Ok so my biggest girl Big Red i've had for about a month, and I accidentally taught her to jump out of the water and hit my hand LMAO! She did it this morning and I just started laughing. She has a pesky tank mate (mini feeder goldfish) that likes to eat EVERYTHING. In order to make sure she got food she'd either have to be on the other side of the tank or really fast (she's not that fast). To compromise (for her) I would hold my hand right above the water until she was right under it and drop food. I've been doing this a day MAX, and this morning she decided that she would jump and hit my finger, obviously excited about food, but now I can get her to do it every time! I taught my fish a trick! I'll try to take a video and get it on here later.

Yes the tank has a lid. To be honest I'm not to happy about the goldfish being in their either but my boyfriend wanted to and I didn't argue him. He's just a tiny minnow type and hasn't grown one bit since i got him.

I'll let my boyfriend know that his gold fish needs to be moved but to be honest he'll probably just flush it. He got it because it was on sale for like 8 cents. I didn't want to start anything so I kept my mouth shut, that and he lets me buy bettas all willy-nilly who am I to say no?

The little guy seems happy enough in his tank though. lively as heck greeting you at the side. Practically swimming in circles to get you to give him food. Now if he didn't move and wasn't so lively I woulda done something a long time ago.
