ahahah that would be cute.
i don't see why it wouldn't work, bettas (at least from my experience) are pretty easy to train.

i feel like it would be harder for betta since they can't eat that much food. It will be harder to reinforce them when you can only do one trick 6ish times a day.

bettas have longer memory recall then goldfish .. you wouldn't have to reenforce the behavior as much in a day with bettas as you do with goldfish ..

and bettas are a lot easier to train then goldfish IME

I think they both have short term memory span of 5 seconds. Even if they don't, it will take the same amount of times to reinforce the behavior. Memory only helps with doing the behavior but it doesn't help them relate their behavior with the positive reinforcement.

I know I couldn't do it - my tank is too full of decor to get the school in! :p

It looks like it owuld be fun to try if I had the time and money. But I have a hug hiding place and plants in my 5 gallon already. I don't know if the school would fit in my tank either.
