Swimming Through a Hoop
For swimming through a hoop, you need to have taught him the follow the finger trick first. Use a pipe cleaner to make the hoop. You should hang the hoop on the side of the tank so it touches, so the betta can see your finger when you teach him. Put your finger on the tank and slide it 'through' [on the side of the tank] the hoop. Give a treat/reward when he swims through it. Just do this until it's got it down, then whenever you put a hoop in the water he'll swim through it.

Flaring on Command [follow the finger on the page before btw]
For flaring on command, just take a small mirror on the side of the tank and put your finger next to it so your betta can see it. When he flares, reward him. Keep doing this until you can take the mirror down and it'll just flare at your finger.

Also, where is this contest? o-o

I do that. He comes to me. And i invented a perfect betta toy. It is an easter egg(plastic) with two holes. I then hole punched the egg. Afterwards i then put the treat in there. The betta smells it and goes and attacks it, making the food come out. My mom will take me to petsmart soon. And i will make a diy filter (sponge) and a heater and food to replace the soon to be expired food.

Thanks BlueLacee c:

Good, reward him. And thanks, I'm going to see if I can train Atlas a little more for the contest. He knows how to do the hoop and finger but that's about it [merely], since he learns the fastest. Can you do more than one trick in the video?

Yes, just has to be in the one minute slot.
NOTE: The 2 gallon betta tank that national geographic made will be where he thrives with a heater if i win 2nd place. Bettas are original, dogs are not.
