ithis was on a nother forum and i think someone said that the people fed the goldfish metal pellets and then used magnets under the table to make them move cause notice the goldfishes tails arent moving

I think the magnet theory is the strongest.
I don't completely dispute the idea that they were trained, however.

the table seemed low for that many magnets moving the fish in all those movements.. unless they were on sticks and being moved from outside the camera somehow. although it looks like a news show segment and either the reporter is in on the scam or really stupid if people were there moving magnets around.. i don't know.. fish keeping has been going the longest in asia and it's possible that trainer's life is his little goldfish or it could be magnets somehow.

The magnets would be under the table and may have been automated.
It may have been a variety show. Those kinds of shows are pretty popular in Japan, and so the announcer would be in on it.
Like I said though, I'm not precluding training. I've seen koi trained to do pretty amazing things. Just something about the way the fish moved seemed, well, fishy (or maybe not-so-fishy

Geez...who knows? I haven't even put any effort into my goldies, and they do pretty cool "tricks" for food. I suppose it's possible that they could be trained. I sure hope the magnet theory is wrong...that would kill the fish, I'm pretty sure.

yeah, but I'm not worried, your bites never hurt. They just look scary... but harmless. As always!

OOOOOOH, that's a dangerously open-ended question:

THAT is what they'll think of next, for example...

Well there is always fishschool.com. That guy has trained his son's goldfish to score a goal for food!
