in pet stores.

you could do a project on the colour combinations, for example, which two colours would you have to breed for the best possibility of getting red? blue? etc...

OR, you could do a report on how bettas are one of the most misunderstood pets, like must people think they will like living in a thimble-full of water, where they really need a larger tank and a heater, etc.

I was on yahoo looking for some betta projects and someone said this..

"There was a cute thing they did on mythbusters where they trained the fish to go through a maze of sorts to prove they had a longer memory than 3 seconds. It was really interesting. You could do something like that"

that sounds sooo neat! I wonder how they did that?! I'm definitely looking into it...

Hmm.... I think I'll try to train my male and female... then see which one caught on quicker... etc.. and I also might try to train a tetra to see if schooling fish work well learning independently(:
