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 aren't 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.

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

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

Would be good to have guard bettas, like you have guard dogs. Then you could have a threatening sticker on your front door with a picture of your betta on it saying: 'Trespassers beware, I live here'

I am so printing that out and putting it on my molly tank! I'll replace with OMNIvorous fish, which is even worse!!! My molly fish will eat you AND your bones. And your houseplants, and your dog, and your house, and your... you get the drift.
