Coral, My Delta Tail (Lot's Of Ready!)

Hello, I just bought a new Delta Tail male named Coral just last night at Petco! I also can't figure it out, how do I post my own messages on here? Anyways, Coral seems to greet me when I come up and sometimes I can click and "call" him to me. I'm gonna practice catching his attention once his moves from his Petco bowl (I already started that actually hehe) and after a bit practicing "follow my finger". I don't really wanna teach him to jump due to I' afraid that water will fly out and he'll, by nature, jump out. I have plenty spare paper but there (hopefully) should be just enough room to jump by nature maybe like poking his head above the surface if anything. :) Some tips and tricks for your Betta Fish: Tip 1: Common myth, Betta Fish will easily survive in the box bowl you get them in or a occupied vase. FALSE!!! You should probably at minimum get a 2 gallon tank. Tip 2: If you want a female and a male to get along but they fight, either get two calmer Betta Fish, or get them use to each other. Put a divider in the tank or maybe put them in separate tanks close to one another so they get use to one another. Now onto tricks! Trick 1: Your Betta fish needs exercise and you need a simple way to do it? Try, "follow my finger". How to start this trick? Start to get your Betta's attention by poking the surface of the water with food on your finger. If he/she goes up to your finger, then reward it with the food. After doing this successfully a couple times, put food on your finger and drag it along the surface of the tank. If this is done successfully a couple to a few times, try it without food. If you still need to train him/her with food though, make sure to not overfeed it! Trick 2: If you've mastered the "follow my finger" trick and want a little more, try jumping. This is easier, in my opinion after learning the "follow my finger" trick. Starting the trick? Simple. Get food or treats on your finger and 'tease' your Betta Fish. Eventually he/she will want to get the food and jump up to get it. After doing this a few times, try it with nothing. Remember, don't overfeed the Betta! I hope these tips helped you and that these tricks helped you spend more time with your Betta Fish and give him exercise! Please let me know if you did! Good day! Good month! Good year! Good LIFE!
