Treat Wands are Mighty Suspicious to Nick

Nick is really responsive to me being around the tank, so I thought I would have a go at training him since I spent money on this fish training kit like a putz and I intend to have at least one educated fish. Well, Machiavelli will swim through a hoop at least.

But it turns out he is more convinced the feeding wand is more of a threat than even his own reflection... also more vexing than snails. Nick loves attacking snails.

......I've tried showing him that food comes out of it, but he just keeps swimming around flaring and even ignores the pellets even though he is a total piggy otherwise.

10g:
20g tank: 4 neolamprologus multifasciatus + babies
5.5g: Nick - doubletail male
75g: harlequin rasbora, peacock gudgeon, green cory, red rainbowfish

Well at least you have a flare-on-demand item for photo taking now ^^ My two flare happy boys are [censor]s when the camera comes out, never let me get a perfect full flare in focus shot >.<

Due to photobuckets bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my old photos helpful.
