    0A757C59-38D9-4501-BC1E-F6D0413B6341. Any of y’all have fish that can do tricks? My female betta (Flush) swims between my fingers. I usually stick my four fingers in and she weaves between them a few time then angs out with mr. Vampire shrimp

    All of my bettas will jump for their food if I haven’t already dropped pellets in.

    One of my black neon tetras breached 2 inches out of the water for a pellet.

    I remember watching that video when it just came out. Can't believe they're still selling the kit after 8 years.

    2 of my bettas know how to jump for their food. One of my betta, Gilbert used to. But he's now a very old man.

    Having a betta is like having an aquatic dog. Each one has a unique personality, and they're smarter than people think, and very trainable.

    Years ago, I remember a video of Jackie Chan with his indoor pond full of fish. But he seemed fond of one fish in particular. I don’t know what species it was, but it was a catfish, and it appeared to be a rather big one too. He’d call after it, and the fish would swim over to him. I think it even did a few belly rolls.
