My goldfish eat a soft ball sized portion in a day when I put it in.. no training nessasary! They should recognize it as food!!

My goldfish will eat from my hand.. at least they did in the tank I did not try it sometime they are I'm the pond.. I would tap on the front of the aquarium and then feed them.. they soon realize that a tap means food.. I would then hold the food above the tank and they very quickly learned to stick their heads out of water and nip it it from my fingers.!!

My dwarf gourami always does that. So much fun! Sometimes he jumps HIGH and splashes all over my stand

It would be cool but I think I would get that only if I had northern pike or trout or some predator.

Eh?! I’ve seen the teeth on those pike, that will take your finger clean off.
